Borgmann

Even though there are many thinkers that devote their time to explore the transforming grounds, one philosopher is making a mark, and that is Albert Borgmann. In his books he takes the transformation seriously and has tried to reflect upon it in such a way that it is not only defined and explained, but a result of a process, of a mechanism, of a human desire.
