Unthought : the power of the cognitive nonconscious
Hayles, Katherine, 1943- author
Chicago ; The University of Chicago Press, 2017
N. Katherine Hayles is known for breaking new ground at the intersection of the sciences and the humanities. In 'Unthought', she once again bridges disciplines by revealing how we think without thinking - how we use cognitive processes that are inaccessible to consciousness yet necessary for it to function. Marshalling fresh insights from neuroscience, cognitive science, cognitive biology, and literature, Hayles expands our understanding of cognition and demonstrates that it involves more than consciousness alone. Cognition, as Hayles defines it, is applicable not only to nonconscious processes in humans but to all forms of life, including unicellular organisms and plants. Startlingly, she also shows that cognition operates in the sophisticated information-processing abilities of technical systems: when humans and cognitive technical systems interact, they form "cognitive assemblages" - as found in urban traffic control, drones, and the trading algorithms of finance capital, for instance - and these assemblages are transforming life on earth. The result is what Hayles calls a "planetary cognitive ecology," which includes both human and technical actors and which poses urgent questions to humanists and social scientists alike. At a time when scientific and technological advances are bringing far-reaching aspects of cognition into the public eye, 'Unthought' reflects deeply on our contemporary situation and moves us toward a more sustainable and flourishing environment for all beings.

"As individual subjects, creativity and personality have been the focus of much research and many publications. This Cambridge Handbook is the first to bring together these two topics and explores how personality and behavior affects creativity. Contributors from around the globe present cutting-edge research about how personality traits and motives make creative behavior more likely. Many aspects of personality and behavior are examined in the chapters, including genius, emotions, psychopathology, entrepreneurship, and multiculturalism, to analyse the impact of these on creativity. The Cambridge Handbook of Creativity and Personality Research will be the definitive resource for researchers, students and academics who study psychology, personality, and creativity"--

The late Sigmund Freud : or, the last word on psychoanalysis, society, and all the riddles of life
Dufresne, Todd, 1966- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Freud is best remembered for two applied works on society, 'The Future of an Illusion' and 'Civilization and its Discontents'. Yet the works of the final period are routinely denigrated as merely supplemental to the earlier, more fundamental "discoveries" of the unconscious and dream interpretation. In fact, the "cultural Freud" is sometimes considered an embarrassment to psychoanalysis. Dufresne argues that the late Freud, as brilliant as ever, was actually revealing the true meaning of his life's work. And so while 'The Future of an Illusion', 'Civilization and its Discontents', and his final work 'Moses and Monotheism' may be embarrassing to some, they validate beliefs that Freud always held - including the psychobiology that provides the missing link between the individual psychology of the early period and the psychoanalysis of culture of the final period. The result is a lively, balanced, and scholarly defense of the late Freud that doubles as a major reassessment of psychoanalysis of interest to all readers of Freud.
