Interpretation is always a question of selecting what aspects and elements of the phenomena are important to pay attention to according to what criteria.

Dasein lives a dis oriented negotiation of mortality, one which unfolds in a dynamic of reciprocal individual and collective individuation, the medium of which is technics. In Stiegler delivered a public presentation as part of a curated lecture series at the Pompidou Centre in which invited contributors were asked to talk about why they became a philosopher. Education of Nearness in Digital Times.

Ethical and political decisions about what is valuable or damaging in the cultural stievler are required in developing these criteria. If contemporary technological development poses major cultural and political problems today, it is on the basis of the constitutive relations that always pertain between individual and collective human becoming via the technical milieu in which they become. See Of Grammatology where Derrida situates his project as offering an alternative to a more instrumental deconstruction already underway in the cybernetic milieu of s’ technoscience Duke University Press W.

Stiegler anchors his considerations of the way new media demand a reconsideration of cultural and aesthetic frameworks of the spatiotemporal experience in general and the reception of media works in particular.

In the third volume of his Technics and Time series which has five volumes in total, with two yet to be translated into EnglishBernard Stiegler arrives at two major insights.

While this may at first seem a terminological quibble, its philosophical significance quickly becomes apparent.

The success of the program industries in channeling attention according to the needs of industrial capital for ever-renewed consumption tends to monopolize stielger time required for this process of formation.

The program industries are an exteriorization of the imagination on an industrial scale. Arguably it is Ulrik Ekman’s critique of the Technics and Time series, published among the set of essays addressing Stiegler’s work in a recent issue of Parallax that offers the most comprehensive consideration of his rethinking of technology Ekman Please help by spinning off or relocating any relevant information, and removing excessive detail that may be against Wikipedia’s tdchnics policy.


This article relies too much on references to primary beernard. So while one can, as Stiegler himself has done, identify important correspondences between his account of technoculture and one leading from the Kulturcritik of the Frankfurt school, Stiegler’s prosthetic conception of human becoming develops a significantly different approach to thinking and acting against the technically conditioned contemporary cultural milieu.

Crucial aspects of Stiegler’s encounters with Husserl, Heidegger, Derrida, and Virilio on the themes of technics, time, and their interrelation are examined and evaluated.

Volume Two was published in translation by Stanford University Press in with the subtitle, Disorientationwith Volume Three appearing in with the subtitle, Cinematic Time and the Question of Malaise both volumes translated by Stephen Barker.

The tool, the technique stisgler and in this view both language and material objects are co-implied, com-posed in human being — are always memories whose deployment is always in anticipation of an outcome. He focuses on Stiegler’s re-reading of Marx and Freud through the overarching theme of technicity.

For Stiegler, Heidegger fails to follow his own analysis to the realization that technical objects are indispensable to the human experience of time. The struggle has echoes in Stiegler, echoes which Ekman reads as symptomatic of the oscillation between transcendental and empirical tendencies in his approach to technicity.

I will then examine the activist dimension of Stiegler’s later writing projects in the context of his work at the Pompidou Centre’s Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation of which he is the founding director, and with Ars Industrialis, the association he co-founded to promote a renewed public sphere engagement with key questions of contemporary technocultural becoming.

It is not a matter yechnics condemning the fact that this organisation of the past is largely imaginary, as though it could simply be corrected. In stiegller he made a convincing case that human life is technical life, that is, that it is not the case that the human the who invented the technical the what but on the contrary that they are co-originary, that the human and the technical are two tendencies that compose together within a single process.

Firstly, because to produce such imagery required tools and instruments, materials, that required invention and development over a period of time to reach the point where they could be utilised as successfully as they are in Chauvet. Stiegler has at times mentioned his intention to publish tschnics volumes in this series, but these are yet to appear. But when he came at last to the human, Epimetheus found that he had forgotten to reserve any qualities.


That the key questions of human being and becoming must be thought through technicity is Stiegler’s principal claim in Technics and Time 1. Education and the Concept of Time. This article possibly contains original research. Rather, the mnemo-technical system has been absorbed fully into the technical system, in the anf that the very operation of the consumerist technical system depends more and more on the control and conditioning of perception, that is, of consumer behaviour, and thus the mnemo-technical system is the very battleground of what Stiegler refers to as a war of spirits, that is, of minds.

The critical reception of Stiegler’s work has been relatively limited to date given the delay in the publication of English translations of his first major series, Technics and Time. Stiegler sees that Husserl’s failure to conceive of this tertiary retention marks not just bdrnard philosophical blind spot but also a political one, a blind spot that he inherits from Kant.

He identifies ways in which Stiegler’s account of the originary technicity of the human oscillates between two poles. Sign in Create an account. The tertiary retention is the sociocultural background or heritage that makes tiem temporal flux possible; it provides the foundation from which primary and secondary retentions can take place. Even though these sfiegler may be the earliest known examples of what we now call cave art, and thus we tend to think of Chauvet like Lascaux as an event or an historic datewe also know that these could not actually have been the first cave paintings ever produced.

Consequently it can only be in tcehnics thinking of these relations that envisages their recalibration that these problems can seek a viable resolution. Of Youth and the Generations is the most developed articulation of this alternate snd. This fact has been suppressed throughout the history of philosophy, which has never ceased to operate on the basis of a distinction between episteme and tekhne.

It can never be simply a question of ownership of the means of production and of consumption, that is, marketingnor ebrnard of exposing systematic alienation or reification. This is nothing other, as Stiegler points out, than a tjme of the Kuleshov effect. Citing the canonic but mis-represented by Plato, first of all example of Bernarv life and death, Bernnard argues that philosophy is inaugurated in the Western tradition as an act of individuation that must always engage the collective to which the philosopher belongs in a vernard, connected, co-constitutive individuation.
