  • Turnspits and Other Malenky Machines: Laziness and Cowardice in
           Burgess’s

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance.One of the arguably most famous twentieth-century literary minors freed from external guidance is Anthony Burgess’s fifteen-year-old antihero Alex, who steals, rapes, and murders his way through an almost lawless society; gets imprisoned and subjected to drug-induced Skinnerian conditioning; and finally regains his psychological and physical freedom to steal, rape, and murder but ultimately changes his ways. About A Clockwork Orange,2the short novel that tells Alex’s tale, Burgess once said that “the theme is true, the central theme is very important ... Read More

  • A New Interpretation of the Essence of Aesthetic Experience: From the
           Perspective of Cognitive Neuroaesthetics and Aesthetic Anthropology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Aesthetic experience is one of the basic concepts of modern aesthetics, and discussion about it spans the entire twentieth century. However, many controversies exist over how to understand it. Beginning with the concept of John Dewey, analytical aestheticians have long been plagued by the tangled relationship between aesthetic experience and the definition of art, as demonstrated by the analysis conducted by Noël Carroll and Richard Shusterman on aesthetic experience. Carroll believes that there are multiple dilemmas in the dialectical relationship between unity and fragmentation, aesthetic or nonaesthetic anti-aesthetics, and between the perception of objective aesthetic attributes and the projection of subjective ...

  • G. H. Mead: Socially Structured Aesthetic Experiences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Traditionally the starting point or focus is on the individual: either the artist or the object or the performance or the audience. With George Herbert Mead (1863–1931), the least known of the big-four American pragmatists, we can take a different tack: we can start with what is socially given among these traditional avenues. In other words, we begin not with the standpoint of the individual but with the premise that the individual belongs to a social structure. What this amounts to is a communicative understanding of the arts; music, dance, theater, poetry, and film (movies) will be my primary examples. Mead illustrates his social psychology or social behaviorism or, if I may call it, phenomenology, with music ... Read More

  • The Dehumanization of Architecture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From its beginnings up to the present day, modern architecture has faced a problem that even its sympathizers have found hard to ignore. Briefly stated, the problem is this: modern buildings do not easily harmonize with other buildings.1 Their proximity to other buildings, including buildings that are also modern, rarely results in a beautiful whole, such as a beautiful street or a beautiful square—let alone a beautiful city. The configuration of buildings shown in Figure 1 is representative in this respect.Superficially, the reason for the lack of harmony is that modern buildings appear to have been designed with no regard for their environment. Hence, they have been described as “uncivil,” “selfish,” and ... Read More

  • Onstage Emotion as Imagination

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The following scene is from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (scene 1, act 5):In this scene, Romeo learns of Juliet’s death, decides to kill himself, and buys poison from an apothecary. The actor playing the role of Romeo should portray Romeo’s emotions, such as sadness, grief, or hopelessness, and make audiences aware that he has decided to die. In terms of how actors portray a character’s emotions, a popular emotionalist position posits that good actors should re-create or re-experience their characters’ emotions or the emotions fitting their characters’ circumstances.1 Thus, to succeed in portraying Romeo’s emotional experiences and behaviors, the actor should experience similar emotional states. In other ... Read More

  • Fantasy and Adult Development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Fantasy is typically associated with the creation of a metaphor, emblem, or suggestion. Robert Crossly, however, urges us to discipline our view of fantasy by using definition, denotation, and precision. This is particularly important in light of the considerable amount of fantasy commercialization that delimits “rational discourse and critical questioning.”1 Such commercial motives appear in much of today’s art, video, and film and act to detour fantasy from its purest form, whereby it inspires creativity, vision, and abstract thinking by the individual. Indeed, restrictive fantasy curbs personalized imagination, thus constraining ideas of what is versus what could be. As such, fantasy that only engages what is ... Read More

  • Pedagogy, Hyperreality, and Agency— To Sound Out Education Effects
           Ascribed to a Video Game

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The digitization of societies is promoted from all sides, from the highest levels of policy-making down. Thus, the annual World Government Summit gathers leading government officials, thought leaders, policy makers, and private sector entrepreneurs from all over the world “to engage in a thought-provoking and future-focused dialogue that will shape the future of governments and help improve the lives of citizens across the world.”1 In this context, rapid digitization appears as a relatively new phenomenon and is valued in terms of its contribution to human progress: “Digitization has fundamentally altered the way we live, businesses operate, governance is undertaken, and has enabled the state of hyper-connectivity ...
