Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra’s Abode, and Prometheism.

Here he highlights the fact that Heidegger maintains that technology is prior to science, and is a necessary condition for science. In fact, human beings are uniquely defined by their use of technology. Paradoxically, technology is also potentially a dehumanizing force. The implications of an eventual technological singularity are enormous. He argues that we must become conscious of the Promethean spirit that is driving technological advancements.

Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment.
