Bernard Stiegler's Philosophy of Technology: Invention, Decision, and Education in Times of Digitization
Kouppanou, Anna
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v47 n10 p1110-1123 2015
Bernard Stiegler's concept of individuation suggests that the human being is co-constituted with technology. Technology precedes the individual in the respect that the latter is thrown in a technological world that always already contains externally inscribed memories--what he calls tertiary memories--that selectively form the individual and the collective space of the community. Revisiting Husserlian phenomenology, Stiegler renews the critique of culture industries asserting that imagination and differance have always been technologically mediated, and echoing the Heideggerian anxiety concerning thinking's over-determination, Stiegler offers an intriguing analysis of the specificity of our age's technologies while exploring the possibility for political responsibility and educational intervention.
