Van Den Eede Yoni

Yoni Van Den Eede is a postdoctoral fellow of the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). He conducts research into the philosophy of technology, media theory and media ecology, with an emphasis on phenomenological, cultural, existential and political themes. At the moment, he works on a project that studies media usage from an epistemological-critical viewpoint, especially focusing on the thinking of cyberneticist Gregory Bateson, reinterpreting the latter in the context of a contemporary philosophy of technology. Yoni is the author of Amor Technologiae: Marshall McLuhan as Philosopher of Technology (Brussels, VUBPRESS, 2012) and of Mens en media. Van Marshall McLuhan tot een hedendaagse filosofie van media en technologie (Tielt, LannooCampus, 2014). He is currently President of the Society for Phenomenology and Media, and teaches the course ‘Contemporary Issues in the Philosophy of Media’ (titular: Prof. K.
