Confini sfumati. I problemi dell'arte, le soluzioni della percezione

“Un giorno, a una esposizione di arte concettuale al big apple Cultural middle, vidi un’opera costituita da un normale tavolo su cui erano posati alcuni libri. I libri erano di filosofi come Wittgenstein e Carnap, Ayer e Reichenbach, Tarski e Russell.
Si sarebbe potuto trattare del tavolo del mio studio, visto che period sufficientemente anonimo da poter essere ridotto a una semplice superficie da lavoro e i libri posati sopra erano dello stesso tipo di quelli che consultavo spesso consistent with il mio lavoro”. Questo è il rompicapo – e insieme il paradosso – che attraversa l’arte contemporanea così come l’ontologia dell’arte: il tavolo con sopra i libri al big apple Cultural middle è considerato un’opera d’arte, mentre lo stesso oggetto, un tavolo con sopra libri di filosofia, nel mio appartamento sulla 119vesima strada, a brand new York, è e rimane un semplice tavolo. Com’è potuto accadere che los angeles distinzione, classica, tra opere d’arte e oggetti comuni sia stata abbandonata? In un mondo in cui l. a. bellezza è merce sempre più rara, le opere d’arte paiono essere ovunque.
Ma sarà davvero così?

Mechanisms of transmission are identified which translate intergroup dynamics to individual group members. However, individual differences in susceptibility to such transmissions are believed to explain why there are variations in the expressions of prejudice despite similar social influences. Several chapters in this book will pick up on the potential that Duckitt identifies for such theoretical integration. Overview of this Book Perhaps the clearest message that emerges from the above review is that prejudice and racism are multi-level phenomena that include individual, cognitive, group, and societal/cultural levels of analysis.

For example, in what way can a personality approach to prejudice be reconciled with models with a group-based and institutional focus? , at times of war) what implications does this have for the personality view? How does a group perspective account for stability in authoritarianism and therefore prejudice? How does the cognitive perspective deal with evidence that the use of stereotypes is not always associated with cognitively efficient outcomes? How does the discursive approach deal with individual subjectivity and accountability in everyday and formal talk around ‘race’ and difference?

From this perspective, language is not simply the product of cognition, a medium through which to study the contents of the mind. Rather, language itself is the instrument of thought and therefore has no meaning independent of the context in which it is used. Consequently, on both philosophical and practical grounds that are elaborated in the chapter itself, discursive psychologists reject the experimental method and associated techniques such as surveys, attitude scales, and questionnaires. , media, parliament).
