Heidegger and the Conception of Technology as Fate

Abstract

Heidegger understands technology as a mode of revealing, i.e., a way of discovering and comprehending reality, which is not merely the result of human invention and operation, but rather a destiny which sur-passes and addresses the human being, insofar as its root lay deep in the very advent of philosophy, of the West and its position toward being as a whole. How can we still have interest in such ontological con-ception of technology as a destiny? What is its topical relevance for the present? What is its contribution to thinking the transformative action of technology, i.e., the opportunity and threat it brings with it?
