Making Space: How the Brain Knows Where Things Are
Knowing where things are seems effortless. Yet our brains devote tremendous computational power to figuring out the simplest details about spatial relationships. Going to the grocery store or finding our cell phone requires sleuthing and coordination across different sensory and motor domains. Making Space" traces this mental detective work to explain how the brain creates our sense of location. But it goes further, to make the case that spatial processing permeates all our cognitive abilities, and that the brain s systems for thinking about space may be the systems of thought itself. Our senses measure energy in the form of light, sound, and pressure on the skin, and our brains evaluate these measurements to make inferences about objects and boundaries. Jennifer Groh describes how eyes detect electromagnetic radiation, how the brain can locate sounds by measuring differences of less than one one-thousandth of a second in how long they take to reach each ear, and how the ear s balance organs help us monitor body posture and movement. The brain synthesizes all this neural information so that we can navigate three-dimensional space. But the brain s work doesn t end there. Spatial representations do double duty in aiding memory and reasoning. This is why it is harder to remember how to get somewhere if someone else is driving, and why, if we set out to do something and forget what it was, returning to the place we started can jog our memory. In making space the brain uses powers we did not know we have."

Photocinema: The Creative Edges of Photography and Film

FREEDownload : Photocinema: The Creative Edges of Photography and Film

Photocinema: The Creative Edges of Photography and Film by Neil Campbell, Alfredo Cramerotti
2013 | ISBN: 1841505625 | English | 224 pages | PDF | 8 MB

Photocinema: The Creative Edges of Photography and Film
Taking as its starting point the notion of photocinema-or the interplay of the still and moving image-the photographs, interviews, and critical essays in this volume explore the ways in which the two media converge and diverge, expanding the boundaries of each in interesting and unexpected ways. The book's innovative approach to film and photography produces what might be termed a hybrid "third space," where the whole becomes much more than the sum of its individual parts, encouraging viewers to expand their perceptions to begin to understand the bigger picture.

The latest edition in Intellect's Critical Photography series, Photocinema represents a nuanced theoretical and practical exploration of the experimental cinematic techniques exemplified by artists like Wim Wenders and Hollis Frampton. In addition to new critical essays by Victor Burgin and David Campany, the book includes interviews with Martin Parr, Hannah Starkey, and Aaron Schumann, and a portfolio of photographs from various new and established artists.

About Europe: Philosophical Hypotheses [Repost]

Denis Gunoun – About Europe: Philosophical Hypotheses
Published: 2013-02-20 | ISBN: 0804773858, 0804773866 | PDF | 352 pages | 22 MB

The concept of the universal was born in the lands we now call Europe, yet it is precisely the universal that is Europe's undoing. All European politics is caught in a tension: to assert a European identity is to be open to multiplicity, but this very openness could dissolve Europe as such. This book reflects on Europe and its changing boundaries over the span of twenty centuries. A work of philosophy, it consistently draws on concrete events. From ancient Greece and Rome, to Christianity, to the Reformation, to the national revolutions of the twentieth century, what we today call "Europe" has been a succession of projects in the name of ecclesia or community. Empire, Church, and EU: all have been constructed in contrast to an Oriental "other." The stakes of Europe, then, are as much metaphysical as political. Redefining a series of key concepts such as world, place, transportation, and the common, this book sheds light on Europe as process by engaging with the most significant philosophical debates on the subject, including the work of Marx, Husserl, Heidegger, Patocka, and Nancy.

Learning What to Ignore: Connecting Multidiscipline Content and Process

Conrad P Pritscher, "Learning What to Ignore: Connecting Multidiscipline Content and Process"
2012 | ISBN-10: 9462091188, 946209117X | 152 pages | PDF | 3,6 MB
The acceptance of reason with uncertainty can help learners successfully manage their occupations and lives during the accelerations prominent in the 21st century. As William Ayers states: "Pritscher tilts his lance at the petrified orthodoxy we call teaching and learning, inviting us on a wild journey into the heart of education." The book elaborates on David Geoffrey Smith's question: "Why does so much educational 'research' today seem so unenlightening, repetitive and incapable of moving beyond itself? The answer must be because it is 'paradigmatically stuck', and cannot see beyond the parameters of its current imaginal space." The book offers help to go beyond the current imaginal space through what is called kaplearning. Kaplearning can help the reader to defamiliarize the common by facilitating "letting go". Pritscher takes an avant-garde approach to learning, pushing the boundaries of the long accepted norm "certainty and order" and modernizing education by trading the old "optimal way" with a new skill to "reason with uncertainty". This resilience to ambiguity is precisely where human intelligence has full advantage over machine intelligence. Pritscher's book is impressive and remarkably well-timed, as recent articles in Nature show that online game players can make surprising breakthroughs in science with a well-chosen confluence of effective sources and a bit of creativity with protein folding. Citizen science has led to solutions that scientists and computer simulators have struggled for years, proving that even with little or no scientific training, knowing what to ignore can invite innovating ways to think and execute. Pritscher's clear and wise insight will definitely serve as an inspiration for the next generation of educators, and prepare the necessary skills for young learners to successfully compete in the future. – Sandra Okita – Department of Math, Science and Technology, Teachers College, Columbia University.
