ABSTRACT

The theme of this paper is to introduce the main contents of the culture techniques theory and to explore what the theoretical perspective is suggesting in a new direction for our understanding of culture, art and human beings. Since human's culture is always connected with technology, human beings are associated with non-human such as objects, tools, machines and animals, and their relationship is interdependent. Also, cultural skills are closely related to the media, but they are not the sames. It can be said to describe what the media does, what it produces, and what kind of action it triggers. It is the apriori and interface of the media in that it enables the genealogical study of the media. This article focuses on Friedrich Kittler's study of the ancient Greek alphabet. He presumes that the vowel alphabet was developed to record the six retaliatory poems, Iliad and Odyssey, as the poet sang. Sounds and songs are one-time sensory events. Greek writing becomes a cultural technique that sensibly records human experience.
