most of the people in first world countries seem to conform to new technologies as they are invented. His solution to the danger of enframing is the unfolding of the essence of modern technology. This in and of it self is far too abstract for my tastes. I work better with specific solutions that can be accomplished with hard work and do not require too much thought. Heidegger’s solution leaves me questioning how exactly I would be able to unfold the essence of modern technology. I think I adapt to new technology better than 931771967

most people, which makes me fail to see how I can complete his resolution. This is why I find Heidegger’s solution to the danger of technology insufficient. Although Heidegger is certainly not the most blunt philosopher, there are some things to be taken away from him. He forces us to look at technology on a deeper level until we see how it affects our lives, as well as the world. He seems to say that technology is getting a free relationship with essence, because devices themselves really are not the problem. He also says that technology is not the problem, it is just that we do not look at the essence deep enough. I agree with him that the danger of enframing is essentially keeping up with modern technology. The problem is that I feel like a large majority of America has already done this. In that respect I would say that Heidegger is nearly correct in his arguments, though some may be outdated and not applicable. Martin Heidegger’s philosophy about technology presents a lot of focal points, and I agree with a vast majority of them. Word Count: 1079 931771967

    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.
