Book Summary:

The authors believe that the most spiritual and powerful aspect of human nature is our faculty of attention. Our ability to see ourselves and how we behave is key to harmonizing the dissonance between our inner conversation and our outer conversation, and learning to love ourselves. They invite you to slow down, reflect, and design your experience with these practices.

Book Summary:

Originally published in 1902, this title was discovered as a manuscript after the author’s death and was published 4 years later. David Kay published articles on various subjects and was one of the sub-editors on the eighth edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica. After writing an article on mnemonics he became very interested in the subject of memory. He had already published a title in 1888, Memory: What It Is, and How to Improve It, and this volume was intended to build on that discussion. A great opportunity to read one of the early discussions on human memory.

Book Summary:

The Chronicles from The Art of Attention are about the scientific and aesthetic understanding of human emotion and they are a defense of the practice of psychotherapy as a private and honorable profession. Thirty years ago I began writing about the absent and the invisible as these related to experiences of loss and separation. This endeavor took me into an in-depth study of affect and script psychology and motivated me to apply my understanding of personality development with patients. I offer these Chronicles for psychotherapists as an encouragement along two pathways: first, to sustain attention on the emotional experience of patients so that the expression and motivational force of emotions and scripts becomes an orienting focus of treatment and second, to integrate drawing into talk therapy, that is, to add the act of looking to the act of listening by asking patients to draw about their lives. The Art of Attention contains four separate books that chronicle my years as a psychotherapist focused on stimulating affect and imagery to create consciousness by engaging patients in the creation of drawn images. In Book One I uncover some disguises of loss, both the necessary losses of illusions and separations and the unthinkable losses of violence and death. When there is loss, some run and hide under the covers, some paint their faces and wear pretty dresses, some wear uniforms that tell of important jobs and some no longer remember who they are. The grieving don't want to see or be seen in their grief, yet many still peek out between fingers with the hope that someone might notice their sadness. To hide but then to look again becomes a creative pattern of loss and repair. I am thinking of times when looking again stirs wordless scenes from an implicit past and fast forwards its echoes through a line of music, the empathy of a friend, a marvel in nature; some of the ways fallible, incomplete and bittersweet memories make their return in search of repair. The Chronicles may also appeal to lay readers interested in how emotion functions in everyday life.

Book Summary:

A fresh, creative introduction to theological ethics. Offering an imaginative approach through dialogue with theatrical theory and practice, Vander Lugt demonstrates a new way to integrate actor-oriented and action-oriented approaches to Christian ethics within a comprehensive theodramatic model. This model affirms that life is a drama performed in the company of God and others, providing rich metaphors for relating theology to everyday formation and performance in this drama. This book contains not only a fruitful exchange between theological ethics and theatre, but it also presents a promising method for interdisciplinary dialogue between theology and the arts that will be valuable for students and practitioners across many different fields.

Book Summary:

With the supposed shortening of our attention spans, what future is there for fiction in the age of the internet? Contemporary Fictions of Attention rejects this discourse of distraction-crisis which suggests that the future of reading is in peril, and instead finds that contemporary writers construct 'fictions of attention' that find some value in states or moments of inattention. Through discussion of work by a diverse selection of writers, including Joshua Cohen, Ben Lerner, Tom McCarthy, Ali Smith, Zadie Smith, and David Foster Wallace, this book identifies how fiction prompts readers to become peripherally aware of their own attention. Contemporary Fictions of Attention locates a common interest in attention within 21st-century fiction and connects this interest to a series of debates surrounding ethics, temporality, the everyday, boredom, work, and self-discipline in contemporary culture.

Book Summary:

A key property of neural processing in higher mammals is the ability to focus resources by selectively directing attention to relevant perceptions, thoughts or actions.

Neurobiology of Attention is the first encyclopedic volume to summarize the latest developments in attention research. An authoritative collection of over 100 chapters organized into thematic sections provides both broad coverage and access to focused, up-to-date research findings. This book presents a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary perspective on psychological, physiological and computational approaches to understanding the neurobiology of attention. Ideal for students, as a reference handbook or for rapid browsing, the book has a wide appeal to anybody interested in attention research. * Contains numerous quick-reference articles covering the breadth of investigation into the subject of attention * Provides extensive introductory commentary to orient and guide the reader * Includes the most recent research results in this field of study
