As Stiegler recounts it, neither Aristotle nor Kant could anticipate that science would break free from the realm of necessity and become the vehicle for the exploration of possibilities.

Human and technics compose together a dynamic of mutual becoming. Thus it is that every technical object is a form of memory, an exteriorisation of the consciousness that fashioned it, capable of being re-examined by that consciousness, or examined by his or her descendants, both intergenerationally and archaeologically.

L’individuation psychique et collective: The bridge is constructed through the enduring attention paid by Stiegler to the processes linking the artifactual exterior systems and the works they produce to the ongoing development of the interior, individual and shared, collective becoming of human being.

Technics and Time, 3: Cinematic Time and the Question of Malaise

The general consequence of this extension of technoscience to all areas of knowledge, and the subordination of all forms of knowledge to the imperatives of investment, but an investment operating according to ever-decreasing scales of time thereby degrading to speculation rather than investment [3]is a crisis of knowledge itself, an anxiety and a loss of belief in the very idea of knowledge, that knowledge offers us a future.

The Recovery of Techne. Learn how and when to remove these template messages. Citing the canonic but mis-represented by Plato, first of all example of Socrates’ life and death, Stiegler argues that philosophy is inaugurated in the Western tradition as an act of individuation that must always engage the collective to which the philosopher belongs in a corresponding, connected, co-constitutive individuation. Stiegler’s account is somewhat reductive in its failure to consider the Eurocentric delimitation of this program of adoption, readable in the complex of de facto and de jure exclusions of indigenous American, African, and Asiatic ethnicities from this program of national identity well into the twentieth century.


To Husserl’s primary and secondary retention, both interior to consciousness and defining the difference between present perception and the recollection of past presents, Stiegler insists on the prosthetic but no less crucial tertiary retention borne by exterior artifactuality.

Political responsibility lies in fostering the conjugation of the individual and the collective in a renewed technocultural program that counters the autoimmune tendency that threatens the very milieu of human becoming on a psychic, social, as well as environmental basis today.

This includes, and as a principal tendency, the erosion discussed above of the territory as ground of significant eventfulness. It is this which Stiegler insists has not been adequately thought in most critical accounts of technology and culture.

He situates his work in relation to the problematization of the conventional spectrum of left and right political positions and talks about how his more recent publishing and public activities proceed from his account of the necessity to invent a viable cultural program for inter-generational reengagement with the technical milieu beyond the widespread disenchantment with social and political processes.

Work on an English translation of L’individuation psychique et collective: The new possibilities that science discovers create a new inheritance that replaces even the natural world, as we see in the case of bioengineered agricultural products.

In fact these cultural presets comprise a dual synthesis negotiating between the technical synthesis of a dynamic ensemble of technological developments cross-fertilizing and crystallizing as a new technical set of possibilities, and the formation of an always metastable collective consensus about their use and significance.

The Mnemotechnics of Post Modernity. This environmental idiomatics of toxicity and pollutants resembles that of Neil Postman in Technopoly: Cinematic time — The cinema of consciousness — I and we: This special issue seeks to explore and extend Anglophone critical engagement with the cultural and political dimensions of Stiegler’s enterprise.

The weakening of a collective stisgler of orienting symbolic production corresponds for Stiegler with the era of consumerism. But in fact this is only a part of a deeper transformation, the transformation by which the distinction between science and technology is recomposed as technoscience.
