The Residue of Anthropocentrism in Heidegger’s Question after Technic

Description

In his text, The Question ConcerningTechnology, Heidegger argues that modern mind is unaware of Being’sself-destining which determines Dasein’s relation to their own essence and thatof other beings because it is in a delusion of being an ‘efficient cause’. Abluntness of this kind not only endangers human-freedom but also puts naturalentities at the risk of losing their authenticity since the modern mode ofproduction regards nature as a reserve that is constantly in the service ofhuman-doings. Accordingly, the discussion carried out in this article is,despite his criticism of the conception of ‘agency’ underlying westernmetaphysics, whether or not Heidegger overcomes the problem of anthropocentrismin his own philosophy.
