Cui Zhongliang;Wang Huili;
Technology has laid a foundation for human survival, and it has also brought an unprecedented crisis to the relationship between people, nature and society. According to Merleau-Ponty, the root cause of this crisis is the irrational use of traditional physical thinking in the modern world, which leads to the subjectivity and nihilization of the body and the world. Merleau-Ponty believes that solving the crisis brought by technology need interventions from dimensions like body, experience and habit, and reinterpreting technology in the survival theory dimension in order to reconstruct the meaning of technology.
