Critical Constructivism and Postphenomenology: Ethics, Politics, and the Empirical
Critical Constructivism, Postphenomenology and the Politics of Technology
Critical constructivism adds a dimension of collective action to postphenomenology. This paper explains the intervention of collective subjects into technological design. That intervention presupposes communication between lay and expert actors which is made possible by the dependence of technical disciplines on the lifeworld. Understanding the public processes of intervention requires a notion of multiple types of rationality and a social account of technological design.
