ABSTRACT
At present, it is justified to talk about Apocalypse or even “Apocalypses”, in the plural form. The current situation - with the ecological crisis on one side, and the atomic threat on the other side - needs serious, deep, reflection. Günther Anders, one of the greatest German thinkers of the contemporary age, has devoted his attention precisely to this theme. He considers man to be inevitably slipping towards total destruction, both of humanity and of the world. At the basis of this idea there is the predicament of a man who has lost his humanity. He considers machines as an ideal and technology as the perfect form of existence. He feels inadequate and outdated, and abdicates his dignity and his responsibility towards himself and the world.
