In this paper, the critique does not concern the production in itself, but its hypertrophic enlargement, that we can call "productivism". It consists in reducing the whole reality to an object of production, and in forcing to increase the quantities, giving sense only to that we can use as means to produce. To illustrate the issue, the author refers to Aristotle, Heidegger and Marx, in order to ask this crucial question: how to preserve the totality of being from a destiny of unlimited manipulation? We have to save the difference between "production" and "generation"; so re-thinking the relationship between the happening being and the unconditioned being, which nobody could be able to produce.
Keywords: Production, productivism, Aristotle, Heidegger, generation, conditioned and unconditioned being.
