The phenomenology of television

The phenomenology of television

(p.13) 1 The phenomenology of television

Anthony Curtis Adler

Fordham University Press

This chapter shows that television, as the tendency to unworldliness inhabiting Dasein as being-in-the-world, stresses the project of phenomenology to its limit, posing both the condition of its possibility and impossibility. Living with television we find ourselves not only in two different places at once, not only here and there, but at once in a place and a nonplace; within the everydayness of our world but, at the same time, in another everydayness that in some essential way is before us, that we are constantly faced with, but is not for us.

Keywords:   Dasein, everdayness, phenomenology, television
