Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Interaction Design is the design of systems in which people and artifacts engage with each other. It applies to the design of any virtual or physical instrument (usually computer-based) that facilitates interaction between people and people, or between people and devices or services. The field is ad hoc and multidisciplinary, so claims no ‘unified theory.’ Instead, in essays by 26 major thinkers and designers, Theories and Practice in Interaction Design presents the rich mosaic of ideas which nourish the lively art of interaction design.

 

The editors’ introduction is a critical survey of interaction design with a debt and contribution to neighboring disciplines, notably cognitive psychology, computer science, discourse analysis, economics, engineering, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics and sociology. Twenty-two essays then follow, by experts in these disciplines and in interaction design, grouped under key terms: activity, emotion, situatedness, community, and so on.

 

This book is of interest to anyone in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction, cognitive psychology, human factors/ergonomics, linguistics, semiotics, art, design, and computer science.

Book News Annotation:

Because interaction design is a new practice, the contributors to this volume draw from other practices and disciplines, such as cognitive psychology, computer science, discourse analysis, economics, engineering, linguistics and semiotics, to develop methods applicable to interaction design. With relevant ideas from these other disciplines, each essay responds to one of the seven themes--activity, emotion, situatedness, community, conversation, memories and market--that Bagnara (cognitive ergonomics, Milan Polytechnic) and Smith (director, Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, Italy) identify as important to the field.

Synopsis:

Ad hoc and interdisciplinary, the field of interaction design claims no unified theory. Yet guidelines are needed. In essays by 26 major thinkers and designers, this book presents the rich mosaic of ideas which nourish the lively art of interaction design. The editors introduction is a critical survey of interaction design with a debt and contribution to neighboring disciplines, notably cognitive psychology, computer science, discourse analysis, economics, engineering, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics and sociology.
