Expanding Hermeneutics: Visualism in Science - Don Ihde

I do appreciate that this book attempts to reconcile old disciplines (hermeneutics) with contemporary phenomenological contexts (technology), but I feel as if it is "yoking together" things by violence rather than giving us a clear vision of what the author really means.

 

He uses stances that seem to me far-fetched.


Don't get me wrong. I do agree with him in what concerns the necessity of applying hermeneutics to the contemporary world, but this reconciliation has to be smoothly undertaken. And that is what lacks in this book so far.
