Within the first volumes of Technics and Time, Bernard Stiegler labored rigorously via Heidegger's and Husserl's courting to technics and expertise. the following, in quantity 3, he turns his recognition to the prolematic dating to technics he unearths in Kant's Critique of natural cause, really within the types of the Transcendental Deduction.
Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.

Nietzsche, “The Most Valuable Insights Are Arrived at Last: But the Most Valuable Insights Are Methods,” in Will to Power (London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1968), sect. 469. 3 In Between Word and Image… 33 ourselves from our initial involvements with them. Such a posture of distanced disinterestedness has nothing to do with any illusory attempt to objectify the pre-suppositions of understanding but with activating them in such a way as to both challenge customary juxtapositions and generate hitherto unseen possibilities.
By virtue of the everyday play of language, sudden insights can, of course, occur serendipitously. Our discussion of Wittgenstein made this clear. Though it is unable to predict the emergence of transformative insights, method can deliberately seek to prompt unexpected fusions of meaning. Deliberate intervention will not guarantee the emergence of new understanding. It will just make it more likely. Without it, the occurrence of insight will depend upon the contingencies of whether the artwork “speaks” to a viewer or not, or whether the chance and circumstantial play of language can achieve it.
We would like, however, to move away from the broader Kantian framework. However, whereas the straining of aesthetic ideas is a straining to be other than themselves, the straining of subjectmatters is a straining to be more than themselves. Subject-matters do not strive to go beyond sensible experience (pass into pure reflection) but to extend the very boundaries of experience and alignments of meaning they spring from. Subject-matters like words have a speculative charge: they invariably point to something unsaid which is not equivalent to leaving sensible experience but, importantly, to extending it.
