Term Definition
Gestella German word that means ‘skeleton’, frame, shelf and in the variation ‘Untergestell’ chassis and infrastructure – is used by Heidegger to describe the phenomenon of modern technology as that which “captures all what is extant and makes it available through a stock to be put in circulation” (Ciborra & Hanseth, 1998, p16). Applied to universities, Gestell in this sense means all physical and technological infrastructure necessary to fulfil the universities three missions. … And as Ciborra points out, Heidegger defines gestell as the reunion of the organising process, which “overcomes in a felicitous way the dichotomy between the ‘structural’, i.e. static, aspects of infrastructure and their dynamics” (Ciborra & Hanseth, 1998, p.19).
