A Critical Examination of Heidegger’s Thoughts: Technology Places Humanity in Shackles Hindering Our Natural Thinking Process and Our Connection to Being

  •  Renee Pistone    


Technological advancements such as artificial intelligence have encroached upon humanity’s ability to think creatively. We rely on technical gadgets to add simple calculations and to retain listing and directories leading to memory loss. At times, we often cannot recall simple details and phone numbers since these things are all stored on our small hand-held computers. We must begin to consider how our technological advancements, in their many forms, are permeating our lives. As technology, especially computers, become increasingly smarter, we use our brains less resulting in a total surrender of our very lives to these gadgets. This marked and prolific worship of technology has separated us from our connection to our environment.
