Nietzsche: Volumes One and Two
by Heidegger, Martin (1991)
A landmark discussion between two great thinkers, vital to an understanding of twentieth-century philosophy and intellectual history.
If man tries to win a foothold and establish himself among the beings (physis) to which he is exposed, if he proceeds to master beings in this or that way, then his advance against beings is borne and guided by a knowledge of them. Such knowledge is called techne. From the very outset the word is not, and never is, the designation of a "making" and a producing; rather, it designates that knowledge which supports and conducts every human irruption into the midst of beings. (p.81)
