A couple of interesting new things
I’ve just received a copy of Image, Eye and Art in Calvino, a new book on “the relationship between the visual and the textual” in Italo Calvino, edited by Birgitte Grundtvig, Martin McLaughlin, and Lene Waage Petersen. Together with Frederik Stjernfelt and Olaf B. Paulson I wrote a chapter for the book on the neurobiology of poetic imagination. A quick glance at the book reveals it to be full of other interesting papers as well!
On a somewhat different note, yesterday’s NY Times Magazine had a long article by Jeffrey Rosen on the relation between neuroscience and the law, a recurrent theme here on the blog. I haven’t had time to read it yet, but I will be back later this week with some comments.
