39) recalls Dreyfus’ (1991) introductory work to Heidegger to highlight the ‘transparency’ of the situated character of action. When Winograd and Flores want to illustrate the importance of being ‘thrown in the situation’ for grasping the more abstract notions of decision and information, they refer to Heidegger (1962) and Dreyfus (1991). Wenger (1998, p. 281, note 35) also sees one of the sources for the social theory of learning and communities of practice in the theories of situated experience based on the phenomenological philosophy of Martin Heidegger.

In other words, phenomenological analysis reveals that in the concrete situations of action in which humans are ‘thrown’ they are constantly ‘affected’ by what’s going on and ‘take care’ of the people and things in the midst of uncertainty. Care denotes our primordial existential involvement with the world, that is, the fact that the world ‘affects’ our being before any thought or theory can be developed. Care is pre-cognitive and pre-theoretical, it is an ontological structure. Care taking implies familiarity with the surrounding world, intimacy with people, solicitousness in decision and action.
