Homo Ludens (book) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Homo Ludens (book)

Homo Ludens or "Man the Player" (alternatively, "Playing Man") is a book written in 1938 by Dutch historian and cultural theorist Johan Huizinga. It discusses the importance of the play element of culture and society. Huizinga suggests that play is primary to and a necessary (though not sufficient) condition of the generation of culture.

descriptively, they disagree about ... other matters. One is that
Wittgenstein’s grammar has to do with uses of language (discourse
conditions and discourse continuation) rather than forms and their
combinations (morphology and syntax)." This essay seeks to present an
integration of the two analytical perspectives into a single (metaphorical)

Does Technology Make You Smarter Than You Think?

Does Technology Make You Smarter Than You Think? | Philosophy, Psychology, Art, Communication, Language | Scoop.it
A conversation with Clive Thompson, author of Smarter Than You Think

 

Bill Keller of The New York Times has said Twitter is “the enemy of contemplation.”  Yet tech journalist Clive Thompson thinks ever new technologies, although sometimes distracting, on net have made us much smarter because we are social beings and a great deal of our thinking occurs outside our minds.

 

Thompson, an avid reader of ancient books from Project Gutenberg and a writer of magazine articles for over fifteen years, was a member of the Canadian League of Poets, plays guitar in a band: The Delorean Sisters, and had to avoid his Xbox to get his book written.  And it is his appreciation andunderstanding of history that allows him to provide deep insight into how many technologies have come and gone, often improving our lives in many ways.  As you will see, Clive has a delightful way of playing with words and telling stories, and his writing and speech reflect his love of literature and poetry.  Through his many articles on the role of technology in our lives, he provides captivating stories and arguments that make for a very entertaining and thought provoking read.

Anticonventional Thinking versus Brainstorming | Philosophy, Psychology, Art, Communication, Language | Scoop.it

"In ACT, a situation in which you want to take creative action is called a 'transcendental situation' because it transcends most situations in which you do the conventional thing. When faced with a transcendental situation, you should not try to have ideas, but rather you should play with the situation. Bring it deep into your inner mind, explore it, change it, associate it with other situations and get to know it deeply. This helps the mind make unexpected and unconventional connections with other information."

Study Cracks How the Brain Processes Emotions

Study Cracks How the Brain Processes Emotions | Philosophy, Psychology, Art, Communication, Language | Scoop.it

Although feelings are personal and subjective, the human brain turns them into a standard code that objectively represents emotions across different senses, situations and even people, reports a new study by Cornell University neuroscientist Adam Anderson.

“We discovered that fine-grained patterns of neural activity within the orbitofrontal cortex, an area of the brain associated with emotional processing, act as a neural code which captures an individual’s subjective feeling,” says Anderson, associate professor of human development in Cornell’s College of Human Ecology and senior author of the study. “Population coding of affect across stimuli, modalities and individuals,” published online in Nature Neuroscience.

Their findings provide insight into how the brain represents our innermost feelings – what Anderson calls the last frontier of neuroscience – and upend the long-held view that emotion is represented in the brain simply by activation in specialized regions for positive or negative feelings, he says.

“If you and I derive similar pleasure from sipping a fine wine or watching the sun set, our results suggest it is because we share similar fine-grained patterns of activity in the orbitofrontal cortex,” Anderson says.
