The anthology “Das geteilte Ganze. Horizonte Integrierter Forschung für künftige Mensch-Technik-Verhältnisse” (Unofficial translation: “The shared whole. Horizons of integrated research for future human-technology relationships”), edited by Prof. Arne Manzeschke (Evangelische Hochschule Nürnberg) and Dr. Bruno Gransche (Universität Siegen), has now been published by Springer VS. The anthology provides a comprehensive overview of the integrated research of future human-technology relationships and offers approaches to a holistic research perspective, as well as innovation impulses from integrated research. While the first part of the anthology concentrates on the fundamental considerations for integrated research and the individual contributions deal with the perspectives of integrated research from a theoretical point of view, the second part provides practical examples. Practical considerations and methods as well as experimental first steps are presented here. Our project “poliTE – social appropriateness for artificial assistants” also serves as a case study. The corresponding essay was written in collaboration with Jacqueline Bellon, Bruno Gransche and Sebastian Nähr-Wagener. In addition to a general presentation of the aims and procedures in the “poliTE” project, as well as a section of previous research results, the interdisciplinary research approach to the appropriateness of social behavior, the cultural techniques of behavior and the integration of the technological perspective are highlighted here.
The anthology is available as softcover and eBook.
