Frederick Luis Aldama

This article at once celebrates and puts at cautionary arm's length the tremendous advances made in the cognitive and neurosciences as research that can deepen our understanding of creating and consuming of literature, films, comic books. After providing an overview of recent insights by scholars with one foot in the humanities and the other in the cognitive and neurosciences, the article reflects on some key precepts that might be useful in our continued shaping of a humanities and cognitive based research program. For instance, the article explores the way authors, film directors, and artists generally not only construct artifacts that elicit positive emotions but also negative emotions. It also proposes a model for understanding how the “aesthetic” is a relation and not a property nor an essence of the object (a film) nor something to be found in the subject (us viewing the film).

From Act to Fact

The Transformation of Suicide in Western Thought

Daniel Gordon

for his intellectualism and panache, I found no newspaper articles suggesting that his death involved any reflection on his part. The press is now conditioned by sociology and neurobiology. Williams’s suicide was a mere fact, not an act. Typical was
