Wir sind unsere Werkzeuge

Forscher weisen Martin Heideggers Aussage experimentell nach: Wir sind unsere Werkzeuge.

Chemero’s experiment, published March 9 in Public Library of Science, was designed to test one of Heidegger’s fundamental concepts: that people don’t notice familiar, functional tools, but instead „see through“ them to a task at hand, for precisely the same reasons that one doesn’t think of one’s fingers while tying shoelaces. The tools are us.
