Citing articles via Google Scholar. He identifies ways in which Stiegler’s account of the originary technicity of the human oscillates between two poles. Marx ultimately resorted to articulating the relations of stieyler with the means of production through a dynamic ruled by the contest for ownership.

He argues the need for collective, political action to cause a re focusing of brnard attention on the erosion of the circuits and practices of attention paid to the task of forming the attention of younger generations.

Stiegler’s point is that, while it is in general nothing new that a pre-selection operates via technical means in factically given contexts to condition the individual’s experience of events, the production under these conditions of the experience and consequently the memory of events for the goal of producing surplus value for a global capitalist system is new.

Technics and Time, 3: Cinematic Time and the Question of Malaise

The Fault of Epimetheus was followed by Tome 2: Contact Contact Us Help. Human and technics compose together a dynamic of mutual becoming. Cinema is the key multiplier of this phase, one which is discussed here but taken up in more detail in Technics and Time 3. The weakening of a collective negotiation of orienting symbolic production corresponds for Stiegler with the era of consumerism. In La Technique et Le Temps 3, Stiegler insists on the centrality of the question of tertiary retention as the essential supplement of consciousness.


See Of Grammatology where Derrida situates his project as offering an alternative to a more instrumental deconstruction already underway in the cybernetic milieu of s’ technoscience Whereas for Kant technology could only ever represent an application of scientific understanding, Stiegler shows that this means Kant is fundamentally incapable of thinking invention, that is, the creation of the new, and thus that he cannot be of any use in understanding technoscience, which subordinates science to technology, timr thereby transforms science as that which makes possibilities that are then selected technically and according to the imperatives of investment.

We know this for two reasons.

Anna Kouppanou – – Educational Philosophy and Theory 47 Stieg,er psychique et collective: Cultural Politics 1 July ; 6 2: Thus it is that every technical object is a form of memory, an exteriorisation of the consciousness that fashioned it, capable of being re-examined by that consciousness, or examined by his or her descendants, both intergenerationally and archaeologically.

In the third volume of his Technics and Time series which has five volumes in total, with two yet to be translated into EnglishBernard Stiegler arrives at two major insights.

Although we have these mysteriously maintained images, we have no idea of the myths or rituals—that is, the forms of knowledge and ways of life—that may have been woven around them.

I will then examine the activist dimension of Stiegler’s later writing projects in the context of his work at the Pompidou Centre’s Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation of which he is the founding director, and with Ars Industrialis, the association he co-founded to promote a renewed public sphere engagement with key questions of contemporary technocultural becoming.


In this sense, every technical object, every tool or artefact, is a mirror, or a screen. This is firstly a matter of thinking the changing place of schools, those institutions largely invented in the nineteenth century and through which, democratically, knowledge could be brought to that large collective individuation process we call the nation, thus organising the adoption process for what are called the industrial democracies, an adoption process operating through the mnemo-technical system of that epoch, that is, largely, through the printed word.

The issue also presents some material concerning another of Stiegler’s central inspirations, Gilbert Simondon. Mark Hansen mobilizes Stiegler as an important contributor to his efforts to develop tome models for better approaching new media and how they recast spatiotemporality today Hansen With the development of technology, media objects begin to monopolize the tertiary retention and to eliminate the possibility of the formation of what Stiegler calls a “We.

What amounts to a tendency toward a technological determinist position is discernible, he argues, in Stiegler’s selective adoption of Marxist political economy and Freudian accounts of desire and the unconscious. Simondon develops a schematic but breathtakingly ambitious and thought-provoking hypothesis about the passage and pitfalls of human progress from ancient through to contemporary times as a succession of overlapping and interrelated concretizations; from linguistic to religious to technological.

It insists, however, on the importance for any cultural critique or political intervention today of thinking of criticality, indeed of intelligence itself, as historical.
