Since the beggining of this semester, I could not help myself on making connections between the different courses I’m taking and the Systems, Sites and buildings class. Last week, while reviewing for my theory midterm I was struck by a passage in a Heiddegger text.
On page 296 of his essay, Heidegger asks the question of what is Modern Technology.
« The revealing that rules in modern technology is a challenging, which puts to nature the unreasonable demand that it supply energy which can be extracted and stored as such. » (Heidegger, 296)
