dc.description.abstractThe late Heidegger and Bernard Stiegler both assert that contemporary technics poses a threat to human existence as well as being in general. The present paper asks, in the face of this threat, how am I to be in order to remedy it? To answer the question, I compare a) the core assumptions regarding technics that lead both authors to the assertion of a threat, and b) the precise nature of the threat. The results of this comparison inform a Heideggerian critique of Stiegler’s account of human/technical being as based on an implicit notion of productivity; but ultimately, both author’s proposed remedies are reconciled into a single answer to the threat and a unified answer to the initial question.en_US
