The Human in a Technological World


In my talk I take up the question of the human being in a technological world. Technoanthropological analysis of the human condition (confronted by authors with the “condition” of an autonomous robot) is based on selected texts of culture on the one hand, and on the other hand I refer to economic analysis and the latest achievements in the field of implementing automated solutions in the labour market. I begin my work by analysing the concepts used in the course of the study (which is also the title of the conference). In particular, I refer to the concept of technology (from Aristotle’s techne in ” Poetics”), and to the concept of mimetic art. Then I reflect on a paradigm shift in culture – a culture in which people live in an automated technical environment. The aim of the presentation is to outline the human situation in the world of post-homo faber.
