Books, “Ernst Jünger, the face of technology” comes out

-

“It might seem counterintuitive to speak of a face of technology. To it we associate much more easily the idea of ​​a mask, of a concealment, if not of a falsification”. On the contrary, “the face can be understood as the expression of human eccentricity, of its uniqueness, finally of its freedom”. “If the technique is acted out, this presupposes an agent, who can only be man, who creates the machine and directs its purposes. With some license, we could affirm that the secret face of the technique is what it refers to the man. In the same way as the Marinetti hero Mafarka who transmits his vital breath to his own metal son Gazurmah, in the machine there is always something of its builder: the technique is a human enterprise “. Michele Iozzino’s intent, in his essay Ernst Jünger – The face of technique (Altaforte Edizioni, 198 pages, 15 euros, online and in bookstores from May 19), is to start from this relationship between man, technique and what is human he has the technique to make it the keystone of the life and work of the German philosopher. From the Worker, passing through the Rebel to reach Anarca, the author crosses and analyzes the continuous confrontation / clash between man and technique, indicating which are the roads traveled by Jünger and which new paths are traced in the light of who as worker / soldier he first “passed through the woods” and then came to conquer new “authentic spaces of freedom within technology”. In other words, as Iozzino summarizes, providing “answers to the questioning of man by technology, so as to regain in comparison with it a properly human or, better said, superhuman dimension”. As we read in Luca Siniscalco’s precious preface, “returning to Jünger paradoxically means returning to our future, according to a conception, marked by the reversibility of time, which overcomes all determinism – be it linear or cyclical: back to the future” .
