“In other words, the stories, the results of action and speech, reveal an agent, but this agent is not the author or producer. Somebody began it and is its subject in the twofold sense of the word, namely, its actor and sufferer, but nobody is its author.” (p 184)

Unformatted text preview: “(T)he rule of Enframing, which demands that nature be orderable as standing reserve.” p 23 “History is neither simply the object of wriTen chronicle nor simply the fulFllment of human ac±vity.” (p 24) [²hink about this in terms of Arendt] Heidegger, p 23 “Because the essence of modern technology lies in Enframing, modern technology must employ exact physical science. Through its so doing, the decep±ve illusion arises that modern technology is applied physical science.” What does Heidegger mean by this? What else could technology be? Why does Heidegger think that Enframing is dangerous? What does a technology like networked computers (the internet) reveal? What are the standing reserves it calls upon? What is Heidegger’s ulTmate conclusion about what technology is and what it does? What consequences does this conclusion have for nature, and for humanity?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
