Technologies of Critique

This chapter talks about the conception of critique referred in the third paragraph of Martin Heidegger's Being and Time. It describes how Heidegger precipitates the demands for critique and crisis in terms of the totality of entities that can become a field for laying bare and delimiting certain definite areas of subject matter. The area, such as, history, nature, space, life, and Daseincan serve as objects which corresponding scientific investigations may take as themes. Scientific research accomplishes the demarcation and initial fixing of the areas of subject matter. The chapter discusses Heidegger's writings on the naivety of positive scientific research that gravitates around the fact that its effective scrutiny of a field of objects that are generically determined by a basic concept neglects what is imposed on it behind its back as an unrecognized preconcept.

Keywords:   critique, Martin Heidegger, Being and Time, crisis, Daseincan, preconcept
