Untitled[edit]

Heidegger never in fact mentions a "water wheel" in the essay. He does contrast modern power generation with a "windmill", however, so I have edited accordingly. 18.85.23.189 (talk) 15:44, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

I suggest a section concerning Heidegger's essay The Turning from the same volume be added to this entry. It elucidates many of the issues in The Question Concerning Technology. Also some secondary sources might be helpful, which shouldn't be hard to find. Perhaps the rating should be changed to be of higher importance, because this book is influential and frequently studied to the best of my knowledge. --68.3.68.102 (talk) 19:15, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Other readings of The Question Concerning Technology, as well as my own understanding, suggest that enframing endangers the revealing of things by turning them into resources. The article as it stands has almost the opposite sentiment to anything else I've read! 110.174.140.57 (talk) 07:29, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I concur. This article not only needs a rewrite to make it more encyclopedic, but also in terms of correcting it's content. As it is, it's interpretation of Heidegger is wildly inaccurate. Cuthalion1 (talk) 18:52, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm removing large quantities of original research from the article, as agreed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Question Concerning Technology. Concerned editors should feel free to build up the article using reliable secondary sources. - LuckyLouie (talk) 14:47, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
