What is a technical object? At the beginning of Western philosophy, Aristotle contrasted beings formed by nature, which bernnard within themselves a beginning of movement and rest, and man-made objects, which did not have the source anf their own production within themselves.
This book, the first of three volumes, revises the Aristotelian argument and develops an innovative asse What is a technical object? This book, the first of three volumes, revises the Aristotelian argument and develops an innovative assessment whereby the technical object can be seen as having an essential, distinct temporality and dynamics of its own. The Aristotelian concept persisted, in one form or another, until Marx, who conceived of the possibility of an evolution of technics.
Lodged between mechanics and biology, a technical entity became a complex of heterogeneous forces. In a parallel development, while industrialization was in the process of overthrowing the contemporary order of knowledge as well as contemporary social organization, technology was acquiring a new place in philosophical questioning.
Philosophy was for the first time faced with a world in which technical expansion was so widespread that science was becoming more and more subject to the field of instrumentality, with its ends determined by the imperatives of economic struggle or war, and with its epistemic status changing accordingly.
The power that emerged from this new relation was unleashed in the course of the two world wars. Working his way through the history of the Aristotelian assessment of technics, the author engages the ideas of a wide range of gime, Husserl, tie Heidegger, the paleo-ontologist Leroi-Gourhan, the anthropologists Vernant and Detienne, the sociologists Weber and Habermas, and the systems analysts Maturana and Varela.

Technics and Time, 1: The Fault of Epimetheus
The customer reviews at Amazon seemed to indicate this book is a waste of time. I can’t tell you how eager I am to waste my time with it. What interests me most, off hand, is the author’s return to the work of Andre Leroi-Gourhan, someone I don’t believe anyone has touched since Derrida in Of Grammatology.
Dec 10, Lynn rated it liked it. I love that this book attempts to address the role of technology in social change by considering the way in which humans were always-already in need of “prosthetics.
Sep 23, Andrew added it Shelves: In our Internet age, we seem to constantly be asking, in editorials, in think pieces, in blogs, about the degree to which technology has its own logic. Bernar are those who believe that it develops independently of the human endeavor, and those who believe it to beenard a strictly human invention.
These two camps roughly, but not universally, correspond to the parties who believe technology to dictate human behavior, and those who believe the opposite, respectively. Stiegler develops an interesting sor In our Internet age, we seem to constantly be asking, in editorials, in think pieces, in blogs, about the degree to which technology has its own logic.
Stiegler develops an brenard sort of middle path in the first part of this first volume, drawing heavily from sgiegler full scope of human history, and especially on the archaeological research of Leroi-Gourhan. While the second part– a meditation on dasein adn turned me off, largely because I just lacked the intimate knowledge of Heidegger to really feel I could understand it, the first part of this treatise bernwrd fascinating.
If you have any interest at all in why you can’t stop playing Candy Crush, give it a read.
Bernagd 03, Luke Echo rated it liked it. The argument about the problem with a Second Origin of the “human” is quite good: The Critique of Rousseau and that line of thought that posits an un-corrupted humanity. The later sections which critique Heidegger – his attempt to place techne prior to Dasein was more difficult to grasp hold of. Jan 05, Leonard Houx rated it really liked it Shelves: The second part is the really critical bit, where he presents a brilliant reading and critique of Heidegger–arguing that tme is essentially technological, i.
Although this was far from an easy read and the initial chapters feel like stuffing, this is one of the few books I have read lately where I felt like Tedhnics was really being told something radical and new.
