Summary Read First Chapter image missing

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.

“…Ihde’s way of thinking first and foremost opens intellectual doors to others.” — Human Studies

“...a thought-provoking contribution to the history of twentieth-century philosophy of science and technology. Amidst all the wealth of new ideas the ‘practical turn’ has brought to contemporary science and technology studies in terms of reflections on scientific and technological practice, one is reminded here of theoretical offerings that go back to early twentieth-century pragmatic and phenomenological traditions still worth considering. Ihde’s lectures testify to this historical turn.” — Metascience

“… high marks. It is one of Ihde’s best. This should create an even broader audience for his work.” — Larry Hickman, author of Pragmatism as Post-Postmodernism: Lessons from John Dewey

Don Ihde is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Stony Brook University, State University of New York. He is the author of many books, including Experimental Phenomenology: An Introduction and Listening and Voice: Phenomenologies of Sound, Second Edition, both also published by SUNY Press.
