The power of the image : emotion, expression, explanation by Andras Benedek( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We think primarily in images, and only secondarily in words, while both the image and the word are preceded by the bodily, the visceral, the muscular. This holds even for mathematical thinking. It is the entire motor system, including facial expressions and bodily gestures, that underlies not just emotions but also abstract thought. Communication, too, is a primordially visual task, spoken and written language only gradually supplementing and even supplanting the pictorial. Writing liberates, but also enslaves; after centuries of a dominantly verbal culture, today the ease of producing and acc
Meaning and motoricity : essays on image and time by János Kristóf Nyíri( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is an intrinsic connection between the notions of image and time. Visual images can strike us as incomplete, as ambiguous, unless they are moving ones, happening in time. However, time cannot be conceptualized except by metaphors, and so ultimately by images, of movement in space. The philosophy of images and the philosophy of time are interdependent. This book argues for the reality of time and for visual images as natural carriers of meaning. The experience of the passage of time, of the reality of time, is embodied and made visible in the bodily gestures of time, and indeed in all our gestures. Meaning, both emotional and cognitive, is grounded in the motor dimension. By implication, no meaningful philosophy of time can neglect the aspect of motor imagery
How to do things with pictures : skill, practice, performance by János Kristóf Nyíri( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pictorial meaning involves not just resemblance, but also pictorial skills, pictorial acts, practices, and performance. Especially in the classroom setting, at all levels of education, it is essential to realize that teaching with pictures and learning through pictures is a practical enterprise where thinking is embedded in doing. Promoting visual learning means to be a visionary, and to take on an enormous educational challenge. But while adaptation and innovation are inevitable in a world where technological changes are rapidly and radically altering the learning environment, educational science and the everyday practice of education clearly need to retain a measure of conservatism. And any conservatism worth the name has to take account of visuality, visual thinking, and visual learning

Tradition and individuality : essays by János Kristóf Nyíri( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A volume of essays on the themes of tradition, oral communication versus literal communication, Wittgenstein, and computers. The later Wittgenstein is shown to be on the one hand a traditionalist, and on the other hand, along with Heidegger, a philosopher of postmodern - secondary - orality, yearning for bygone, premodern times - the times of primary orality. Under conditions of primary orality traditions fulfilled the specific cognitive role of conserving information - a role subsequently taken over by writing, and today by electronic data processing. The message of the volume is that the Western values of individuality and critical thinking are intimately bound up with the technology of writing. It offers arguments in favour of the standards and techniques of, classical education even under conditions of indeed as a foundation for, the emerging computer culture

The iconic turn in education by Andras Benedek( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some twenty years after the term iconic turn has been coined, and with a deluge of digital images, videos and animations surrounding, indeed invading, the learning environment, it appears that educational science, and the everyday practice of education, still very much labour under the impact of the past dominance of alphabetic literacy. But while educators clearly need to retain a measure of conservatism, maintain an acute sense for the logic of the written text and preserve the ability to handle extended hardcopy documents, they have to rise to the task, also, of exploiting the potentials of online networked communication, the constant presence of images, both static and moving, and the continuous interplay of words and images

Zeit und Bild : philosophische Studien zur Wirklichkeit des Werdens by János Kristóf Nyíri( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denken vollzieht sich nicht bloß in Wörtern, sondern auch - wesentlich - in kinästhetisch fundierten mentalen Bildern. Unsere alltäglichen Zeitmetaphern entsprechen bildlich vermittelten leiblichen Erfahrungen und führen zu einer Common-Sense-Auffassung der Wirklichkeit der Zeit, welche von der Philosophie nicht widerlegt, sondern gerechtfertigt werden sollte. Kristóf Nyíri argumentiert auf der Grundlage einer nicht-konventionalistischen Auffassung der bildlichen Bedeutung für die These der Realität der Zeit. Er zeigt: Die Grenzen des Vorstellbaren fallen sowohl in der Religion als auch in der Wissenschaft mit den Grenzen des Verbildlichbaren zusammen
Beyond words : pictures, parables, paradoxes by András Benedek( )

10 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human thinking depends not only on words but also on visual imagery. Visual argumentation directly exploits the logic of the pictorial, while verbal arguments, too, draw on figurative language, and thus ultimately on images. In the centuries of handwritten documents and the printed book, our educational culture has been a predominantly verbal one. Today the challenge of the pictorial is explicit and conspicuous. In the digital world, we are experiencing an unprecedented wealth of images, animations and videos. But how should visual content be combined with traditional texts? This volume strives to present a broad humanities background showing how going beyond the word was always an issue in, and by now has become an inevitable challenge to, pedagogy and philosophy
