eBook (PDF): $0.00
“Thinking – a mental process, in which symbols or pictorial representations of objects, events, or actions are generated, transformed, or combined.” That, bizarrely, is apparently... More > an ‘official’, MODERN definition. I can only hope that by the time Scotty grinds me up, you will have deconstructed this sentence for yourselves and consigned it to the little round file on the floor. Here’s another: “Thinking is problem-solving.” Do people get PAID for this? Even pond-slime would not bother to learn a maze, if THIS is what was waiting for them at the end. But … spoiler!!! … there are no ‘mental processes’; there are no ‘pictorial representations’; there are no ‘symbols’ in the brain. EXCEPT in that one brief MOMENT BY MOMENT, the instant of generation-and-subjective-awareness-of each successive brief TINY ‘conscious’ event. But because those events make up our subjective world, we have taken for granted that THEY ARE OUR THINKING. They are not. ‘Thinking’ is something else entirely …< Less

More > statues of Buddha, burnt brick and mortar foundations, and lone eroding walls, starkly contrasted with small piles of rocks symbolize a spiritual reconstruction, reverence and respect for what happened so long ago. Time is illusion. What happened then, still affects us now. What we do now, has an effect on what happened in the past.< Less

An Eschatological Bestiary By Oz Hardwick

Prints in 3-5 business days
An Eschatological Bestiary admits to different foci. Recording descriptions of natural history and popular accounts of climate change and inequality, its faunal composition offers symbolic visions,... More > modern protest, and a complete exegetical interpretation of the dramatic rise of an apparently semi-permanent moral blank. Among its prime concerns and other sediments of stories are power relations and future events, their primary goal being to render the Big System unstable at a local level. To this end, words cut out of other sources serve to embody allegorical versions of imaginary animals in literature and art, providing chance significance to each animal’s common misconceptions. In addition to glacial analyses, therefore, this ‘sea text dream collection’ preserves a record (including tents) of data relating to prophetic processes in any town’s financial district, revealing the value of bad practice.< Less

Pindar’s epinikia were poems commissioned to celebrate athletic victories in the first half of the fifth century BCE. Drawing on the insights of interpretive anthropology and cultural history,... More > Leslie Kurke examines the odes as public performances which enact the reintegration of the athletic victor into his heterogeneous communities. These communities—the victor’s household, his aristocratic class, and his city—represent competing, sometimes conflicting interests, which the epinikian poet must satisfy to accomplish his project of reintegration. Kurke considers in particular the different modes of exchange in which Pindar’s poetry participated: the symbolic economy of the household, gift exchange between aristocratic houses, and the workings of monetary exchange within the city. Her analysis produces an archaeology of Pindar’s poetry, exposing multiple systems of imagery that play on different shared cultural models to appeal to the various segments of the poet’s audience.< Less
