By Trish Glazebrook

This booklet matters itself with a subject that's not sufficiently addressed within the literature: Heidegger's philosophy of technology. even though loads of consciousness is paid to Heidegger's later critique of expertise, nobody has systematically studied how he understood science.Many readers could be shocked to benefit, via this booklet, that Heidegger constructed the necessities of a pretty subtle philosophy of technology, person who in lots of methods invitations comparability with that of Thomas Kuhn. Glazebrook demonstrates that Heidegger's philosophy of technological know-how isn't really smartly divided into earlyand late(or Heidegger Iand Heidegger II) yet is, fairly, an ongoing improvement over at the very least 3 classes, sure jointly as an research of contemporary technological know-how and an uncovering of different chances for realizing nature. Glazebrook states in her advent, This analyzing of Heidegger is radical. It cuts to the basis of his pondering, for I argue that what are taken to be Heidegger's many and important contributions to philosophy-that is, his overcoming of metaphysics, his rereading of the ancients, his critique of know-how and representational pondering, his imaginative and prescient and revision of language, fact, and thinking-have at their center an inquiry into technology that drove his considering for sixty years. it's not that i am arguing for a brand new studying of some texts, or for changes and refinements of latest readings of Heideggger. fairly, i'm bringing to mild a brand new foundation on which to interpret his paintings as a whole.

Example text

To examine Heidegger's thesis that philosophy is itself a science, one must read that thesis against the background of Husserl's conception of rigorously scientific philosophy: phe­ nomenology. Joseph Kockelmans (1985) has given an extensive treatment of the Hegelian and Husserlian background against which Heidegger's thinking of science comes about. Rather than repeat that work, I will point only to the question of philosophy as rigorous science. Heidegger repudiates Husserl's epoche and prefers to make ontology central rather than bracket it.

Because it is a priori, a synthetic a priori judg­ ment "should bring forth something about the being which was not derived experientially from it" (KPM lO/KM 15). These three senses of "synthesis" are complicated by a further distinction of synthesis into three kinds: veritative, predicative, and apophantic (KPM 19/ KM 29). Veritative synthesis is a medi­ ation between thinking and its object by intuition which makes judgments true or evident and is recognizable as the second of the syntheses defined earlier.

The neo­ Kantian commitment to idealism is precisely the reverse in that idealism puts human consciousness at the center of all that is known.
