Does the human invent technology, or could it be the other way around?

An excellent deconstruction of the fault of humans, time and technology. Simondon sets out to conceive of a new place for the human in relation to the technical. But it is also a praxis that employs instruments, and hence in that way it remains a handling. Yet he fails to see in the instrument the originary and originarily-deficient horizon bernaard any discovery, any temporality, any futurity.
Dasein is improbable, that is, unprogrammable, incalculable, untranslatable. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page. In what would the logic of the orthographic supplement consist?

Robert Foschia rated it really liked it Mar 29, Mjhancock rated it really liked it Feb 25, This chapter examines this doubling-up in terms of: In other words, the tendency of the technical object towards the attainment of individuality lies in its passage from an abstract to a concrete phase, a passage overdetermined by functionality. Volume Two was published in translation by Stanford University Press in with the subtitle, Disorientation, with Volume Three appearing in with the subtitle, Cinematic Time and the Question of Malaise both volumes translated by Stephen Barker.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The dynamic process by which the computer has evolved is driven by the indetermination and flexibility of its functioning, not by any particular use conceived on its behalf. Technical objects, he argues, are inorganic organised beings, possessing their own dynamic, irreducible to either physics or biology.
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. Theories of technical evolution Bertrand Gille Gille formulates a synchronic principle for understanding the technical system, on the basis of which he intends to explain the diachrony of ruptures.
All this requires the entire setup of mnemo-technics, and is inscribed in the movement of the planets and the system of the seasons. Dasein projects its end as its end, thus its anticipation is the basis of its differentiation. Any interpretation must already have understood what is to be interpreted.

The tool invents the human, or the human invents himself by inventing the tool, through techno-logical exteriorisation. This article possibly contains original research.

Textualised ortho-graphically, what happens with the opening of the book of history ends up being more indeterminate, even though more certain. Nov 03, Casey Sutherland rated it it was amazing. The brain has a role, but not a directive role, being one element in the overall apparatus. For Heidegger, the fundamental phenomenon of time is the future, whereas measuring technicss is attempting to determine the indeterminate, hence a form of evading the end.
Working his way through the history of the Aristotelian assessment of technics, the author engages the ideas of a wide range of thinkers—Rousseau, Husserl, and Heidegger, the paleo-ontologist Leroi-Gourhan, the anthropologists Vernant and Detienne, the sociologists Weber and Habermas, and the systems analysts Maturana and Varela.
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 Beernard. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Thus the aporia found in Rousseau is shifted to a second origin.
Programming as overall planification is the specific feature of modern technics, effecting a rupture in technical evolution. But what is knowledge if it is transformable in this way? Kristupas Sabolius rated it really liked it Aug 17, The customer reviews at Amazon seemed to indicate this book is a stieyler of time.
If the lithic tool enables a type of anticipation, it does so on the basis of the memory of an already-there, a past that is mine but that I have nevertheless not lived. But if this is the relation between technicity and tradition, does that mean ethnicity co-originates with technicity or is merely one modality of an essentially deterritorialisable idiomatic difference?
The power that emerged from this new relation was unleashed in the course of the two world wars. Lacking prescience, it implies credulity, the potential for blind hope in the face of deathless foresight than an antidote to foresight. But if this is the case for an individual technical object such as a computer, then this dynamic can play itself out only in relation to the individuation of the technical system as a whole into which particular objects, such as the computer, have been inserted.
