Jünger, Friedrich Georg: Die Perfektion der Technik
8., um ein Nachwort von Andreas Geyer vermehrte Auflage 2010
Friedrich Georg Jünger's ambitious essay Die Perfektion der Technik (written in 1939, but first published only after the war in 1946) is a classic of cultural criticism that has anticipated the modern debate on ecology and sustainability beyond all ideologies. Jünger's book was rightly granted equal status with other contemporaneous work of considerable influence, such as the Dialektik der Aufklärung (“The Dialectics of Enlightenment”) by Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno and Die Antiquiertheit des Menschen (“The Outdatedness of Human Beings”) by Günther Anders. Incidentally, the influence Jünger's thinking exerted on the late Martin Heidegger´s philosophy of technology is not to be underestimated. Ecology and environmental protection became "left-wing" topics in the 1970s, and though Jünger's book still acted on its readers, it gradually fell out of favor with a broader public. The perfection of technology today awaits its rediscovery; the detailed epilogue by Friedrich Georg Jünger´s biographer Andreas Geyer presents the book in its historical and intellectual context and shows its undiminished originality.
