Overview

Today, Western thinking forms the techno-scientific apparatus of societies of hyper-control, built on the foundation of ubiquitous and reticular computing. This amounts to what Martin Heidegger called Gestell (enframing), which imposes itself as the digitalized merging of science and technology. In the epoch of data science, we find ourselves confronted forcefully (as what the Greeks called hubris) with the question of the status of technics with respect to knowledge in all its forms. It has thus become crucial to understand how and why from its very birth, with Plato, philosophy has made technics literally unthinkable, thereby establishing the unthought that then comes to constitute the threat of the Anthropocene.
