We Need to Talk About Heidegger

Essays Situating Martin Heidegger in Contemporary Media Studies

Series:

Edited By Justin Michael Battin and German A. Duarte

This collection assembles a number of chapters engaging different strands of Martin Heidegger’s philosophy in order to explore issues relevant to contemporary media studies. Following the release of Heidegger’s controversial Black Notebooks and the subsequent calls to abandon the philosopher, this book seeks to demonstrate why Heidegger, rather than be pushed aside and shunned by media practitioners, ought to be embraced by and further incorporated into the discipline, as he offers unique and often innovative pathways to address, and ultimately understand, our daily engagements with media-related phenomena.

Heideggerian concepts: Sorge, Ereignis, das Gestell, Dasein, Equipmentality – Topology and Digital Narratives – Architecture and Spatial Constructions – Photography and Dwelling – Social Media – Mediality – Technology and Technical Media
