This chapter explores the philosophy of Heidegger, for whom the question of technology was central, and whose views typify a wide range of critical views. Heidegger sees technology as the ultimate outworking of Greek metaphysics, with Nietzsche as its ultimate ideologue. In technology, the world is subject to enframing by the goals of the technological project as the condition of its experienceability. This approach permeates the contemporary university, including the humanities. The poetry of Hölderlin, however, provides Heidegger with another perspective, one in which, in dialogue with the Pre-Socratics, we are invited to thinking as a radical counter-movement to technology.

Keywords:   Heidegger, technology, metaphysics, enframing, university, poetry, Hölderlin, pre-Socratics, thinking
