  • València — Sustainable Food World Capital. A Social Sciences
           Vision

    • Authors: Aida Vizcaíno Estevan; Tono Vizcaíno Estevan
      Abstract: The declaration of València as the World Sustainable Food Capital in 2017, based on the market-gardening system of l’Horta — an area girding the city, has put key subjects such as sustainable production and healthy eating on the public agenda. The process leading up to the declaration (which is in part a heritage-based project) has been fraught with contradictions and conflicts stemming from the city’s political, economic and identity dimensions. Examining this process from a Social Sciences angle is of value not only in
      drawing lessons but also for spawning debating forums in which solutions can be proposed.

  • The Objectification of European Identity in the Treaties and in European
           Institutions’ Declarations

    • Authors: Lluís Català Oltra
      Abstract: In recent decades the concepts of “nation” and “territorial identity” have undergone a transformation in terms of politics and academia, with a shift from traditionally dominant ethno-cultural concepts to others of a political-civic nature. The former tend to define identity through objective elements (language, history, territory, culture, traditions, etc.) while the latter take a more subjective approach (basically, ‘the will to be’). In this paper, we delve into this transformation in the case of European identity. To this end, we propose a qualitative and evolutionary approach that uses texts promoted by the EU (declarations and treaties), in which identity plays a relevant role. We carry out a content analysis that singles out those elements that have come to objectify the European identity (and, as a contrast, we look at those elements bearing on the identity of the Member States). While we identify an advance in the political-civil conception as a reflection of the general trend, culturallyoriented objective elements still remain in 21st Century texts. This reflects the need to publicly present an identity in construction as something naturalised, and as part of a reality built through
      the ages. For Europe the concepts with greatest presence are “European identity” (more frequent
      in reports and brief declarations), “European culture” and “common European heritage” (more
      common in the treaties). These are concepts that, in some sense, reflect a given reality.

  • Design Function in Innovation Processes

    • Authors: Anna Estany; Rosa M. Herrera
      Abstract: Some words emerge at a given moment to catalyse ideas and give new meaning to old terminology. Innovation and design are two such words. Innovation has traditionally been linked with the Applied Sciences, especially technology, whereas advances in the Pure
      Sciences tend to be termed discoveries, inventions, or creations. However, for decades now, innovation has been a leitmotiv in all fields of scientific knowledge in both the Pure and the Applied Sciences. Design has also emerged from the niche it once occupied for decades (and
      even centuries) at least insofar as its impact on the History of Science and of Philosophy is concerned. In fact, design’s introduction into the academic world has gone hand-in-hand with Art and its impact on our daily lives. This paper analyses innovation processes in both
      the Pure and the Applied Sciences to discover how far new design theories over the last few decades have influenced innovation in fields such as Epistemology and Technology. We focus on Design Epistemology and methodological innovation, specifically in connection
      with design simulations and methodological models. We also look at the underlying design technologies and the key role they play in innovation processes.

  • Naturalist Methods in the Sociology of Creation: The Case Against
           Reductionism

    • Authors: Dafne Muntanyola-Saura
      Abstract: The Sociology of Culture has much to say when it comes to the ever-changing general consensus on what constitutes legitimate culture and definitions of creativity. The naturalistic studies
      on cognition in social and cognitive sciences show this empirically (Bourdieu, 1979: Becker, 1982, 2002; Sennett, 2012; Author, 2014). Creative cognition is part of an institutional context. However, the influential culturalist branch of cognitive sociology (CCS) reduces creativity to
      a cognitivist psychological level (Lizardo and Strand, 2010). We start from the conjecture that the Sociology of Culture can draw on the naturalistic paradigm of cognition to explain creativity without falling into reductionist or atomist positions. The authors take the diversity
      of theoretical-empirical proposals into account in identifying the starting points for focusing the debate at both the macro and micro levels. The body of the article comprises a literature review which, while not exhaustive, offers a full picture of the pragmatic and integrated models of creativity. The studies analysed present inter-subjective processes of creation
      and the transmission of variable legitimate criteria concerning cultural consumption such as categorisations, evaluations and aesthetic judgments. The sociological perspective offers scope for strengthening critical tools for examining creativity.

