Overview

Maps the future of phenomenological thought, accounting for how technology expands our means of experiencing the world.

A revised form of phenomenology, postphenomenology aims to overcome the limitations of subjectivism and its largely dystopian stance toward science and technology. Timely and insightful, this book provides a useful introduction to postphenomenology, asking how it can effectively transform classical phenomenology into a new and concrete reflection upon technoscience. Tracing the modern history of phenomenology, pragmatism, and philosophy of science, Don Ihde proposes a reframing of phenomenology to better suit today’s contemporary world. An excellent overview of the recent history of the philosophy of science, Postphenomenology and Technoscience revitalizes conceptual frameworks that still have much to offer.
