Hypertext as a technology


Heidegger's notion of enframing is seminal to the understanding of how hypertext can be thought as operating across the assumed boundaries of the semantic field, as well as all other fields of signifying convention.

Among the issues that arise here is how the solicitation of hypertext would mark, as Samuel Weber puts it, a way "in which the 'technics' of Heidegger's quest(ion) entails the destabilisation of such fields," and how this solicitation as a general bringing-forth might be regarded simultaneously as a function of poiesis and of technics, both "originary" and mechanical production, reproduction or repetition.

In other words, how this solicitation would describe what Joyce terms a "paradox lust," operating somewhere between the concepts of techne and logos.
Similarly, in light of the various recent developments in the application of computing science within the field of Joycean scholarship, the question arises as to what it might imply if we were to approach hypertext as a particular technology, as technological - what the word "technology" might signify in the context of Joyce's writing practice-keeping in mind Heidegger's assertion that "techne belongs to bringing-forth, to poiesis; it is something poetic."
