Martin Heidegger

It is a wheel that traps us. We do not know how, because we do not stop to think about the way we live. The speed of how everything happens, so no we know it and into an inertia that makes it work on its own this gear, which is very difficult to escape. Somehow a Power, as Foucault would say, is built, and we are building from within, so that we get caught in it. And not only repressive, but it produces, but not only consumption, but hurry. a Thus, while public goods are privatized, we are not citizens to become customers, both products, as political parties or cultural events. For lack of time affects our communication with the world and our way of being. Time is also built and their experience today has much to do with technique.

In "Being and Time" Martin Heidegger discusses this topic. When he reflects about the time begins to emerge as a social problem. Today we live in full swing. For this reason, their words become very topical. For the existentialist philosopher "being is time, as the sense of being in time." And it relates to art, which, he says, is nothing technical, but makes it happen without a debate, without a thought.

The result is the subordination of the individual to the technique, which is the setting the pace of life. Think we are now at the dawn of a new social dimension. We can realize the phenomenon of the rush, but the great debate on scientific developments take place without political expression, without being able to place their results from the social and political thought. Issues like cloning, GM agriculture, or new forms of energy must be known and reasoning development. For Heidegger time is presented to consciousness as empty intuition, so time is shown. There comes a time when the time function takes possession of being. It's like a racehorse, there comes a time when the animal loses its meaning, to run as its own and becomes a commodity, an object. In the same way modern people lose the ability to be subjects, and we became objects of an economic world dominated and defined us. The cure for this situation may resemble what the philosopher to whom we referred calls "seasonal temporality, in a phenomenological sense, which means that the struggle for freedom and exercise should be accompanied by a deeper and necessary which is to be free In this process becomes highly illustrated the capacity to become aware of our time and control our pace, before we continue to dominate us, from which comes the ena become objects of a global market, being gears of a moving production to consumption gives us so that we transformed into objects of the economy, just as fans are of their religious or political ideologies.