  • Cognitive Models for Gastronomic Creation and Innovation

    • Authors: David Casacuberta
      Abstract: Based on the reflections of super-chef Ferran Adrià and his team at el Bulli restaurant, this paper explores how certain creative mechanisms, techniques and procedures surrounding avant-garde gastronomy can be analysed from an enactivist model of cognition in order to:
      (1) understand creativity in the kitchen; (2) characterise culinary innovation processes; (3) establish whether some of these processes are general enough to be re-used in other fields and so broaden our theoretical understanding of the processes and mechanisms involved in creation and innovation. We present those features that are specific to gastronomy as a creative process to distinguish them from others that are generic enough to form part of a
      larger family of creative processes. The paper seeks to present new perspectives on both subject-specific and generic creation processes in haute cuisine.

  • What the #®¥§≠$@ is Creativity'

    • Authors: Alger Sans Pinillos; Jordi Vallverdú
      Abstract: Creativity is The Holy Grail of the Cognitive Sciences and it is very important for researchers in the Computer Sciences and AI fields. Although all attempts to explain and replicate intelligence have so far failed, the quest remains a key part of their research. This paper takes two innovative approaches. First, we see cognitive processes as involving rule-following
      and as flexible, even chaotic, heuristics. This first concept uses a multi-heuristic concept without any complexes as mixed-cognition. Second, we propose abduction which, though seldom employed in this specific debate, is nonetheless a good way to explore creativity. Using both strategies, along with analysis of specific human creativity cases, we suggest
      a new cognitive paradigm that is both more realistic and truthful than hitherto. The idea is to offer a new way to achieve more powerful, complex artificial reasoning systems.

  • Creativity, Humour, and Cognition

    • Authors: Mario Gensollen; Marc Jiménez-Rolland
      Abstract: This paper explores some aspects of the scientific study of creativity by focusing on intentional attempts to create instances of linguistic humour. We argue that this sort of creativity can be accounted for within an influential cognitive approach but that said framework is not a
      recipe for producing novel instances of humour and may even preclude them. We start by identifying three great puzzles that arise when trying to pin down the core traits of creativity, and some of the ways taken by Cognitive Studies in this quest. We then consider what we call ‘creative humour’, which exhibits the core features of the aforesaid creativity. We then explore how a key cognitive approach to human communication can account for creative humour.
      We end by drawing lessons and highlighting limitations to cognitive approaches to creativity.

  • Recipes for Happiness: a Proposal for Analysing the Moral Orientation of
           Actions and Emotions

    • Authors: Alberto Martín Pérez; José Antonio Rodríguez Díaz, José Luis Condom Bosch, Aitor Domínguez Aguayo
      Abstract: This paper draws up a proposal for analysing discourses on paths to happiness. Recipes promoted by the happiness industry are studied as moral guidelines for social action: imperative messages spread through the Internet seek to guide their recipients in their quest for happiness. In a field
      dominated by positive psychology, we approach happiness from a sociological perspective, which is to say as: an institutionalised social discourse; a form of social production; a socially-framed emotion. Research is based on systematic Internet observation and on quantitative and qualitative textual analysis procedures. We show how digital media in the ‘happiness’ field: (a) promotes recipes; (b) provides scientific legitimation for said recipes; (c) focuses on a generic individual as the recipient of the messages and as protagonist. A typology is proposed based on the meaning, nature and object of the actions that lead to happiness. Results show how recipes involve normative and moral orientations of actions and emotions: they indicate what to do and how to think and
      feel to be happy. Happiness as a moral obligation involves most concerns shaping the agenda of contemporary societies, with a strong emphasis on individualism and on a utilitarian understanding of social relations and the social environment.

  • Analysis of Affective Discourse in the Change Process of the Employment
           Relationship Model: Environment Management through Collective Bargaining

    • Authors: María Carmen Bericat Alastuey; José Luis Antoñanzas Laborda, Eva María Tomás del Río
      Abstract: This paper covers research whose goal was to analyse affective changes in the process of change in the labour relations model that was consolidated throughout the 1990s. Based on a case study, the focus was on the emotional content expressed by the protagonists in
      relation to this collective bargaining framework. In conducting the analysis, we used the wide range of procedures provided by Discourse Analysis (DA). Part of this analysis focused on the protagonists’ emotional management of the early stages of the negotiation. The results let us delve deeper into the affective nature of this process, thereby expanding the light shed by other theoretical and methodological perspectives on this change in the labour relations model.

