Elf queens and holy friars : fairy beliefs and the medieval Church
Green, Richard Firth, 1943- author
Philadelphia, Pa. : University of Pennsylvania Press 2016
Believing in fairies -- Policing vernacular beliefs -- Incubi fairies -- Christ the changeling -- Living in fairyland.

"Taking as his starting point the assumption that the major cultural gulf in the Middle Ages was less between the wealthy and the poor than between the learned and the lay, Green explores the church's systematic demonization of fairies and infernalization of fairyland. He argues that when medieval preachers inveighed against the demons that they portrayed as threatening their flocks, they were in reality often waging war against fairy beliefs. The recognition that medieval demonology, and indeed pastoral theology, were packed with coded references to popular lore opens up a whole new avenue for the investigation of medieval vernacular culture. Elf Queens and Holy Friars offers a detailed account of the church's attempts to suppress or redirect belief in such things as fairy lovers, changelings, and alternative versions of the afterlife. That the church took these fairy beliefs so seriously suggests that they were ideologically loaded, and this fact makes a huge difference in the way we read medieval romance, the literary genre that treats them most explicitly. The war on fairy beliefs increased in intensity toward the end of the Middle Ages, becoming finally a significant factor in the witch-hunting of the Renaissance"--Book jacket.

The distracted mind : ancient brains in a high-tech world
Gazzaley, Adam, author
Cambridge, MA : MIT Press, [2016]
Interference -- Goals and cognitive control -- The brain and control -- Control limitations -- Variations and Fluctuations -- The psychology of technology -- The impact of constantly shifting our attention -- The impact of technology on diverse populations -- Why do we interrupt ourselves? -- Boosting control -- Modifying behavior.

Adam Gazzaley and Larry Rosen - a neuroscientist and a psychologist - explain why our brains aren't built for multitasking and suggest better ways to live in a high-tech world without giving up our modern technology. They explain that our brains are limited in their ability to pay attention. We don't really multitask but rather switch rapidly between tasks. Distractions and interruptions, often technology-related - referred to by the authors as interference - collide with our goal-setting abilities.

The vicarious brain, creator of worlds
Berthoz, A., author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2017
Prologue -- Introduction -- Part I. The vicarious act -- 1. The brain as a problem-solver -- 2. Perceiving and acting -- 3. The personal body, self, and identity -- 4. Vicariance and changing perspective -- Part II. Ontogenesis and plasticity -- 5. The stages of vicariance -- 6. Vicariance and brain plasticity -- Part III. Vicariance and sharing emotions -- 7. Sympathy and empathy -- 8. Vicarious emotion -- Part IV. Education -- 9. Vicarious learning -- Epilogue.

Groping around a familiar room in the dark, relearning to read after a brain injury, navigating a virtual landscape through an avatar: all are expressions of vicariance--when the brain substitutes one process or function for another. Alain Berthoz shows that this capacity allows humans to think creatively in an increasingly complex world.--

Collective memory and the historical past
Barash, Jeffrey Andrew, author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2016
There is one critical way we honor great tragedies: by never forgetting. Collective remembrance is as old as human society itself, serving as an important source of social cohesion, yet as Jeffrey Andrew Barash shows in this book, it has served novel roles in a modern era otherwise characterized by discontinuity and dislocation. Drawing on recent theoretical explorations of collective memory, he elaborates an important new philosophical basis for it, one that unveils important limitations to its scope in relation to the historical past. Crucial to Barash's analysis is a look at the radical transformations that the symbolic configurations of collective memory have undergone with the rise of new technologies of mass communication. He provocatively demonstrates how such technologies' capacity to simulate direct experience especially via the image actually makes more palpable collective memory's limitations and the opacity of the historical past, which always lies beyond the reach of living memory. Thwarting skepticism, however, he eventually looks to literature specifically writers such as Marcel Proust, Walter Scott, and W. G. Sebald to uncover subtle nuances of temporality that might offer inconspicuous emblems of a past historical reality.
