Computer Games and New Media Cultures by , Book Resume:

Digital gaming is today a significant economic phenomenon as well as being an intrinsic part of a convergent media culture in postmodern societies. Its ubiquity, as well as the sheer volume of hours young people spend gaming, should make it ripe for urgent academic enquiry, yet the subject was a research backwater until the turn of the millennium. Even today, as tens of millions of young people spend their waking hours manipulating avatars and gaming characters on computer screens, the subject is still treated with scepticism in some academic circles. This handbook aims to reflect the relevance and value of studying digital games, now the subject of a growing number of studies, surveys, conferences and publications. As an overview of the current state of research into digital gaming, the 42 papers included in this handbook focus on the social and cultural relevance of gaming. In doing so, they provide an alternative perspective to one-dimensional studies of gaming, whose agendas do not include cultural factors. The contributions, which range from theoretical approaches to empirical studies, cover various topics including analyses of games themselves, the player-game interaction, and the social context of gaming. In addition, the educational aspects of games and gaming are treated in a discrete section. With material on non-commercial gaming trends such as ‘modding’, and a multinational group of authors from eleven nations, the handbook is a vital publication demonstrating that new media cultures are far more complex and diverse than commonly assumed in a debate dominated by concerns over violent content.

La inteligencia migratoria by Joseba Achotegui Book Resume:

He aquí una serie de estrategias emocionales, físicas y sociales para resistir y salir adelante en los contextos difíciles que viven los inmigrantes el día de hoy. Un mundo en el que los muros y las barreras que afectan a los inmigrantes y sus familias son cada vez más altos y más peligrosos de cruzar. Este libro ofrece una valiosa ayuda ante las situaciones de miedo, soledad e indefensión en respuesta a ese sufrimiento, al que hace unos años el autor denominó «Síndrome de Ulises» –en recuerdo del héroe griego que padeció también lo indecible lejos de sus seres queridos–. El libro plantea, de la misma manera, consejos que le van a resultar de gran utilidad a las personas inmigrantes, desplazadas y refugiadas para que puedan remontar, superar las adversidades y desarrollar una actitud resiliente.

Robot 53 by Vittorio Curtoni Book Resume:

RIVISTE - Con racconti di Ian McDonald (Premio Hugo 2007), Ruth Nestvold, Franco Forte, Enrica Zunic, interviste con Robert Silverber e Will Smith, saggi su Fruttero e Lucentini, la fantascienza inglese, Futurama Diceva Arthur Clarke che una tecnologia sufficientemente avanzata è indistinguibile dalla magia. Ian McDonald con il racconto lungo La moglie del djinn – Premio Hugo 2007 – ha dato la migliore dimostrazione di questo aforisma, raccontando una fiaba che è anche un racconto di fantascienza, nell’ambientazione affascinante dell’India del futuro, in cui mito e tradizioni si mescolano con le meraviglie della tecnologia, e il livello di realtà di dèi e demoni si fonde e confonde con la virtualità delle intelligenze artificiali, in una storia senza tempo. E invece è poco il tempo a disposizione degli agenti morphi nel racconto – selezionato per il Best of 2007 – Uscire senza salvare di Ruth Nestvold. E non basta mai neppure alla dottoressa Ain di Enrica Zunić che da sola, una persona alla volta, combatte contro la brutalità della guerra, difendendone le vittime con tutta la sua umanità. E poi la storia della fantascienza da vari punti di vista: l’intervista col grande protagonista, Robert Silverberg; l’evoluzione della fantascienza inglese; e la carriera fantastica delle due persone che nel bene e nel male hanno plasmato la fantascienza in Italia: Fruttero e Lucentini.

El mal y la gracia by Leonardo Rodríguez Duplá Book Resume:

Kant publicó, en 1793, La religión dentro de los límites de la mera razón, su escrito más importante sobre filosofía de la religión. En esta obra exponía sus ideas sobre la "religión natural", la única doctrina religiosa en que se puede usar la razón en sí misma, sin apelar a la autoridad de la revelación. El método elegido por Kant consiste en averiguar en qué medida los contenidos dogmáticos del cristianismo y las enseñanzas de la Biblia pueden ser reconstruidos y asumidos por la razón autónoma. Procediendo de este modo, Kant llegará a proponer dobletes racionales de muchos de los contenidos de la religión positiva sometidos a examen.Durante mucho tiempo, la religión natural kantiana ha sido vista con suspicacia por los estudiosos de la obra del gran pensador prusiano. En particular, las objeciones vertidas contra su teoría del mal radical y su concepción de la gracia han dificultado considerablemente la recepción de este aspecto de la filosofía kantiana. El propósito de esta obra es mostrar la coherencia interna de la religión natural y su encaje armónico en el proyecto crítico kantiano.

