Applying Phenomenology and Hermeneutics in IS Design: A Report on Field Experiences

Whitaker, Randall (2007) In Use and Redesign in IS: Double Helix Relationships? p.63-96
Abstract
Phenomenology and hermeneutics have long been promoted as sources

of inspiration for better information system (IS) design. Practical approaches

to applying these philosophical ideas have been awaited for

just as long. This paper offers a review of one practitioner’s experience

in devising a theoretical and methodological ‘toolkit’ via which these

disciplines’ principles have been applied in actual IS design practice.
