The phenomenon of technique in the philosophy of M. Heidegger


The phenomenon of technique in the philosophical concept of M. Heidegger is studied. Special attention is paid to the existential meaning of technique. The German thinker revises the traditional approaches to this problem, mainly reveals the shortcomings of the instrumentalist interpretation. The dual nature of technique is considered: as a way of human existence and as a danger of oblivion of being. The conclusion is made about the peculiarities of M. Heidegger’s attitude to technique, his identification of the paradoxical philosophical interpretation of the essence of technique.
