PHILOSOPHERS AT GEORGIA TECH
Dr. Robert Rosenberger
A central focus of my research is the analysis of the ways technologies are wrapped up in contexts of conceptualization, use, and bodily habit. These studies include investigations into the experience of everyday devices (e.g. cellular phones, automobiles), and reflection on problems that accompany their use (e.g. the drop in driving proficiency that occurs as one talks on the phone). One ongoing branch of these studies involves the analysis of the roles imaging technologies play in scientific research, and the implications for specific contemporary debates in fields such as space science and neurobiology.
