A complex and fascinating question is why do humans have such strong emotional reactions and human connections to art? Why do viewers become scared, even haunted for days, by a movie monster they know doesn't exist? Why do humans become enthralled by distorted figures and scenes that aren't realistic? Why do viewers have emotional attachments to comic book characters? The answer lies in that, while humans know art is human made artifice, they view and decipher art using the same often nonconscious methods that they use to view and decipher reality. Looking at how we perceive reality shows us how we perceive art, and looking at how we perceive art helps show us how we perceive reality. Written by the prominent art historian and philosopher Cycleback, this book is a concise introduction to understanding art perception, covering key psychological, cognitive science, physiological and philosophical concepts.

The author is a criminologist, crime analyst, and former graft-buster who highlights the evils of graft and crime, how to detect, deter and measure it, and offers solutions to curb and prevent it. Various criminological theories are discussed as we get introduced to, in an easy to understand and unbiased manner, the real situation of corruption and crime in Malaysia. Corruption and crime in Malaysia provides the glaring instances of corruption investigations and prosecutions amongst public servants and politicians involving famous cases such as 1MDB, SRC, FELDA scandals, Tabung Haji, Sabah Water scandal and the issues of money laundering, assets declaration, political donation, kleptocracy, polygraph testing and the general election. This book provides insight into causes of crime, its criminals and victims such as delinquency, drug smuggling, addiction, human trafficking, terrorism and the various punishments for such crimes. The apex of any fight against corruptions and crime has to do with ‘tone at the top’ and the political integrity amongst all political leaders and public servants. The need is for all high-level principles of integrity and transparency in governance. People see corruption and crime at the highest levels taking place without anyone being prosecuted whilst the whistle-blowers are in fact punished. Indeed this book is most welcomed at this pivotal time of our rakyat of the gravity of where we are now but more importantly it also tells how we can find hope in making it right – it is not too late if we act now.

Durer's Devices: Beyond the Projective Model of Pictures is a collection of papers that discusses the nature of picture making and perception. One paper presents a perceptual theory of pictorial representation in which cultural and historical options in styles of depiction that appear to be different are actually closely related perceptually. Another paper discusses pictorial functions and perceptual structures including pictorial representation, perceptual theory, flat canvass, and the deep world. One paper suggests that perception can be more a matter of information "make up" than "pick up." Light becomes somewhat informative and the eye, correspondingly, becomes less or more presumptive. Another paper notes that human vision is transformed by our modes of representation, that image formation can be essentially incomplete, false, or misleading (primarily as regards dramatic performance and pictorial representation). One paper makes three claims that: (1) the blind have untapped depiction abilities; (2) haptics, involving the sense of touch, have an intuitive sense of perspective; and (3) depiction is perceptual based on graphic elements and pictorial configurations. The collection is suitable for psychologists, physiologists, psychophysicists, and researchers in human perception or phenomenology.

"The chief business of twentieth-century philosophy" is "to reckon with twentieth-century history," claimed R. G. Collingwood. In this remarkable collection of essays, Frank Ankersmit demonstrates the prescience of that remark and goes a long way toward meeting its challenge. Responding to the work of Hayden White, Arthur Danto, and Hans-Georg Gadamer, he examines such issues as the difference between historical representation and artistic expression, the status of metaphor in historical description, and the relation of postmodernism to historicism. Ankersmit's fluent grasp of European thought and his ability to incorporate concepts from literary theory, art history, the philosophy of science, and political thought into his analyses assure that this collection will interest readers throughout the humanities. This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press's mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893, Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology. This title was originally published in 1994.

The foundations of aesthetics, the arts, and art education have been re-examined in recent years in light of the resurgence of scientific aesthetics as a research discipline; the development of contemporary cognitive science encompassing aspects of computer science, psychology, philosphy, linguistics, and so on; and the advances of neuroscience.

A historical study of human attention and its volatile role in modern Western culture, this book argues that the ways in which we look at or listen to anything result from changes in the nature of perception that originated in the 19th century.

This book traces the significance that the modulations of sensory perception have had for thinking about aesthetics and art in the last two and a half centuries. Beyond a discussion of the philosophical significance of beauty, or of the puzzle of aesthetic representation, aesthetics is conceived broadly as a means of describing our relationship to the world in terms of the habits of perception, and indeed the overturning of these habits, as in the modernist aesthetic of defamiliarisation. In the light of the ideas of the contemporary German aesthetic theorist, Wolfgang Welsch, this book offers the first discussion of the theory and practice of art that operates at the poles of perception: sensory experience that exceeds conceptual organisation, and the imperceptible, or what Welsch calls the 'anaesthetic'. These seemingly opposite poles have many parallels: a comparable indeterminacy of meaning and a similar challenge to representation, but also a shared focus on the habits and modulations of sensory perception and a similar interrogation of the boundary between art and that which surrounds it. The author applies the categories discussed to art practice, in particular to the theatre of Peter Handke, Samuel Beckett and Heiner Müller.

Many observers of the world scene in recent decades have raised questions about the future of Western Civilization, and the United States as the foremost exemplar. They see us locked in tangles of inconsistent intentions and self contradictory efforts to remedy growing political and environmental problems. This development may be an inevitable consequence of the evolution of first principles which deteriorate in a civilization as their implications are drawn out over time. The process is one in which people behaving to maximise individual and social purposes competitively reinterpret their perceptions of reality until the culture stagnates from a deficiency of common purpose.
