Example text

In the text to follow, I have arranged the early chapters, which have been previously published, in their chronological order of appearance. Chapter 1, "Heidegger's Philosophy of Technology," was my own first look at Heidegger on technology. This was one of the earliest interpretations of Heidegger on technology to appear in English. The subsequently republished chapters show two things: first, as the reader will detect, my take on Heidegger began early to become critical, and second, each chapter began to take shape as a perspective upon Heidegger.

These forces, which everywhere and every minute claim, enchain, drag along, press and impose upon man under the Gestalt of technological installations and arrangements-these forces, since man has not made them, have moved along since beyond his will and have outgrown his capacity for decision. 29 Thus Heidegger, just at the beginning of his 1950s publication splurge, also proclaims the theme of autonomous technology. With multiple variations, this theme continued to dominate Euro-American philosophy of technology through the mid-twentieth century.

This type of phenomenology, already apparent in Being and Time, gives a certain priority to what I call the praxical dimension of human existence, and it continues to be a key to the later work on technology. It is my conviction that Heidegger' s philosophy of technology is one of the most penetrating to date. By examining the ontological grounds of 28 technics, Heidegger has begun to lift technology out of its subjectivistic and merely instrumentalist interpretations and made of it a primary philosophical question.
