Reflections on Answering Martin Heideggers Critique of Technological Thought/Calculative Thought

Martin Heideggers critique is a critique of:
1) Utilitarianism/Consequentialism
2) Scientific thought

Some people say technological thought….but whether or not technology good is an impact turn is perhaps up for debate.

Its important to note that Heideggers work had major influence on Anthro/Deep Eco authors….and I think if you want to impact turn it….you could arguably go there.

However, at a fundamental level…..dealing with the utility/consequentialism (aka calculative thought) component is key to everything else.

You might also check your Humanism/Spanos answers…there could possibly be some overlap.
