Heidegger's Politics of Enframing examines the controversial political choices made by Heidegger, the one-time Nazi party member, and articulates a direct connection between his troubling political decisions and his late thoughts on technology. This book looks at the evolution of Heidegger's understanding of human politics, viewed through the lens of his ontological articulations from the early 1930's to the end of his life, with a deep focus on the role that Nietzsche plays in Heidegger's understanding of technology and the technological. The key question within Heidegger's thoughts on technology is whether Heidegger is proposing a sense of responsibility, and therefore an ethics, in his notion of a technological "saving power." Cardoza-Kon develops an understanding of what the political ramifications of this are, and what can we take from Heidegger's thought today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unlike many scholars who have written on Heidegger, Cardoza-Kon brings to his discussion a deep knowledge of the intricate and subtle connections between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics. This book will put to rest any doubts that Heidegger's critique of western metaphysics is related to his far-right politics.
In Heidegger's Politics of Enframing: Technology and Responsibility Javier Cardoza-Kon examines the political and ethical dimensions of Martin Heidegger's late period. Utilizing an unorthodox approach, Cardoza-Kon articulates a two-tiered political structure that underlies the late Heidegger's thoughts on technology and constitutes the possibility of ethical life in the face of technological saturation.
Javier Cardoza-Kon offers a clear, patient, and insightful account of the relation between Heidegger's politics and his philosophy. Cardoza-Kon's explanation of how concrete political action is shaped by certain metaphysical assumptions is particularly illuminating, and his lucid overview of Heidegger's thought from Being and Time to The Question Concerning Technology will be helpful to readers who are approaching Heidegger's overtly political writings (and Heidegger's decision to join the Nazis) for the first time. Finally, Cardoza-Kon's application of Heidegger's philosophy to our current use of internet technology indicates the importance of Heidegger's thought in an increasingly digitized world.
