Description


This book presents a new and radical interpretation of some of Martin Heidegger's most influential texts. The unfamiliar interpretations all seek to question and unframe hasty assessments of the concepts and constellations of thoughts surrounding Heidegger's notion of modern technology. Heidegger's impressive work still hides many treasures and strange thoughts giving original insights into the rise of biotechnology, transgressions between art and technology and the writing of Western history. By way of surprising thought experiments, critical questioning, allusions and systematic conclusions, this book presents Heidegger's thoughts on technology in a way that not only shows his importance for philosophy and modern society, but also identifies his shortcomings and uses his original thoughts and concepts against him.
