Don Ihde is one of the founders of a distinctly North American approach to phenomenology in work that centers around technology. After completing his . degree at the University of Kansas (1956), he earned a Master of Divinity degree at Andover Newton Theological School (1959) and a P. at Boston University (1964). His doctoral dissertation on the phenomenology of Paul Ricoeur set the stage for later original contributions to phenomenological analysis. In 1990 Ihde, together with Indiana University Press, initiated a new monograph series in philosophy of technology that has since become one of the most influential collection of publications in the field.

Technology and the Lifeworld our new automobiles even report to us on their conditions through the computerized and electronically displayed instruments which be- speak their kind of human-technology communications. All of this mundane activity will probably also be accompanied by other dimensions of human-technology interaction. For example, while eating, the television might have been on to let in the world; while driving to work, the radio entertains or informs; if the driver is more a workaholic, the dictating machinery might already be engaged.

"Don Ihde is a pleasure to read.... The material is full of nice suggestions and details, empirical materials, fun variations which engage the reader in the work... the overall points almost sneak up on you, they are so gently and gradually offered." â?”John Compton

"A sophisticated celebration of cultural diversity and of its enabling technologies.... perhaps the best single volume relating the philosophical tradition to the broad issues raised by contemporary technologies." â?”Choice

"... important and challenging... " â?”Review of Metaphysics

"... a range of rich historical, cultural, philosophical, and psychological insights, woven together in an intriguing and clear exposition... The book is really a pleasure to read, for its style, immense learning and sanity." â?”Teaching Philosophy

The role of tools and instruments in our relation to the earth and the ways in which technologies are culturally embedded provide the foci of this thought-provoking book.

Difficult, boring, reading material. Yes, it could have been fascinating and interesting, but the writing sounds too much like rambling. All in all just really hard to follow.