El sujeto crítico by Hno. Mora, Diego Andrés, FSC Book Resume:

Hannah Arendt es, sin lugar a dudas, una de las pensadoras paradigmáticas del siglo XX. Su comprensión de la condición humana en el contexto más oscuro de la modernidad, la II Guerra Mundial, suscitó apasionantes debates tanto en el mundo de la academia como en el ambiente de lo que algunos denominan la Realpolitk. El presente texto quiere aprovechar la potencia de su obra, estableciendo algunas discusiones que oscilan entre lo moral – el origen del mal -, lo político – la responsabilidad política que cabe a las sociedades modernas – y lo cognitivo – relacionado con la emergencia de subjetividades críticas o acríticas -. Para ello recuperaremos a Arendt en diálogo con otros dos pensadores eminentemente modernos, como lo son Kant y Weber, que más que dar origen a su pensamiento, permiten historizar su reflexión en un sentido más pleno.

Identity by Francis Fukuyama Book Resume:

The New York Times bestselling author of The Origins of Political Order offers a provocative examination of modern identity politics: its origins, its effects, and what it means for domestic and international affairs of state In 2014, Francis Fukuyama wrote that American institutions were in decay, as the state was progressively captured by powerful interest groups. Two years later, his predictions were borne out by the rise to power of a series of political outsiders whose economic nationalism and authoritarian tendencies threatened to destabilize the entire international order. These populist nationalists seek direct charismatic connection to “the people,” who are usually defined in narrow identity terms that offer an irresistible call to an in-group and exclude large parts of the population as a whole. Demand for recognition of one’s identity is a master concept that unifies much of what is going on in world politics today. The universal recognition on which liberal democracy is based has been increasingly challenged by narrower forms of recognition based on nation, religion, sect, race, ethnicity, or gender, which have resulted in anti-immigrant populism, the upsurge of politicized Islam, the fractious “identity liberalism” of college campuses, and the emergence of white nationalism. Populist nationalism, said to be rooted in economic motivation, actually springs from the demand for recognition and therefore cannot simply be satisfied by economic means. The demand for identity cannot be transcended; we must begin to shape identity in a way that supports rather than undermines democracy. Identity is an urgent and necessary book—a sharp warning that unless we forge a universal understanding of human dignity, we will doom ourselves to continuing conflict.

Jane Jensen by Anastasia Salter Book Resume:

In the 1990s, the Personal Computer (or PC) was on the rise in homes, and with it came new genres of play. Yet most of the games in these new genres featured fantasylands or humorous science fiction landscapes with low stakes and little to suggest the potential of the PC as a serious space for art and play. Jane Jensen's work and landmark Gabriel Knight series brought a new darkness and personality to PC gaming, offering a first powerful glimpse of what games could be as they came of age. As an author and designer, Jensen brought her approach as a designer-writer hybrid to the forefront of game design, with an approach to developing environments through detailed research to make game settings come to life, an attention to mature dilemmas and complex character development, and an audience-driven vision for genres reaching beyond the typical market approaches of the gaming industry. With a brand new interview with Jensen herself, Anastasia Salter provides the first ever look Jensen's impact and role in advancing interactive narrative and writing in the game design process.

Happiness--Found in Translation by Tim Lomas Book Resume:

A beautifully illustrated dictionary of words from around the world that describe experiences of happiness for which there are no equivalents in the English language. Have you ever had a feeling that you couldn't quite describe because there was no word in English that captured it? Our ability to fully experience moments of joy in our lives can be limited by the words at our disposal. In this magical book, psychologist Tim Lomas surveys words from around the world to help readers put their finger on feelings of happiness that before might have lingered for only a moment in their mind's eye before disappearing. The ideal gift for language lovers, or for anyone looking for a megadose of pure joy, Happiness--Found in Translation features such "untranslatable" words as: Bazodee: A Creole (Trinidad and Tobago) word to describe a dizzy and dazed happiness, a bewildered, discombobulated joy. Charmolypi: A Greek word for the sad, joy-making sorrow when happiness and sadness intermingle. Wú wéi: A Chinese term for natural, spontaneous, and effortless action, skilfully flowing with the currents of life. Happiness--Found in Translation gives readers access to the great happiness that the world's languages have to offer.

