The Inner History of Devices

Contemporary science has done a great disservice to Sigmund Freud, suggests Sherry Turkle, who believes the psychoanalytic tradition can teach us much about the often concealed connections between physical objects and our thoughts and feelings. On the occasion of the publication of her latest book, The Inner History of Devices—the third in a trilogy—Turkle speaks of the importance of technology as a subjective tool, as a window into the soul.
