Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Human relations to computer technology is a crucial fraction of philosophy of technology. Among phenomenological approaches to the field, one of the experts, Don Ihde, introduces a fourfold categorisation of human-technology relations. In this report Ihde’s theory, which was originally directed towards technology in general, is used to describe human relations to computers through the different generations of programming-languages. The result is an analysis of these types of relations in the specific context of complex computer technology, that constitute a fundamentally different type of human-technology relationship. Furthermore the possibilities of application of Ihde’s theory in relations to computers is discussed, and hereby extended to entail a more qualified capacity of describing and understanding said relationships.
