SJ: "Vi har asylsökande på tåget som saknar biljetter och vi inväntar nu polis." Om möjligheterna att tänka ett situerat fördelningsperspektiv hos Alf Hornborg

Abstract
This essay investigates how we can re-think central perspectives in Alf Hornborg´s writing. Hornborg (2011) argues that we culturally have “an unembodied image of technology”, which leaves our machines “exempt from moral critique”. Still, there are no ideas on embodiment to be found in Hornborg´s own writing on technology. This leaves the reader with the necessity to situate the very thoughts of Hornborg. In this essay the author explores how to situate Hornborg.
The author has, for investigational reasons, chosen a specific historical context as point of departure, in order to situate Hornborg´s thinking in a concrete situation. The chosen context comes from a train awaiting the police to come and gather up asylum seekers, who traveled... (More)
This essay investigates how we can re-think central perspectives in Alf Hornborg´s writing. Hornborg (2011) argues that we culturally have “an unembodied image of technology”, which leaves our machines “exempt from moral critique”. Still, there are no ideas on embodiment to be found in Hornborg´s own writing on technology. This leaves the reader with the necessity to situate the very thoughts of Hornborg. In this essay the author explores how to situate Hornborg.
The author has, for investigational reasons, chosen a specific historical context as point of departure, in order to situate Hornborg´s thinking in a concrete situation. The chosen context comes from a train awaiting the police to come and gather up asylum seekers, who traveled without tickets, in Sweden 2012. In a manner of contextual philosophy, the author argues that re-thinking a system theoretical world-view demands the Human Ecology student to co-contextualize a specific world fragment and Hornborg´s perspective. This essay articulates how Human Ecology can leave the unembodied image of both person and technology, since it is one issue of interaction, and engage thinking as the practice of embodiment it actually is, in a social ontology of living bodies.
