Essays in the Postmodern Context
Imprint: Northwestern University Press
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."
"Postphenomenology is exceptionally well written: written in a clear, straightforward, jargon-free language that is engaging, enjoyable to read, and readily accessible; written in a style, and with a vocabulary, that are subtle enough to satisfy the rigorous standards of philosophically trained scholars, yet also, at the same time, simple enough and broad enough to be appealing to nonphilosophers, scholars in many different disciplines, graduate and undergraduate students, and even a multitude of people entirely outside the academic world." —David Michael Levin, Northwestern University
