Becoming attuned: post-phenomenology & embodied methodology, James Ash

from the postphenomenology workshop (see bold link above): This paper invites a new form of methodological imaginary based around an emerging style of post-phenomenological thinking. Drawing upon the work of Erin Manning, Bruno Latour and Martin Heidegger the paper develops a conceptual vocabulary of attunement to interrogate non-human objects. The paper discusses two modes of attunement in particular. The first being vibration, understood as a unit of sense that crosses between the human and non-human and the second being tone, understood as an organisation of forces that prime particular kinds of environmentally contextual response. Drawing upon these concepts, the paper presents a series of empirical vignettes to show how a post phenomenology offers novel ways of interrogating the role non-human things play in the organization of human life.
