Technology is a relation between human being and nature in general. The dialectical logic of technique is self- creative and alienating meanwhile. Nevertheless, postmodern technique of creativity has stuck in a vicious circle today by producing merely alienation. Creative thinking is a block itself against creativity. Our institutions with the discourses of philosophy, science and art are in the chamber of the vicious circle. This paper tries to give a clear and distinct definition of postmodern technique, and attempts to find a way out in an ontological discourse.
