Postphenomenology: Essays in the Postmodern Context

by

Postphenomenology: Essays in the Postmodern Context Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Postphenomenology is a fascinating investigation of the relationships between global culture and technology. The impressive range of subjects to which Don Ihde applies his skill as a phenomenologist is unified by what he describes as "a concern which arises with respect to one of the now major trends of Euro-American philosophy--its textism." He adds, "I show my worries to be less about the loss of subjects or authors, than I do about [there] not being bodies or perceivers."

Book News Annotation:

Essays marked by two recurring themes--one, the intimate connection between technology and culture, and the other what Ihde calls "a perceptual-bodily referentiality"--but also responding either directly or indirectly to the postmodern context. Ihde (philosophy, SUNY, Stony Brook) concludes in the epilogue with a brief reflection on the wider state of humanities as the 21st century approaches.
