"The Question Concerning Technology" (German: Die Frage nach der Technik) is a work by Martin Heidegger seeking to derive the essence of technology and humanity’s role. Heidegger originally published the text in 1954, in Vorträge und Aufsätze.

It 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".[1]
