A Postmodern Quest to Reconstruct Human Ties: A Nostalgic Desire for Reality in an Era of Simulation in Red Birds by Muhammad Hanif

Bushra Shaukat
This is a quest to reconstruct human ties and a desired past and reality in an era of simulation by a well-known author, Muhammad Hanif in his text Red Birds.  ...  The theoretical framework of this research is Jean Baudrillard's theory of simulation which was used as a lens for the analysis of war-stricken, displaced people who are forced to live in camps, about  ...  In this postmodern era, all humans need is reconstruction. This text also sheds light on "A postmodern quest to reconstruct human ties, which they have lost in this era of simulations.  ...

"What's HIDD'n in the HADD?"

Anders Lisdorf
2007 Journal of Cognition and Culture  
While it is expressed differently in different authors, they all agree that some sort of hyperactive agency detection is a basic function of human cognition, which is what Justin Barrett has called the  ...  And isn't it a bit much to ask of one cognitive function to be the origin of religious belief?  ...  Religion is considered a by-product of human cognitive functions.  ...

Hauntology and Cognition: Questions of Knowledge, Pasts and Futures

Edyta Lorek-Jezińska, Katarzyna Więckowska
2017 Theoria et Historia Scientiarum  
Referring predominantly to Jacques Derrida's Spectres de Marx (1993), we discuss the ways in which the spectral turn has led to a "cognitive crisis" of sorts by radically questioning the existing procedures  ...  This article presents the major aspects of hauntology, highlighting the impact of spectrality studies on contemporary redefinitions of knowledge and cognition.  ...  Katarzyna Marak's article turns to the haunting medium of computer games to analyse the relationship between spectres and traumatic past in Layers Of Fear (2016), a story-oriented walking simulator.  ...

Authoring tangible interactive narratives using cognitive hyperlinks

Theresa Tanenbaum, Karen Tanenbaum, Magy Seif El-Nasr, Marek Hatala
2010 Proceedings of the Intelligent Narrative Technologies III Workshop on - INT3 '10  
We put forth the notion of "cognitive hyperlinks": a design technique that we believe has utility for the authors of future interactive narratives.  ...  Creating content for different forms of interactive narratives requires a different set of skills and techniques than writing noninteractive stories.  ...  Various approaches to this task have attempted to model the creative processes of human authors [4, 31] , to simulate worlds in which stories can occur [12, 16] , and to reduce narrative sequences to  ...

Intuitive Conceptions of Dead Agents' Minds: The Natural Foundations of Afterlife Beliefs as Phenomenological Boundary

Jesse Bering
2002 Journal of Cognition and Culture  
The ndings are interpreted according to simulation constraints -because it is epistemologically impossible to know what it is like to be dead, individuals will be most likely to attribute to dead agents  ...  Such a model argues that it is natural to believe in life after death and social transmission serves principally to conceptually enrich (or degrade) intuitive conceptions of the afterlife.  ...  Cognitive developmentalists have long speculated on the role of innate knowledge in human ontogeny.  ...

Cognitive Science of Religion: What Is It and Why Is It?

Justin L. Barrett
2007 Religion Compass  
Cognitive Science of Religion brings theories from the cognitive sciences to bear on why religious thought and action is so common in humans and why religious phenomena take on the features that they do  ...  The field is characterized by a piecemeal approach, explanatory non-exclusivism, and methodological pluralism.  ...  They used a story recall design and two transmission designs that involved the telling and re-telling of stories.  ...

Cognitive Contagion: Thinking with and through Theatre

Amy Cook
2019 Gestalt Theory  
Theories from cognitive science of embodied cognition make clear that making sense of theatre is a full-bodied affair.  ...  We come together to hear and tell stories because it is moving, both in the literal and the figurative sense: it changes us.  ...  Just last year, I saw a performance by the UK's Forced Entertainment that defied my ability to make a story or even make much sense, but I laughed and knew I was being given a view of how to see human  ...

Cognitive Computation sans Representation [chapter]

Paul Schweizer
2017 Philosophical Studies Series  
Hence 'content' is at most a convenient meta-level gloss, projected from the outside by human theorists, which itself can play no role in cognitive processing.  ...  To the extent that semantic content may appear to play a role in behaviour, it must be syntactically encoded within the system, and just as in a standard computational artefact, so too with the human mind  ...  have no need for a semantical 'ghost in the machine'.  ...

The Fundamental Tools, and Possibly Universals, of Human Social Cognition [chapter]

Bertram F. Malle
2008 Handbook of Motivation and Cognition Across Cultures  
Human language is the best vehicle to achieve such acts of sharing, as in disclosure, gossip, and story telling.  ...  However, to triumph over this darker side, humans can only nurture their capacities to be cognitively engaged and emotionally moved by others, to appreciate and simulate their distinct mental states, and  ...  9 For information on all Academic Press publications visit our web site at Typeset by Charon Tec Ltd., A Macmillan Company.  ...

Convergent minds: the evolution of cognitive complexity in nature

Russell Powell, Irina Mikhalevich, Corina Logan, Nicola S. Clayton
2017 Interface Focus  
In this paper we shall explore the complex relationships between memory and human experience, including through a series of novels 'The Moustachio Quartet' that can be read in any order.  ...  Furthermore we shall question the notion that mental time travel is a uniquely human construct, and argue that some of the best evidence for the evolution of mental time travel comes from our distantly  ...  This hypothesis posits that a crucial function of the brain is to use information gleaned from past experience to simulate a series of future scenarios and in so doing allow us not only to juxtapose a  ...

Creative gadget design in fictions

Boyang Li, Mark O. Riedl
2011 Proceedings of the 8th ACM conference on Creativity and cognition - C&C '11  
We surveyed five volumes of Doraemon and identified 9 cognitive strategies of gadget creation, unified in a 5-step process.  ...  Science-fiction and fantasy stories often contain objects never envisioned previously. Inventing gadgets like lightsabers or mythical creatures like griffins is a creative task.  ...  Simulating the human ability to write stories has long been an objective of AI, and some storytelling systems are considered as creative [5, 11] .  ...
