ABSTRACT

Kittler, a media theorist who puts emphasis on technology, excludes human body from media and raises a fundamental question of the limitation and attributes of physiological perception. He suggests the course that human's perception has been built and changed in the technological-discoursive situation as an output of Aufschreibesystem. This thesis aims to define the attributes of the perception for Aufschreibesystem 1800, 1900 as the ‘illusion’ and ‘TAM and standardization of perception’, and to try to clarify the process of building and the characters. In the case of the Aufschreibesystem 1800, children might be prepared some special perceptive condition by the literal education through mother's voice, then they can get the effect of ‘vision’ stronger when they receive literal text as the result. And what's more, in the literal text of those days might be shown many kinds of narrative techniques to give prominence to the ‘vision’. This result demonstrates the way of perception of Aufschreibesystem 1800 has built in the media technological situation that accepts the letter as hieroglyphic traits linked to the essential part of nature. The way of perception of Aufschreibesystem 1900 is formed newly by the appearance of technological media on the other hand, TAM(Time Axis Manipulation), Kittler refers the important character of media, is the attribute of the new way of perception. And the contents of gramophone and film might be shown as the result of TAM. First, TAM is an major element to decide the industrial standard for the mass production and distribution of technological media. Then TAM brings effect to replace people's perception as mediated perception. The process shows how the technological media effects to the people's perception consequentially. The scenes reported by media might be the standard for the actual movement, then the standardized movement brings the effect for the automation. And this change forms a new rhythm of technological media. Through the study about the perception way's change, we can confirm the media control our perception and the way for writing of media constitutes the way of perception for us in this way. Kittler suggests the role of human being's natural perception in the formation and change of the way of perception has been reduced historically. And he asks some basic questions about the role and the meaning of the genuine perception's mechanism unrelated to the technological perceptional way. It is an undeniable fact that the way of us to meet the world is mediated fundamentally after the appearance of technological media even though Kittler's perception theory might be criticized on many points. And his perception study can show the method to access our situation and the character of perception's way more accurately.
