Barry Molloy, Marina Milić
2018 Open Archaeology

Wonder and devotion : imagery and sacred objects in Dominican writing, 1215-1311 [article]

Julian Vesty, University Of Canterbury
2016
This thesis aims to trace categorisations of sacred objects in Dominican writing, seeing how the image was treated differently from relics, the idols of 'pagans', and the consecrated Eucharist.  ...  Relics and the Eucharist could be 'spiritualised', evoking personal devotion as well as working marvellous wonders.  ...  Wonder and Devotion Respect for sacred objects was also related to another theme in Dominican analysis -the moralised understanding of sacred wonders.  ...

Towards a Materialist Phenomenology of Wonder: Comments on Bendik-Keymer and Małecki

Urszula Lisowska
2020 Studia Philosophica Wratislaviensia  
For it is important to notice that Małecki's analysis presupposes a specific ontology of wonder-namely, he conceptualises wonder as an emotion, which, in turn, is construed as an object of natural sciences  ...  In any case, from the perspective of this methodology, the implicit initial commitment to one way of conceptualising wonder (e.g. as an emotion-an object of natural sciences) seems-if not hasty, then-unduly  ...

The Wonder of Data

Maggie MacLure
2013 Cultural Studies - Critical Methodologies  
The article considers the productive capacity for wonder that resides and radiates in data, or rather in the entangled relation of data-and-researcher.  ...  But the price paid for the ruin caused-to epistemic certainty or the comforts of a well-wrought coding scheme-is, after Massumi (2002, p. 19), the privilege of a headache.  ...  Lesley Saunders The wonder of objects has continued to take us to new places.  ...

Intellectual feeling, considered in this respect, is wonder. Wonder is the attitude which the emotional nature spontane¬ ously assumes in front of a world of objects.  ...  Wonder is the first and the final expression of the individual as it finds a universe over against it.” " Wonder is the emotion experienced before all objective orders what¬ ever.  ...

Amid a large body of scholarship, Arellano concentrates on the material objects that give rise to wonder in the novel.  ...  Arellano argues that García Márquez reverses the traditional trajectory of colonial objects of wonder when Melquíades travels with his display of technological items from the center to the periphery that  ...

Against Wonder

W.P. Małecki
2020 Studia Philosophica Wratislaviensia  
There are a growing number of publications arguing that if we had more wonder in social life, then its quality would be significantly improved, and that we therefore need an "ethics" or a "politics" of  ...  Second, wonder does potentially have a number of negative moral and politicaleffects, so social policies that put a premium on wonder may bring adverse consequences.  ...  What this means is that wonder makes us see a given object as a source of pleasure.  ...

1872 The Lancet  
Any animal may wonder or be surprised at the occurrence of any new or striking object, or at any great change in the appearance of any familiar object; but an animal never does feel wonder or astonishment  ...  If any new or striking object occurs in any of the physical trains of events, or any unusual change takes place in the general appearance of an object, we are asto- nished, we are surprised, we wonder.  ... 

Remarks on Itinerants

1837 Boston Medical and Surgical Journal  
The general appearance of the bowels, liver, Sic, was healthy-but on more minute investigation of the intestines, we found the jejunum affected with a species of the iliac passion, an introsusception.  ...  The abdominal muscles were removed in the usual manner, and a thorough examination of the viscera was made.  ...  By persons of better information, it was a wonder what his object could be, for he positively refused any remuneration.  ...

From Wild Fictions to Accurate Observation: Domesticating Wonder in Children's Literature of the Late Eighteenth Century [chapter]

Richard De Ritter

In turn, the affective state that these objects inspire is far from the kind of wonder that, in Stephen Greenblatt's words, 'depends upon a suspension or failure of categories' and leads to a moment of  ...  As Daston and Park argue, wonder was not expelled by an age of reason; rather it 'shifted its objects and altered its texture almost beyond recognition'. 28 In her reassessment the realist mode of the  ...

Feeling the Aesthetic: A Pluralist Sentimentalist Theory of Aesthetic Experience

Rasmus Rosenberg Larsen, David Sackris
2020 Estetika: The Central European Journal of Aesthetics International  
Jesse Prinz has recently proposed a reductionistic version of sentimentalist aesthetics, suggesting that it is the discrete feeling of wonder that makes an experience aesthetic.  ...  Contrasting Prinz's focus on a single emotion, we argue that an aesthetic experience is rudimentarily composed of a plurality of emotions.  ...  Wondering about Aesthetic Wonder The aim of this section is to offer objections to Prinz's theory, in particular, his emphasis on wonder as the foundation of aesthetic experience.  ...
