“Save the technical object” – Gilbert Simondon interview, 1983

Andrew Iliadis has translated what seems like a really interesting interview with Simondon from 1983, originally in the magazine Esprit. Simondon covers creativity, novelty, alienation (in technics as the originary relation of the human-technical) and invention. There are, as one might expect, obvious resonances with Stiegler’s work, e.g.:

“Technics are never completely and forever in the past. They contain a power that is schematic, inalienable, and that deserves to be conserved and preserved.”

I recommend reading it.
