A phenomenological approach to understanding information and its objects

Thomas Wendt

pp. 61-69

This paper introduces a phenomenological understanding of information as it relates to technology use. Phenomenology is more commonly applied to the understanding of "things"—or the relationship between things, experience, and cognition—than it is to information studies, but there is much that phenomenological philosophy can contribute to understanding the interactions between humans and information. This paper will focus on how classical and contemporary phenomenological ideas influence our understanding of information, ultimately suggesting a deeper understanding of praxis-based organization and design.
