Are We Losing Our Abilities To Read Deeply?

Beyond self-inflicted attention deficits, people who cannot deep read — or who do not use and hence lose the deep-reading skills they learned — typically suffer from an attenuated capability to comprehend and use abstract reasoning. In other words, if you can’t, or don’t, slow down sufficiently to focus quality attention — what Wolf calls “cognitive patience” — on a complex problem, you cannot effectively think about it. – National Affairs

In recent decades, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Great Wolf Lodge water parks and more have emerged to compete for the attention — and money — of American families. – The New York Times

Why Should It Matter If You Know What You’re Listening To?

Our preconceived ideas about a composer or piece can keep us from listening with fresh ears. An intermezzo by the mighty Brahms? Before you hear a note, you may already have decided it’s great. – The New York Times

Why Our Brains Have Difficulty Sorting Fact From Fiction

Philosophers have long concerned themselves with what they call “the paradox of fiction”—why would we find imagined stories emotionally arousing at all? The answer is that most of our mind does not even realize that fiction is fiction, so we react to it almost as though it were real. – Nautilus

How Visual Images Change In The Internet Era

From our present experience of the internet, what changes might we expect? We are all André Malraux now. To create his “museum without walls,” an archive of images from around the world, begun in 1947, he had to collect and sift through thousands of photographs. Now anyone can readily compare any selection of works, setting them side-by-side. – Hyperallergic

Harnessing Hidden Complexity

As an expert in your field, of course you know each intricate detail about your idea or product. It can be difficult to distance yourself from the knowledge you possess. Understanding that the audience wants to know what you know is a great place to start. Just because you are an expert does not necessarily make you the best teacher. This is why professional athletes are not always effective coaches. Native speakers are not always the best foreign language teachers. The ability to take what you ...
