ACEVEDO GUERRA, Jorge. LA FRASE DE HEIDEGGER "LA CIENCIA NO PIENSA", EN EL CONTEXTO DE SU MEDITACIÓN SOBRE LA ERA TÉCNICA. Rev. filos. [online]. 2010, vol.66, pp.5-23. ISSN 0718-4360. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-43602010000100001.
In a brief initial presentation, I underline the importance of Heidegger's thoughts and its acknowledgement by renowned thinkers and scientists. Then, I refer to Heidegger's thesis "science does not think"from the book What Calls for Thinking? or What is Called Thinking? In order to clarify this sentence, I use his lecture "Science and Reflection". Possible explanations of the phrase in question are put aside, and I postulate that is better to think in another direction in order to better understand the thesis. This new direction introduces the difference between calculative thinking and reflection ("Besinnung, besinnliches Nachdenken: meditative thinking] and focuses on what Heidegger understands as: being, essence, sense, essence of modern technology (Ge-steW: enframing) and Fourfold (Geviert).
Keywords : Heidegger; science; age of technology; calculative thinking; reflection; sense; being, essence; Gestell; Fourfold.
