ALVAREZ, Nathalia Andrea. Heidegger: Sense-Nonsense Dualism of Man in Technology Dimensions. Civilizar [online]. 2008, vol.8, n.15, pp.149-162. ISSN 1657-8953.

This article tries to analyze the ontological-existential compromise that man acquires when using new technologies, in the light of the Heideggerian' proposal. This compromise means, on the one hand, the responsibility of forgetting the self in technology, which immerses man in a non-sense; and on the other, the will to open himself to the recognition of the ways in which his "being-in-the-world" manifests. To this end, the perils of technological "instrumentalization" will be presented, based upon the Heideggerian explanation about the essence of technology. We will present the Heideggerian concepts of anxiety1 and nothingness concepts, with which we will try to conduct the postmodern man towards the encounter with his original sense.

Palavras-chave : Technology; human being; man; sense; non-sense; anxiety; nothingness.
