Abstract

This chapter examines Georg Luk√°cs's theory of "reification" and proposes a reformulation in terms of the impossibility of subjects to appropriate the social practices in which they participate. Based on this reformulation, a plausible conception of the role of technology in reification processes becomes available which connects to both the critique of technology in the Frankfurt School and (in a more limited sense) in Heidegger
