Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Heidegger's philosophy of science in relation to the inversion to the primacy of technology. It first describes the time warps that relate to the ways in which figures change in relation to their fields or contexts. Then it moves to the rereading of Heidegger where the discussion attempts to recontextualize Heidegger with respect to very large historic changes, first with respect to philosophy of science and science itself, then with respect to the science-technology relation, or technoscience. The chapter asks: was Heidegger prescient concerning technoscience?
