For Sherry Turkle We think with the objects we love we love the objects we think with In Evocative Objects Turkle collects writings by scientists humanists artists and designers that trace the power of everyday things These essays reveal objects as emotional and intellectual companions that anchor memory sustain relationships and provoke new ideas These days scholars show new interest in the importance of the concrete This volume s special contribution is its focus on everyday riches the simplest of objects an apple a datebook a laptop computer are shown to bring philosophy down to earth The poet contends No ideas but in things The notion of evocative objects goes further objects carry both ideas and passions In our relations to things thought and feeling are inseparable Whether it s a student s beloved Ford Falcon left behind for a station wagon and motherhood or a cello that inspires a meditation on fatherhood the intimate objects in this collection are used to reflect on larger themes the role of objects in design and play discipline and desire history and exchange mourning and memory transition and passage meditation and new vision In the interest of enriching these connections Turkle pairs each autobiographical essay with a text from philosophy history literature or theory creating juxtapositions at once playful and profound So we have Howard Gardner s keyboards and Lev Vygotsky s hobbyhorses William Mitchell s Melbourne train and Roland Barthes pleasures of text Joseph Cevetello s glucometer and Donna Haraway s cyborgs Each essay is framed by images that are themselves evocative Essays by Turkle begin and end the collection inviting us to look more closely at the everyday objects of our lives the familiar objects that drive our routines hold our affections and open out our world in unexpected ways, A love for science can start with a love for an object be it a fishing rod or a microscope In this collection distinguished scientists engineers and designers describe how objects encountered in childhood became part of the fabric of their scientific selves, Dynasty provides a portrayal of the last years of Lacan s life and the events that unfolded in the years following his death in, No description available
