Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
Essence of technology
Victor seems like a god figure who makes something from nothing
The monster can’t be a machine
Heidegger: the essence of technology is nothing technological
But this is where people will look
He believes technology is a type of background
Technology is a background where revealing occurs
Thee revealing is an ordering
Our work is an ordering revealing; this is how we bring things forward into appearance
Victor gathers the pieces of the body, it is not a revived dead body, but something made by
pieces
He was shocked as an artist, which is linked to technê/ poetic making
Technology is ordered and put together
You are in control of whole process of making beginning to end
You put pieces together into a framework
Background already has electricity
The things you need to create are already in the background
This is enframing/gestell
This is a verb, this place is there in action, not a passive place in the background, it is active, it is
addressing us
We always find ourselves in destiny
Goes against our idea of autonomy, this idea is illusory for him
Book of nature: being able to understand nature, nature is like a book, I can read its laws and
understand its laws, part of natural philosophy
This refers to bringing forth or technê
This is the ancient Greek view and there has been a major paradigm shift into technology
Now we attempt a mastery of nature, there is more equality between us and nature