  • Defining Depression: Endogenous Materialities, Exogenous Immaterialities

    • Authors: Javier García-Martínez
      Abstract: Definitions are narratives in action, implying a need to track down the ontology of what is defined. In
      this case, we explore the mutual tension and/or symbiosis (with consonant and dissonant spaces)
      arising from the definition of depression. We approach the term ‘depression’ as a controversial
      subject, mapping a comparison between lay and expert narratives on the malaise, and making
      use of digital ethnography as the methodology. A self-administered online open questionnaire was
      completed with the definitions of 29 lay respondents. In addition, expert narratives were gathered
      with the definitions of 9 health institutions’ web sites, and public mediation forums. Definitions
      echoed from both spaces, with splits between biological materiality and psychological-social
      immateriality, with a reiteration of the division between exogeneity and endogeneity, respectively.
      Here, the emotiveness of the subject can be seen as stemming from the sum of reductionisms
      and cumulative factors as to what depression is. Finally, we consider other possible ontologies
      of depression that either: (1) take socio-material assemblies into account or (2) follow the
      pragmatical turn, defining depression in action. This research opens new approaches towards
      identifying external materialities, shifting the blame from the diagnosis of the individual towards
      the mechanisms that spawn harmful relationships.

  • Emotional Confrontation and Public Deliberation on Paid Sex. The Struggle
           between Disgust and Shame.

    • Authors: Vanesa Saiz Echezarreta; Cristina  Peñamarin
      Abstract: In this paper, we address affective and motivational aspects in relation to the controversy, which can be articulated around a mediatised public issue. We are interested in how emotions are a part of the experience and definition of a phenomenon that is seen as intolerable and for
      which intervention is demanded and the strategic appeal to an affective repertoire in reaching a
      position on the issue. We analyse the systems of meaning and emotions mobilised in the current
      controversy about prostitution and trafficking of persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The goal here is to grasp how the perspectives involved employ emotional strategies in which basic affective dispositions and transitory emotions intersect, and how this affects deliberation on the issue. Discourses and stories, as well as defining and framing the emotions of the actors in the controversy furnish emotional experiences to their publics, encouraging them to incorporate
      certain rules of feeling that form part of the moral and ideological perspectives promoted. Methodologically, we use an ethnographic approach to follow the conflict and a socio-semiotic
      discourse analysis. Our case study covers two linked viral campaigns in social networks (Hola Putero and Hola Abolicionista). The goal is to reflect on the way in which setting and affective
      strategies hinder resolution of the issue.

  • Emotional Management in the Workplace of the Spanish Population.
           Quantitative Analysis through the Construction of an Emotional Quality
           Index at Work and its Link to Social Structure

    • Authors: María Cascales Mira
      Abstract: he organisation of work, located in the post-Fordist paradigm, stresses the emotional aspects of employee-client interaction processes. This emphasis arises from the shift in the productive structure towards growth in service activities in which interpersonal relationships are key factors. In this "new culture", the organisation is conceived as a ‘sentient’ environment and emotional work
      captures the interest of researchers and social scientists who analyse the role played by emotions
      in occupations and organisational culture (Zapf, 2002, Grandey 2000, 2015, Seymour and Sandiford
      2005, Bolton 2000, Wharton, 2009, Totterdell, and Holman, 2003). Most related research has focused on qualitative case studies of workers in the service sector (Steinberg and Figart, 1999) — an approach that limits the inferences one can make and hinders one in linking findings to the social
      structure. The aim of our research is to expand this field of analysis and explore the link between emotional management and social structure. That is why we used a quantitative methodology, for which purpose we built an Emotional Quality Index in the Workplace (EQIW), allowing us to measure the emotional quality of workers in Spain and analyse their relationship with the three
      key structural variables: social class; occupation; gender. Here, we used data from the European Working Conditions Survey (2015). The results show that there are significant differences in the emotional management of work by occupation, social class and gender, verifying that there is
      indeed a link between the EQIW and the social structure.
