Dreyfus has helped to create a culture of reflection -- of questioning the deep premises that inform and shape computing and cognitive research. He has also been the primary introducer and interpreter of Martin Heidegger's work to the computer and technical world. The essays in this volume represent the fruitful application of deep philosophical analysis to the concerns of our modern technological world.
The sections are Coping and Intentionality; Computers and Cognitive Science; and "Applied Heidegger." In addition to cognitive science and artificial intelligence, topics include everyday skills, religion, business practices, and medical care. The book concludes with Dreyfus's responses to the essays.
