Postphenomenology and Technoscience… Pragmatics and Phenomenology

IHDE, D. (2009) Postphenomenology and Technoscience: The Peking University Lectures. New York: State University of New York Press.

“I have coined a special terminology, reflected in the title, postphenomenology and technoscience. And while a postphenomenology clearly owes its roots to phenomenology, it is a deliberate adaptation or change in postphenomenology that reflects historical changes in the twenty first century.” (p5)

Postphenomenology is useful as although I am staying within phenomenology, Ihde’s ideas do show possibilities to how I can synthesise pragmatic aesthetics with a phenomenological methodology, to reveal and visually communicate an experience of an interaction to help interaction designers.
