Alain Robbe-Grillet on the glissement from science to technology.
It is true that science later becomes technology, and at that point, technology forgets the contradictions in order to use only the effectiveness. This slipping from science to technology is probably one of the weaknesses of Heidegger's thought because he is constantly condemning science while in reality it is technology or technique he attacks. It is impossible to separate one from the other. Going to the moon is a technology. It is a practical science or an applied science. Even at a level where it would seem that the imaginary predominates (going to the moon was dream of the nineteenth century), it is already a technology.
