This paper considers the question of technology. The starting point is M. Heidegger, who did not see technology as a handy tool, but as a way of uncovering the world and revealing the greatest danger for man. Then Marcuse’s notion about technology is taken into account. H. Marcuse was perhaps one of the first to see technology as the new ontology, but he was also one of the first who was extremely sceptical and critical towards the relationship between technology and man, although he ultimately remained a romantic. Lastly, H. Jonas is taken into account who, as a witness to the negative experience of technology’s ultimate possibility, states the ethical imperative for the technological civilisation: there must be life.
