Largely through trial and error, filmmakers have developed engaging techniques that capture our sensations, thoughts, and feelings. Philosophers and film theorists have thought deeply about the nature and impact of these techniques, yet few scientists have delved into empirical analyses of our movie experience-or what Arthur P. Shimamura has coined "psychocinematics." This edited volume introduces this exciting field by bringing together film theorists, philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists to consider the viability of a scientific approach to our movie experience.

Der Sammelband widmet sich dem spezifischen Verhältnis von Animation und verschiedenen Transformationsprozessen. In den geplanten Aufsätzen werden (Ver-)Wandlungen von Formen und Körpern, von Zeit und Raum, aber auch der Wandel von wissenschaftlichen Definitionen oder (inter-)kulturellen Bezügen untersucht. Ziel ist es, die Wandlungsfähigkeiten der Animation in den Blick zu nehmen und ihre Umgestaltungs- und Umsetzungs- und Übersetzungsleistungen als Phänomene genauer zu beschreiben.

The impact of the embodied cognition thesis on the scientific study of film The embodied cognition thesis claims that cognitive functions cannot be understood without making reference to the interactions between the brain, the body, and the environment. The meaning of abstract concepts is grounded in concrete experiences. This book is the first edited volume to explore the impact of the embodied cognition thesis on the scientific study of film. A team of scholars analyse the main aspects of film (narrative, style, music, sound, time, the viewer, emotion, perception, ethics, the frame, etc.) from an embodied perspective. By combining insights from various disciplines such as cognitive film theory, conceptual metaphor theory, and cognitive neuroscience, they show how the process of meaning-making in film is embodied and how empathy and embodied simulation play a role in understanding the way in which the viewer interacts with the film. Foreword by Mark Johnson, Knight Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Department of Philosophy, University of Oregon. Contributors Warren Buckland (Oxford Brookes University), Juan Chattah (University of Miami), Maarten Coëgnarts (University of Antwerp), Adriano D’Aloia (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan), Michele Guerra (University of Parma), Miklós Kiss (University of Groningen), Peter Kravanja (KU Leuven), María J.

This groundbreaking edited collection is the first major study to explore the intersection between cognitive theory and documentary film studies, focusing on a variety of formats, such as first-person, wildlife, animated and slow TV documentary, as well as docudrama and web videos. Documentaries play an increasingly significant role in informing our cognitive and emotional understanding of today?s mass-mediated society, and this collection seeks to illuminate their production, exhibition, and reception. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the essays draw on the latest research in film studies, the neurosciences, cultural studies, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and the philosophy of mind. With a foreword by documentary studies pioneer Bill Nichols and contributions from both theorists and practitioners, this volume firmly demonstrates that cognitive theory represents a valuable tool not only for film scholars but also for filmmakers and practice-led researchers.

'Warped Minds' explores the transformation of psychopathologies into cultural phenomena in the wake of the transition from an epistemological to an ontological approach to psychopathology. Trifonova considers several major points in this intellectual history: the development of a dynamic model of the self at the fin de siècle, the role of photography and film in the construction of psychopathology, the influence of psychoanalysis on the transition from static, universalizing psychiatric paradigms to dynamic styles of psychiatry foregrounding the socially constructed nature of madness, and the decline of psychoanalysis and the aestheticization of madness into a trope describing the conditions of knowledge in postmodernity as evidenced by the transformation of multiple personality and paranoia into cultural and aesthetic phenomena. -Temenuga Trifonova is Associate Professor of Cinema and Media Studies at York University in Toronto. Her teaching and research focus on theories of film and photography; film and philosophy; psychopathology and cinema; film criticism; contemporary American cinema; European cinema; theories of globalization and identity; cross-cultural andcross-genre film remakes; and screenwriting. She is the author of The Image in French Philosophy (2007), European Film Theory (2008), and director, writer and producer of the feature film Man of Glass (2012)

Ein Lidschlag. Ein Schnitt. ist ein lebendiger, vielschichtiger und anregender Essay des gefeierten Film-Cutters Walter Murch über Filmschnitt und beginnt mit der grundlegenden Frage: Warum funktionieren Schnitte? Murch führt dem Leser anschaulich und unterhaltsam die ästhetischen und praktischen Probleme des Filmschnitts vor. Aus Erfahrung spricht er über Themen wie Kontinuität und Diskontinuität beim Schneiden; Traum und Wirklichkeit; Kriterien für einen guten Schnitt; den Lidschlag als emotionaler Schnitt; den digitalen Schnitt und vieles mehr. >Dies ist kein Lehrbuch über die Technik des Schneidens. Es beschäftigt sich mit den künstlerischen - und einigen technischen - Gründen, warum ich bestimmte Dinge tue und - basierend auf meiner Erfahrung - wie ich das meiste aus dem Prozeß des kreativen Schneidens heraushole.

Quirkologie ist eine neue Disziplin der Verhaltenspsychologie, die Professor Richard Wiseman seit über zwanzig Jahren betreibt. Mit wissenschaftlichen Methoden untersucht er die erstaunlichsten Aspekte menschlichen Verhaltens: wie unser Vorname unsere Persönlichkeit beeinflusst, warum September-Kinder besser in Sport sind, ob Freitag der 13. tatsächlich eine Gefahr für unsere Gesundheit darstellt - und welches der lustigste Witz der Welt ist. »Wiseman hat einen Riecher für populäre Themen und ein bemerkenswertes Geschick, Fragen auf eine Art anzugehen, wie es noch keiner vor ihm getan hat.« Die Zeit
