Service interfaces in human-technology relations: A case study of self-tracking technologies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientific


This edited volume is the first publication to tackle the issue of researching human-technology relations from a methodological postphenomenological perspective. While the 'traditional' phenomenology of the 20th century, with figures like Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, provided valuable insights into the formal structures of essence, being and embodiment, etc. their mode of philosophizing mostly involved abstract 'pure' thinking. Although rooted in this tradition, the postphenomenological approach to the study of human-technology relations emphasizes the "empirical turn" and interdisciplinary work in the field of philosophy - and reaches out to other disciplines like anthropology, education, media studies, and science and technology studies (STS).
