Summary

With Existential Technics, Don Ihde advances his reflections on the role technology plays in human life. Heretofore primarily the province of Continental thinkers, philosophy of technology is a growing preoccupation of North American philosophers. This collection of essays is a philosophical reflection on and critique of human experience from a clearly American perspective guided by phenomenological analysis.

This book is divided into three parts. The first, technics, deals with human interaction with technology and its existential effects. The remaining sections on perception and interpretation examine the imaginative use of phenomenology in the visual and auditory realms of art, music, and intercultural perceptions, and are followed by discussions of contemporary hermeneutics and deconstruction theory, particularly in the thought of Heidegger and Derrida.

Don Ihde is Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is the author of Hermeneutic Phenomenology: The Philosophy of Paul Ricoeur, Sense and Significance, Listening and Voice: A Phenomenology of Sound, Experimental Phenomenology, and Technics and Praxis.
