What Things Do: Philosophical Reflections On Technology, Agency, And Design by Peter Paul Verbeek style=

This books takes a philosophical perspective to material objects and how user centered design pertains to it. It paints a rich picture of how real-world objects and technology shape the human condition. It also distances itself from earlier philosophical paradigms of fearful observance of the role of technology. This book has much more nuance, and is therefor useful for a modern designer of products.
