File:Ihde Don Technology and the Lifeworld From Garden to donkeytime.org - MonoskopIn this article we will take a closer look at the four different relations distinguished by Don Ihde. What role does technology play in everyday human experience? And how do technological instruments produce and transform human knowledge? Ihde, who was born in , develops a new perspective on technology: a perspective that wants to get closer into contact with concrete technologies. He sets himself the task of exploring this very role of technologies. In embodiment relations, technologies form a unity with a human being, and this unity is directed at the world: we speak with other people through the phone, rather than speaking to the phone itself, and we look through a microscope rather than at it.
