consumed by technology. In his words, “[art]is pious… yielding to the holding-sway and the safekeeping
of truth”(1977, p.18). In this activity, focus on art the saving power of technology. Form groups with four
members each and look for an artwork that ‘reveals’the human person in the midst of technology. In
class, brainstorm for 30 minutes. Discuss the artwork in relation to the general concepts discussed in
Martin Heigegger’s The Question Concerning Technology, and present your chosen artwork and the
summary of your discussion in front of the class.

Exercise 2. Personal Consumption Audit

Instructions: People believe that the more they are able to purchase things and avail of services, the more
‘developed’ and ‘progressive’ are the lives they lead. Yet, Hickey made it clear in his article that huge
consumption does not necessarily equate to long and happy lives. In this sense, is it possible for people to also de-
develop their consumption, but still remain happy and contented? Accomplish the personal consumption audit table
below and see what things you can reduce or minimize without sacrificing, or even improving, the quality of your
daily life. For your guidance, the first ro has been provided as an example.

MY PERSONAL CONSUMPTION AUDIT


Average daily, weekly or No. of hours/ days I reduce/ Impact of this ‘de-
Product /Food monthly amount consumed away with developing’ on my
