Example text

Taking up Heidegger’s reflections on technology, they argue that gaining a free relation to technology involves getting right what is most significant about human beings and the everyday things in our midst. ’’ Heidegger understood that modern technology is completely different and new, but had to struggle with the problem of how to formulate what was new and different about it, and the danger it represents. The real danger . . is not the destruction of nature or culture nor a selfindulgent consumerism, but a new totalizing style of practices that would restrict our openness to people and things by driving out all other styles of practice that enable us to be receptive to reality.

Notes 1 It goes without saying that naturalism is hegemonic in philosophy and in the culture of modernity. Of course neither naturalism nor non-naturalism consist of homogeneous positions; there is considerable variety on both sides, and the closer one gets to the borderline, more subtle differences and more hedging, too. 2 For various reasons, “romanticism” is not capitalized in this text. Depending on the context in which it appears the term can refer to the historical period or genre of art, literature, and philosophy, to a specific philosophical tradition, as in the case of “philosophical romanticism”, or, more generally, to a philosophical ethos or attitude.

In this tensed relation between old and new, the present, the time in which we now live, must become the special focus of our attention. It is not just that it lies at the point between an old world about to fade away and a new one about to emerge. Failure to be receptive to the present, attentively attuned to its hidden significance, would mean failure to get into the right normative relation to our own time. ’’ Meeting that obligation requires that we apprehend precisely those possibilities within the present upon whose realization the new form of the world depends.
