diter roth British artist Tania Kovats makes drawings, sculpture, installations and large-scale time-based projects exploring our experience and understanding of landscape. She is best known for Tree (2009), a permanent installation for the Natural History Museum in London; and Rivers, an outdoor sculpture in the landscape of Jupiter Artland outside Edinburgh. This new exhibition focuses on her fascination with the sea. A highlight of the exhibition is All the Sea, an ambitious new work which presents water from all the world’s seas, collected with the help of a global network of people drawn in by the idea of bringing all the waters of the world to one place. It is joined by new and existing work all of which has to do in some way with the sea.

Charles Fernyhough: Is memory just a leaky reconstruction? We are in the middle of a debate about the status of neuroscience. Against the deceptive allure of neuroimaging and reported sightings of "brain centres" for everything from sarcasm to religious experience, there are stern reassurances that, if we were ever to work out the scientific basis of consciousness, it would be too complicated for us to understand. Is neuroscience really changing the way we comprehend ourselves? If tracing behaviour and experience to its neural underpinnings really offers a new understanding of humanity, aren't novelists bound to draw on it in revealing how their characters understand themselves? In one sense, neuro-explanations seem to challenge the mechanisms by which novels work. Neuroscientists warn us that we may have no freewill, no "self" at the helm; their work shows that our memories are leaky reconstructions and that even our visual perception of the world is a system of illusions.

Welcome to ACCET Schools and Courses The Art of Identity: Memory as the Maker | The Harvard Advocate In his recently published memoir, Nothing to Be Frightened Of, the novelist Julian Barnes offers a succinct view of memory: Memory is identity. I have believed this since… oh, since I can remember. You are what you have done; what you have done is in your memory; what you remember defines who you are; when you forget your life, you cease to be, even before death. Memory is identity. Memory is identity. Barnes’ definition is one of equating, presenting memory and identity as one in the same. Barnes’ memoir is focused on his thanatophobia, an abnormal and excessive fear of death, and so his excerpt is focused on personal identity. In Archive Fever: A Freudian Impression, philosopher Jacques Derrida purports that an archive can only be defined as such if it is exterior to actual memory. In the classical western world of the first century BC, when the simplest tools of external memory (paper and printing) were unavailable, actual internal memories functioned in an entirely different way.

‘Life in the Chatter Box’ | Our Project Coordinator Victoria Patton writes: The Hearing the Voice team were very excited to see project director Charles Fernyhough’s article ‘Life in the Chatter Box’ in the New Scientist this week. The article focuses on recent research into inner speech and its role in shaping the distinctive properties of human thought. It also explores the role inner speech plays in decision making, regulating and motivating behaviour, our understanding of our own mental processes, and our awareness of who we are as individuals. Much of Fernyhough’s thinking about inner speech is influenced by the work of L.S. Vygotsky, a Russian psychologist whose work in developmental psychology initially emerged during the early years of the Soviet Union. One of the consequences of Vygotsky’s view is that very young children are really only able to ‘think out loud’ and pre-linguistic infants don’t have any thoughts at all (at least not where ‘thoughts’ are equated with episodes of inner speech). voice.”

Jacques Derrida Jacques Derrida (/ʒɑːk ˈdɛrɨdə/; French: [ʒak dɛʁida]; born Jackie Élie Derrida;[1] July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004) was a French philosopher, born in French Algeria. Derrida is best known for developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction. He is one of the major figures associated with post-structuralism and postmodern philosophy.[3][4][5] During his career Derrida published more than 40 books, together with hundreds of essays and public presentations. Particularly in his later writings, he frequently addressed ethical and political themes present in his work. Life[edit] Derrida was the third of five children. On the first day of the school year in 1942, Derrida was expelled from his lycée by French administrators implementing anti-Semitic quotas set by the Vichy government. Derrida traveled widely and held a series of visiting and permanent positions. Derrida was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Philosophy[edit] Early works[edit]
