The main attraction to design thinking, and one that is often misunderstood, is that the “thinking” part extends far beyond a Cartesian model of the thinking subject. The designer is not one who theorizes about the world and acts based on speculation, as this is not representative of the human condition. Thinking inherently involves making. Externalization of thought outside the head is not only beneficial, but necessary. It is only through making that we are able to think. The creation of prototypes, for example, is not to simply create an object but rather to explore ideas in a physical space. The externalization of ideas is not linear; successful creation extends back to “thinking,” thus linking the self and world, much like Heidegger’s notion of Dasein. Design is a Daseinerly process, and Dasein is a designerly process (yes, I said it).
