Abstract
This thesis first provides an explication of Bernard Stiegler’s implicit critique of Martin Heidegger’s account of the independence entities. After accomplishing this explication, an explanation and justification of Stiegler’s theory of entities, in the form of technology, is given to see if it can provide a plausible account of entities that gives them their full significance of independence within a larger Heideggerian philosophical context. This explanation and justification consists of showing how, for Stiegler, the ontic and the ontological are in a relation of mutual constitution, and how this relation establishes the full significance of the independence of entities. Finally, Stiegler’s critique is evaluated as to the degree of its proper understanding and engagement with Heidegger’s project, and the philosophical merit of Stiegler’s larger project is also assessed.
