In this article I have suggested that the grammatical ambiguity and logical fallacies entailed in the concept of technology are linked with a fetishistic perception of modern artefacts. These fractures of the logical, objectivist and scientific western identity may indicate that the context of modern technology is not completely rational: fuzzy in a semantic sense, fallacious in logical terms and fetishistic from an anthropological point of view.
