The concept of the user is not a well-established sociological concept even though the "user" is omnipresent in our culture as someone who uses a device, a machine, the internet or a public service. Due to the close relationship between man and technology "user studies" have become very important. The papers assembled in this volume were presented at the Vth International Conference on -The Culture of the Artificial- - "The User of the Artificial" (Ascona Switzerland, Monte Verita, 23-25 April 2004). They deal with various aspects of the figure of the user."

We all are users of technology and services, but the way we use them strongly depends on who our 'interlocutor' is: a machine, a software application or a person. The contributions of this volume look at the concept of the user from various perspectives and continue to discuss the theme started in volume three on the user of the artificial. Topics include: man-machine relations such as the user and the virtual world of the internet or users in various cultural contexts of the artificial. The second part of the book focuses on man-nature relations and introduces the Japanese concept of Kyosei (symbiosis) in the context of technology and the environment.