Psychology and the Classics by Jeroen Lauwers,Hedwig Schwall,Jan Opsomer Book Resume:

While the field of classics has informed and influenced the early developments of the field of psychology, these two disciplines presently enjoy fewer fruitful cross-fertilizations than one would expect. This book shows how the study of classics can help psychologists anchor their scientific findings in a historical, literary and philosophical framework, while insights of contemporary psychology offer new hermeneutic methods and explanations to classicists. This book is the first to date to offer a wide-ranging overview of the possibilities of marrying contemporary trends in psychology and classical studies. Advocating a critical dialogue between both disciplines, it offers novel reflections on psychotherapy, ancient philosophy, social psychology, literature and its theory, historiography, psychoanalysis, tragedy, the philosophy of mind, linguistics and reception. With twenty contributions by specialists in different fields, it promotes the combination of classical and psychological perspectives, and demonstrates the methods and rewards of such an endeavour through concrete case studies. This pioneering book is thus intended for all readers who seek inspiration for their readings, research, or therapeutic practice.

Here to teach you the essential skills of player-centric game design is one of the industry’s leading authorities, who offers a first-hand look into the process, from initial concept to final tuning. Now in its second edition, this updated classic reference by Ernest Adams offers a complete and practical approach to game design, and includes material on concept development, gameplay design, core mechanics, user interfaces, storytelling, and balancing. In an easy-to-follow approach, Adams analyzes the specific design challenges of all the major game genres and shows you how to apply the principles of game design to each one. You’ll learn how to: Define the challenges and actions at the heart of the gameplay. Write a high-concept document, a treatment, and a full design script. Understand the essentials of user interface design and how to define a game’s look and feel. Design for a variety of input mechanisms, including the Wii controller and multi-touch iPhone. Construct a game’s core mechanics and flow of resources (money, points, ammunition, and more). Develop appealing stories, game characters, and worlds that players will want to visit, including persistent worlds. Work on design problems with engaging end-of-chapter exercises, design worksheets, and case studies. Make your game accessible to broader audiences such as children, adult women, people with disabilities, and casual players. “Ernest Adams provides encyclopedic coverage of process and design issues for every aspect of game design, expressed as practical lessons that can be immediately applied to a design in-progress. He offers the best framework I’ve seen for thinking about the relationships between core mechanics, gameplay, and player—one that I’ve found useful for both teaching and research.” — Michael Mateas, University of California at Santa Cruz, co-creator of Façade

La Divina Comedia by Dante Alighieri Book Resume:

La Divina comedia es un poema escrito por Dante Alighieri. Se considera que fue escrito entre 1304 y 1321, fecha del fallecimiento del poeta. Es la creación más importante de su autor y una de las obras fundamentales de la transición del pensamiento medieval (teocentrista) al renacentista (antropocentrista). Es considerada la obra maestra de la literatura italiana y una de las cumbres de la literatura universal. Cada una de sus partes, o cánticas (Infierno, Purgatorio y Paraíso), está dividida en cantos, cada parte consta de treinta y tres cantos, más el canto introductorio suman 100 cantos en total. Cada canto fue compuesto por estrofas de tres versos endecasílabos o terza rima, que se dice él mismo inventó (tercetos).El poema se ordena en función del simbolismo del número tres, que evoca la Santísima Trinidad (el Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu Santo), el equilibrio y la estabilidad, y el triángulo, las tres proposiciones que componen el silogismo, se sumaba al cuatro, que representaba los cuatro elementos: Tierra, aire, fuego y agua, dando como resultado el número siete, como siete son los pecados capitales. Finalmente, el Infierno está dividido en nueve círculos, el Purgatorio en siete y el Paraíso queda formado por nueve esferas que giran como los planetas en torno al sol.Toda la obra está llena de símbolos que remiten al conocimiento y al pensamiento medievales; religión, astronomía, filosofía, matemáticas, óptica, etc; encarnan en personajes, lugares y acciones.
