Augustine Farinola deposited HUMAN AND VIRTUAL REALITY TECHNOLOGY RELATION: A POSTPHENOMELOGICAL ANALYSIS in the group African Philosophy on Humanities Commons 2 years, 5 months ago
In this essay, I shall examine VR technology so as to ascertain the kind of human-technology relations therein. This will be done using the framework provided by Don Ihde and Peter-Paul Verbeek (who are currently seen as postphenomenologists). My choice of VR technology, as an instantiation of technological advancement, is due to its impact on phenomenological concepts such as consciousness, experience and perception. I shall conclude with a critical appraisal of the new insights gained from Ihde and Verbeek approach to Philosophy of Technology.
