The question is after cultural resource for criticism of technological progress or even for resistance against it. By cultural resources Böhme does not mean just values but cultural practices which may substantiate in social movements associations; even laws. He enumerates four of them: Nature; Creation; Subjectivity; and History. The paper raises the questions

  • Are there equivalents to these resources which are quite effective in Euro in other cultures?
  • Does not technological progress eat up the resources which were “dispositives” for its own development; i.e. restrictions as well as patterning conditions?
