“For Martin Heidegger broadly, the question of being formed the essence of his philosophical inquiry. In The Question Concerning Technology (Die Frage nach der Technik), Heidegger sustains this inquiry, but turns to the particular phenomenon of technology, seeking to derive the essence of technology and humanity’s role of being with it. Heidegger originally published the text in 1954, in Vorträge und Aufsätze.
The Question Concerning Technology was originally named The Framework and first presented on December 1, 1949, in Bremen. It was at this time presented as the second of four lectures, collectively called ‘Insight into what is’. The other lectures were titled ‘The Thing’, ‘The Danger’, and ‘The Turning’.” (from Wikipedia)
