Play anything : the pleasure of limits, the uses of boredom, and the secret of games
Bogost, Ian, author
New York : Basic Books, 
Life is not a game -- Everywhere, playgrounds -- Ironoia, the mistrust of things -- Fun isn't pleasure, it's novelty -- Play is in things, not in you -- From restraint to constraint -- The pleasure of limits -- The opposite of happiness -- Living with things.
"The gold standard of our culture is 'fun.' Companies want their offices to feel more playful, schools want learning to be entertaining, programmers want their products to feel as intuitive and addictive as playing Tetris or AngryBirds. Trying to make life like playing a game sounds like a good idea--who doesn't want to have fun while working or commuting, parenting or cleaning?--but what's often overlooked in the rush to make everything 'fun' is that games are hard. Playing a sport requires concentration, repetition, and physical pain; playing a musical instrument demands shockingly boring practice and patience; even playing video games requires hours and hours of study, determination, and drive. Making our ideas about 'play' sound a whole lot like 'work.' Where's the fun in that? In Play Anything, Ian Bogost--the Ivan Allen College Distinguished Chair in Media Studies and Professor of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology--shows that our common understanding of games--that they are always fun, and always juvenile--is dead wrong. And that that's a good thing, both for how we play and how we conduct our days"--

The three Christs of Ypsilanti
New York : New York Review Books, 2011
At Ypsilanti State Hospital in 1959, the social psychologist Milton Rokeach brought together three paranoid schizophrenics. The men had one thing in common: each believed himself to be Jesus Christ. Their meeting and the two years they spent in one another's company serves as the basis for an investigation into the nature of human identity, belief, and delusion.

Magical hymns from Roman Egypt : a study of Greek and Egyptian traditions of divinity
Bortolani, Ljuba Merlina, 1980- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
"This interdisciplinary study investigates the divine personas in the so-called magical hymns of the Greek magical papyri which, in a corpus usually seen as a significant expression of religious syncretism with strong Egyptian influence, were long considered to be the 'most authentically Greek' contribution. Fifteen hymns receive a line-by-line commentary focusing on religious concepts, ritual practice, language and style. The overarching aim is to categorise the nature of divinity according to its Greek or Egyptian elements, examining earlier Greek and Egyptian sources and religious-magical traditions in order to find textual or conceptual parallels. Are the gods of the magical hymns Greek or Egyptian in nature? Did the magical hymns originate in a Greek or Egyptian cultural background? The book tries to answer these questions and to shed light on the religious plurality and/or fusion of the two cultures in the treatment of divinity in the Greek magical papyri"--

Mind : a journey to the heart of being human
Siegel, Daniel J., 1957- author
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, 
"What is the mind? What is the experience of the self truly made of? How does the mind differ from the brain? Though the mind's contents--its emotions, thoughts, and memories--are often described, the essence of mind is rarely, if ever, defined. In this book, noted neuropsychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, uses his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to offer a definition of the mind that illuminates the how, what, when, where, and even why of who we are, of what the mind is, and what the mind's self has the potential to become. MIND takes the reader on a deep personal and scientific journey into consciousness, subjective experience, and information processing, uncovering the mind's self-organizational properties that emerge from both the body and the relationships we have with one another, and with the world around us. While making a wide range of sciences accessible and exciting--from neurobiology to quantum physics, anthropology to psychology--this book offers an experience that addresses some of our most pressing personal and global questions about identity, connection, and the cultivation of well-being in our lives,"--Amazon.com.

The believing brain : from ghosts and gods to politics and conspiracies--how we construct beliefs and reinforce them as truths

Shermer demonstrates how our brains selectively assess data in an attempt to confirm the conclusions (beliefs) we've already reached. Drawing on evolution, cognitive science, and neuroscience, he considers not only supernatural beliefs but political and economic ones as well.
