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.
