  • Hci Theory: Classical, Modern, and Contemporary By Yvonne Rogers, Theory is the bedrock of many sciences, providing a rigorous method to advance knowledge, through testing and falsifying hypotheses about observable phenomena To begin with, the nascent field of HCI followed the scientific method borrowing theories from cognitive science to test theories about user performance at the interface But HCI has emerged as an eclectic interdiscTheory is the bedrock of many sciences, providing a rigorous method to advance knowledge, through testing and falsifying hypotheses about observable phenomena To begin with, the nascent field of HCI followed the scientific method borrowing theories from cognitive science to test theories about user performance at the interface But HCI has emerged as an eclectic interdiscipline rather than a well defined science It now covers all aspects of human life, from birth to bereavement, through all manner of computing, from device ecologies to nano technology It comes as no surprise that the role of theory in HCI has also greatly expanded from the early days of scientific testing to include other functions such as describing, explaining, critiquing, and as the basis for generating new designs The book charts the theoretical developments in HCI, both past and present, reflecting on how they have shaped the field It explores both the rhetoric and the reality how theories have been conceptualized, what was promised, how they have been used and which has made the most impact in the field and the reasons for this Finally, it looks to the future and asks whether theory will continue to have a role, and, if so, what this might be Table of Contents Introduction The Backdrop to HCI Theory The Role and Contribution of Theory in HCI Classical Theories Modern Theories Contemporary Theory Discussion Summary

    1. This is a great entry point for anyone who is interested in HC but lacks the background The relatively short writing provides an overview of HCI from early 19th century to now Drawing analogy from Art History, this book strategically divided the history of HCI into Classical, Modern and Contemporary as it aligns the aspirations represented by these eras with their counterparts in the history of Art, making the content easy to digest.

    2. Read most of it in preparation for PhD qualifier exams Quite comprehensive coverage of the role, and evolution of theory in HCI.
