    Ihde s phenomenological work is always very, very interesting, and his style is particularly suited to the defamiliarizing aim of such a philosophy Here he turns his attention to sound, the most pervasive and yet perhaps overlooked sense that we have The analyses that he performs yield some relatively unsurprising results in terms of defining or describing the structure of our aural experience, but is nonetheless fascinating in how it classifies the generalized experience that we all have with Ihde s phenomenological work is always very, very interesting, and his style is particularly suited to the defamiliarizing aim of such a philosophy Here he turns his attention to sound, the most pervasive and yet perhaps overlooked sense that we have The analyses that he performs yield some relatively unsurprising results in terms of defining or describing the structure of our aural experience, but is nonetheless fascinating in how it classifies the generalized experience that we all have with sounds Here are things that we know implicitly about our sense of hearing, yet have rarely bothered to put into words Thinking through these things with Ihde is thus fascinating and rewarding, even if sometimes his variations can be a bit complex even for someone versed in philosophical and phenomenological vocabulary in some ways this has been the densest of Ihde s books that I ve read That being said, if you are interested in sound, hearing, or music, this is a fascinating read that can really help you to think about how we interact with and take in sounds, and what it can mean to be involved in the production of sounds via things like speech

    This has been sitting on my shelf for some time I first encountered the title years back in an essay by Fran Dyson in her essay on phenomenology and Cage from the Wireless Imagination book With all the blather about phenomenology in recent sound studies, I have found it quite curious that no one except Dyson has referenced this text So I read it The book is quite old and one of Ihde s earliest before he became something of a premiere Riceour scholar In the preface he describes the book This has been sitting on my shelf for some time I first encountered the title years back in an essay by Fran Dyson in her essay on phenomenology and Cage from the Wireless Imagination book With all the blather about phenomenology in recent sound studies, I have found it quite curious that no one except Dyson has referenced this text So I read it The book is quite old and one of Ihde s earliest before he became something of a premiere Riceour scholar In the preface he describes the book as something of an experimental phenomenology trying to work through the ideas of phenomenology in this case, the shift from Husserl to Heidegger in the process of actually describing embodied experiences of listening What s absolutely remarkable is that Ihde wrote this book without any reference and thus, I presume, no knowledge of Pierre Schaeffer The overlaps are remarkable, particularly in how Ihde gives an analysis of the phenomenological reduction in the field of auditory experience The book should make a useful supplement to students of Schaeffer and musique concrete particularly given how little of Schaeffer s actual writings are available in English Of course, Ihde falls into much of the conventional metaphysical traps of Husserlean phenomenology There is a forceful rejection of psychoanalysis and the very notion of a split subject This is precisely the sort of full presence in phenomenological discourse that is at the heart of critiques by Derrida and Kristeva When Ihde acknowledges the former, he launches into such a gross misreading that clearly helps to give him an alibi and dismiss any difficult challenges that Derrida makes to Husserlean metaphysics in particular But that said, the book is a great introduction to the problems practice of phenomenology within the field of sound
