Taking its cue from poststructuralist deconstruction, this study develops a new concept of technics, technique, and technology. This new concept of technics is located at a quasi-ontological level, and it thereby becomes possible to renegotiate the relation between being and technics. Technics is understood as an operative force that is inscribed with multiplicity and heterogeneity from the very outset, while at the same time defying rigid order and origin. This leads to a new conceptualization of the machine. The author distinguishes between three different machines: a literary machine, a metaphysical machine, and a political machine. These three machines constantly interrelate, but while the metaphysical machine plays a decisive role in structuring the interrelation between these three machines, the literary machine plays a decisive role in deconstructing the interrelations.
