Sample text

Such conception of error is foundational to Heidegger’s project in “The Question Concerning Technology,” where the antidote to the dumb obviousness of modern technology, the project of “gain(ing) a free relationship to the essence of modern technology,” is translated into the necessity of seeing such technology in terms of the wider “destining of Being” indicated by the transformation from Greek technology to its modern avatar (Heidegger 1977a, pp. 6–10). In other words, Heidegger equates “questioning” technology with seeing the limited “truth” of calculation in relationship to the broader horizon of poietic un-concealment, of which it is, nonetheless, an interpretation.

6 Even when we are attuned to our world, we miss our contribution to the constitution of worldhood. The world is “not” at least at one point, at the point for which it appears. Or, to use a language more in tune with Heidegger’s, with worldhood comes necessarily the danger of “falling” implicit when we pay attention to “the world” and ignore our own Dasein (Heidegger 1962, H. 221–222/p. 264). That is, the “concealment” here lies in the way questions of truth already are filtered through the “pair of glasses” actively producing our world-horizon.

On the other hand, his work demonstrates that precisely this question evades such resolution. We will always need a clear and definite answer to the question of how we should feel about the world ushered in by the modern subject. And we will never be able to respond to this imperative. Indeed, we should not cave into it. In the final analysis, we must take Žižek’s silence in this passage as containing his real answer to the “question concerning techno-captialism” – which is that the question should have priority over any answer, that any answer is necessarily false.
