Faust's and Heidegger's Technology: Building as Poiesis

Show Summary Details


This chapter continues the analysis established in the previous chapter, and connects it to Heidegger's views of “modern technology” as Berman used it. It reveals that this “technology” as applied to literature, rather than a body or an idea, embodies the break with bodies, which makes it“always new”, especially with application of sensory systems with cognitive communication.

Keywords: Heidegger; technology in literature; Faust; Marshall Bernan

Chapter.  3268 words.
