Husserl's Missing Technologies Summary

Husserl's Missing Technologies by Don Ihde

Husserl's Missing Technologies looks at the early-twentieth-century "classical" phenomenology of Edmund Husserl, both in the light of the philosophy of science of his time, and retrospectively at his philosophy from a contemporary "postphenomenology." Of central interest are his infrequent comments upon technologies and especially scientific instruments such as the telescope and microscope. Together with his analysis of Husserl, Don Ihde ventures through the recent history of technologies of science, reading and writing, and science praxis, calling for modifications to phenomenology by converging it with pragmatism. This fruitful hybridization emphasizes human-technology interrelationships, the role of embodiment and bodily skills, and the inherent multistability of technologies. In a radical argument, Ihde contends that philosophies, in the same way that various technologies contain an ever-shortening obsolescence, ought to have contingent use-lives.

Husserl's Missing Technologies Reviews

"Husserl's Missing Technologies is a natural and informative companion to Heidegger's Technologies. It deepens Ihde's analysis of technology and offers important new perspectives on pragmatism, science, and technology studies. An insightful and probing work."----Carl Mitcham, Colorado School of Mines
"Don Ihde offers a highly original perspective on main themes of his post-phenomenology. This splendid study should be read by every STS researcher and every Husserl scholar." * -Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
"[Ihde] is easily America's most important interpreter and popularizer of phenomenology as a method and a philosophy... What's wonderful about Ihde... is the rigor he has brought during his long career to examining technologies of science, reading and writing, and science praxis." * -Charles Johnson: By the Book, The New York Times *
