Heidegger's Confrontation with Modernity: Technology, Politics, and Art
by Zimmerman, Michael E (1990)
The relation between Martin Heidegger's understanding of technology and his affiliation with and conception of National Socialism is the leading idea of this fascinating and revealing book. Zimmerman shows that the key to the relation between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics was his concern with the nature of working and production.
Heidegger maintained, by way of contrast, that humanity has been transformed into the worker because today "to be" means "to be worked upon and transformed in accordance with the imperative of production for its own sake." (p.82)
