A PHILOSOPHICAL APPROACH TO DESIGN. THE DESIGN OF PHILOSOPHY

Maria de Fatima Teixeira Pombo

Abstract


This article is based on my interest of approaching Design from a philosophical perspective, namely from phenomenology and hermeneutics. Considering my contribution in the frame of an exploratory article, I mainly can arise questions and ‘intuitions’ rather than propose answers or solutions. Moreover, my research about this topic is a on going work and the way seems very long and very demanding. By developing such an approach to Design, I believe that it will be also possible to develop a new argument: that what I mean by the Design of Philosophy. Hopefully, this and other concepts will be clarified during the progress of my research. In effect, it is not yet possible to present all the insights in this article.


Keywords
