Abstract

This article highlight and reconstructs some reflexions on the nature of technique to show that this is not only an evolutionary strategy tie to the survival, as in the case of other animals, but something that molds the human being as a whole. I adopta flexible naturalist approach (methodological naturalism) in which philosophy is accepted as being complementary to the natural sciences and as well-suited for the philosophical study oftechnique. Although it could initially be supposed that reflexions on technique taken from philosophical tradition, such as those of Ortega y Gasset and of Heidegger, both of them are distant and mutually exclusive, it is shown that this distinction is diffuseand that, to the contrary, they may complement each other if one adopts a naturalist approach such as this one.
