The New Mirror: The Influence of Technology on the Psychological Theory and Clinical Practice at IPTAR

IPTAR PRESENTS: THE NEW MIRROR: The Influence of Technology on the Psychological Theory and Clinical Practice

“Because the essence of technology is nothing technological, essential reflection upon technology and decisive confrontation with it must happen in a realm that is, on the one hand, akin to the essence of technology and, on the other hand, fundamentally different from it.”
— Martin Heidegger, “Question Concerning Technology”
