Technics and Time, 3: Cinematic Time and the Question of Malaise

The third volume of the Technics and Time series opens with the following claim: Ben Roberts works at a careful examination of Stiegler’s relationship to Heidegger and Derrida’s work Roberts This correlation is an economic one based on the speed which is definitive of information as such; old information is not, in economic or technical terms, information any more.

Whereas for Kant technology could only ever represent an application of scientific understanding, Stiegler shows that this means Kant is fundamentally incapable of thinking invention, that is, the creation of the new, and thus that he cannot be of any use in understanding technoscience, which subordinates science to technology, and thereby transforms science as that which makes possibilities that are then selected technically and according to the imperatives of investment.

Work on an English translation of L’individuation psychique et collective: In doing so, science abandons its former territory and becomes a thoroughly political site where we determine what counts as our heritage—or where our tertiary retention is forged.

Bernard Stiegler, Technics and Time, 3: This is his first major enterprise and provides the theoretical underpinnings for subsequent publications and activities. Rather than tarrying in the undecideable impossibility haunting critical engagement, or the thought of an unthinkable future, or pursuing a fascinated tracing of autonomous technical poesis toward a hopefully non-threatening co-existence, Stiegler’s past has led him to pursue a cultural and increasingly political questioning of the adoption and redoubling of technical becoming.

Stiegler associates Heidegger’s decision to align himself with Nazism, and his inability to complete the project begun by Being and Timewith his failure to pursue the consequences of his thinking of facticity politically or philosophically in his life and work Stiegler Of Youth and the Generations is the technifs developed articulation of this alternate program.


Selective adoption of the cultural and technical heritage is crucial, and always political, because the human is not guided by any essential nature to realize its inevitable destiny.

The general consequence of this extension of technoscience to all areas of knowledge, and the subordination of all forms of knowledge to the imperatives of investment, but an investment operating according to ever-decreasing scales of time thereby degrading to speculation rather than investment [3]is a crisis of knowledge itself, an anxiety and a loss of belief in the very idea of knowledge, that knowledge offers us a future.

Stiegler will go on to argue in Technics and Time 3against Kant, that these schemas are not transcendental, but historically and therefore factically conditioned Stiegler a: If Karl Marx was the first major thinker in the West to call for the analysis of technology as an autonomous, motor force of human development Stiegler Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.

Research Article July 01 This is not accidental. 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 Here is where Technics and Time, 3 transitions from philosophical exploration to cultural critique.

Time in Cognitive Development. Find it on Scholar. Thus it is that every technical object is a form of memory, an exteriorisation of the consciousness that fashioned it, capable of being re-examined by that consciousness, or examined by his or her descendants, both intergenerationally and archaeologically. 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.

The final chapter of Technics and Time 2 discusses the phonogram as a recording technology that is the first to exactly duplicate the experience of temporal duration. This tends to open up a dangerous vacuum in the exchanges between the individual and the collective. Although we have these mysteriously maintained images, we have no idea of the myths or rituals—that is, the forms of knowledge and ways of life—that may have been woven around them.

The inadequation of individuation means there is no common past, and yet we need to screen something of that inadequate past in order to project a common future, in order to believe in a future. Consequently, Stiegler argues elsewhere, technics never escaped determination as a means of human agency and object of political struggle in Marx’s political economy Stiegler b: The origin of the human here is in a default of origin: Hannah Spahn – – University of Virginia Press.

Like much of the critical force of the other work Stiegler is involved with, these engagements are built upon his unrelenting effort to bring technics back from the margins of the founding — and persisting — metaphysical framing of the questions stigeler being and becoming. James is able to show how Stiegler develops his position by composing insights from these thinkers in a critical recombination that focuses on the way that technicity plays a crucial if problematic role in each of their projects.

The Fault of Epimetheus French: Robin Small – – Continuum. He gives an account, not unlike that of Wills, of Stiegler’s thematization of the speed of technical objects and technical evolution at the center of his analysis of technical temporalization.

In it 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. Stiegler finds in the pre-Platonic, pre-metaphysical, tragic Greek myth of the origin of the human recounted in the Protagoras and else where a precise formulation of the paradoxical condition of human nature, one which seems today to be written across the various contradictions and crises presenting themselves in environmental, bioethical, and political domains Plato
