From Techno-Hypnosis to Orgies of Activism: On the Nihilism of Technology & the Technologies of Nihilism
Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin
According to Dr Nolen Gertz, Assistant Professor of Applied Philosophy, there is a tendency in technological production called the ‘leisure-as-liberation’ model of technological design. In this lecture he will outline how it has evolved from Aristotle to Marx, to today.
In addition, Gertz aims to demonstrate how Nietzsche would criticise the idea that we could find liberation through leisure and will introduce Don Ihde’s post-phenomenology in order to set up parallels between Nietzsche’s human-nihilism relations and Ihde’s human-technology relations.
How can technologies mediate nihilism and how can nihilism mediate technologies? Dr Gertz will reflect on how rehabilitating the concept of responsibility can help us to move away from this nihilistic leisure-as-liberation model of technological design.
