This book is a major contribution to the sparse body of knowledge in the Western philosophical tradition dealing with the foundations of a field of scholarly research. Here the case is so-called postphenomenology, which owes so much to Don Ihde, who provides a brilliant introduction. The two co-editors are equally important, and represent researchers in both the United States and Europe, whose contributions constitute much of the volume.

This anthology is an absolute must for newcomers as well as those versed in the field and its discussions. The book shows how far the burgeoning field of postphenomenological analysis has come since the broader and largely technology-deterministic approaches made by the phenomenological predecessors, most prominently Martin Heidegger. Both novices and those already acquainted with this philosophical style of analysis get plenty of new food for thought in essays addressing technological agency, speed, ethics, humanoid robots, bodies, science fiction, politics, philosophy of design, and scientific practice, as well as a number of brilliantly executed and informative case studies.
