Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores implications of Heidegger’s landmark discussion of technology. Specifically, it examines how our relationship with technology is “revealing” of the human condition and how this may bear on music education. Technology’s impact on understandings of what it means to be human is explored through a discussion of techné and technological determinism. This is then linked to how technology has altered our musical subjectivity and our understandings of what it means to be “musically educated.” The chapter concludes with considering a few ways in which we might begin to think about technology’s potential impact on our music teaching and learning practices, with a reminder that the classroom is perhaps the ultimate technology at our disposal.

Keywords: Heidegger, techné, technological determinism, musical subjectivity, musically educated
