Introna, Lucas and Ilharco, F (2006) On the Meaning of Screens: Towards a Phenomenological Account of Screenness. Human Studies, 29 (1). pp. 57-76. ISSN 0163-8548Full text not available from this repository.
This paper presents a Heideggerian phenomenological analysis of screens. In a world and an epoch where screens pervade a great many aspects of human experience, we submit that phenomenology, much in a traditional methodological form, can provide an interesting and novel basis for our understanding of screens. We ground our analysis in the ontology of Martin Heidegger's Being and Time [1927/1962], claiming that screens will only show themselves as they are if taken as screens-in-the-world. Thus, the phenomenon of screen is not investigated in its empirical form or conceptually. It is rather taken as a grounding intentional orientation that conditions our engagement with certain surfaces as we comport ourselves towards them â��as screens.â�� In doing this we claim to have opened up the phenomenon of screen in a new and meaningful way.
