Constellating technology

Heidegger's die Gefahr/the danger

Babette Babich

pp. 153-182

Heidegger's question concerning technology was originally posed in lectures to the Club of Bremen. This essay considers the totalizing role of technology in Heidegger's day and our own, including a discussion of radio and calling for a greater integration of Heidegger's thinking and critical theory. Today's media context and the increasing ecological pressures of our time may provide a way to think, once again, the related notions of event [Ereignis] and ownedness [Eigentlichkeit].
