Heidegger, Martin | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Heidegger applies this understanding of experience in later writings that are focused explicitly on technology, where he goes beyond the traditional view of technology as machines and technical procedures. He instead tries to think through the as a way in which we encounter entities generally, including nature, ourselves, and, indeed, everything. Heidegger’s most influential work on technology is the lecture “The Question Concerning Technology,” published in 1954, which was a revised version of part two of a four-part lecture series he delivered in Bremen in 1949 (his first public speaking appearance since the end of the war). These Bremen lectures have recently been , for the first time, by Andrew J. Mitchell.
Understanding Heidegger on Technology - The New …
Inaddition, after years of being out of fashion in France, existentialmotifs have once again become prominent in the work of leadingthinkers. Foucault's embrace of a certain concept of freedom, and hisexploration of the “care of the self,” recall debates withinexistentialism, as does Derrida's recent work on religion without Godand his reflections on the concepts of death, choice, andresponsibility. In very different ways, the books by Cooper (1999) andAlan Schrift (1995) suggest that a re-appraisal of the legacy ofexistentialism is an important agenda item of contemporaryphilosophy. Reynolds (2006), for instance, concludes his introductionto existentialism with a consideration of how post-structuralists suchas Derrida, Deleuze, and Foucault extend certain reflections found inSartre, Camus, and Heidegger, while Reynolds (2004) does the same, inmore detail for Derrida and Merleau-Ponty. If existentialism's verynotoriety as a cultural movement may have impeded its seriousphilosophical reception, then, it may be that what we have most tolearn from existentialism still lies before us.
'First published in German in 1984 as volume 45 of Martin Heidegger's collected works, this book translates a lecture course he presented at the University of Freiburg in 1937-1938. Heidegger here raises the question of the essence of truth, not as a "problem" or as a matter of "logic", but precisely as a genuine philosophical question, in fact the one basic question of philosophy. Thus, this course is about the intertwining of the essence of truth and the essence of philosophy. On both sides Heidegger draws extensively upon the ancient Greeks, on their understanding of truth as and their determination of the beginning of philosophy as the disposition of wonder. In addition, these lectures were presented at the time that Heidegger was composing his second magnum opus, , and provide the single best introduction to that complex and crucial text.'
Rorty, Richard | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
The study of Heidegger is both dangerous and difficult — the way he is taught today threatens to obscure his thought’s connection to his politics while at the same time transforming his work into fodder for the aimless curiosity of the academic industry. Heidegger would not be surprised to discover that he is now part of the problem that he meant to address. But if, as Heidegger hoped, his works are to help us understand the challenges technology presents, we must study him both carefully and cautiously — carefully, to appreciate the depth and complexity of his thought, and cautiously, in light of his association with the Nazis.

From 1936 through 1938 Heidegger wrote , a fugue on six themes important to the thinking that would fill his remaining decades. The Contributions was followed over the next six years by notebooks in which Heidegger elaborated on its themes. In this period Heidegger developed the concerns that would fill his essays and lectures after the war. This series of books remained private, and were first published after Heidegger's death, as part of his complete works. The second book in the series was translated as , and this is the third to be translated, on the theme of .

This book collects the three seminars (1966, 1968, 1969) Heidegger participated in at Le Thor, France, and the Zähringen seminar (1973), along with a couple ancillary papers. These are especially interesting because they are the last of Heidegger's "works", and because Heidegger is involved in thoughtful dialogue with others.
