My thirty years in baseball by John Joseph McGraw( Book )

4 editions published between 1923 and 1974 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1902, when McGraw took the Giants' helm, until he retired in ill health in 1932, the club was inordinately successful, yet their heart-breaking defeats became part of baseball legend: the Merkle Boner of 1908, the Snodgrass Muff in 1912. The irrepressible McGraw tells all the stories, evaluates the players of his day, sounds off about unions and contracts, debates the benefits of a college education, harks back to his good old days, meditates on the science of managing, and relates forty years of colorful anecdotes

Divination and Decision-Making : Ritual Techniques of Distributed Cognition in the Guatemalan Highlands by John Joseph McGraw( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a highland Maya divination ritual called pajooneem (Tz'utujil, "weighing" or "balancing"), the bright red seeds of the tz'ite' tree (Erythrina corallodendron) are utilized in conjunction with the 260-day calendar known as the Cholq'iij in order to involve revered "other-than-human persons" (Hallowell 2002) in a decision-making activity. The tz'ite' seeds serve as "mediating artifacts" (Hutchins 1995:292) that help to coordinate various elements in an "ecology of mind" (Bateson 2000). In particular, the tz'ite' seeds serve as "material anchors" (Hutchins 2005) when, during the divination, they are grouped into clusters to stand-in for the days of the Cholq'iij calendar. In this "conceptual blend" (Fauconnier and Turner 2002) the clusters of seeds come to embody the days of the Cholq'iij. Since there are twenty distinct days in this calendar, each of which pairs with the numbers one through thirteen in the course of the 260-day cycle, the combinatorial possibilities present a clear challenge to working memory. The use of material anchors facilitates the manipulation of representations in a complex "traffic of signs" (Peirce, et al. 1982) or "semiotic ecology" (Lang 1993). The use of objects in this ritual also helps to make the decision-making activity public and visible; this public status, coupled with a "suppression of intention" typical of the divination process itself (Du Bois 1993), further distributes the agency of the decision among the interacting elements coordinated by the ritual. This distribution of agency lessens the "normative load" on the individuals involved and invests the decision with institutional authority. Using interview transcripts, photos, and video analysis, I consider the ways that tz'ite' seeds mediate cognition with a spotlight on their role in decision-making practices. Ultimately, this represents a cultural practice that is far more typical than commonly appreciated: People involve themselves in each other's decision-making and judgment via an assemblage of intersubjective and interobjective structuration processes fostered by material objects. This investigation has relevance for discussions of materiality in anthropology, distributed cognition in cognitive science, active externalism in philosophy, and emphasizes the importance of studying ritual as a dynamical system; that is, identifying the reciprocally causal relationships among the people, places, objects, and signs, an approach I have entitled "ritual ecology."
