Talk Talk Talk

BY ROBERT KETEYIAN
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 13, 2013

Robert Keteyian explores thought proccesses, and the we think and communicate. Everyone has different levels of auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic, and visual-spatial reasoning, which may account for difficulties in communication. By understanding these innate differences, we can become less judgemental and more accepting of one another.

From Flaneur to Panneur

BY ANTOINE VAXELAIRE
@ VOL 110 ON JAN 22, 2014

In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyeurs utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. Architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millennium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information.

Contraires, Attention Danger! - Beware of Opposites!

BY MARIE STEFFENS
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

Marie Steffens explores how two opposites used in the same sentence utilize our thought processes to influence the way we conceptualize the world. Opposites linked together in one sentence can express, inter alia, the totality of a category (rich and poor means “all people”). By studying the mechanisms underlying the expression of a totality, we try to understand how opposites can manipulate us. 

Marie Steffens explore comment deux contraires utilisés dans la même phrase utilisent nos processus de pensée pour influencer notre manière de conceptualiser le monde. Des contraires reliés entre eux dans une phrase peuvent exprimer notamment la totalité d'une catégorie (Les riches et les pauvres signifie « tout le monde »). En étudiant les mécanismes sous-jacents à l'expression d'une totalité, nous essayons de comprendre comment les contraires peuvent nous manipuler.

Finishing Stuff

BY WILLIAM RUPP
@ VOL 25 ON MAY 03, 2016

Will Rupp could (and does) describe himself as prone to procrastination or perhaps not really a 'finisher'. Here he talks about how, on being 'volunteered' to talk at PKN Coventry Vol 25, he enjoyed getting his desk, music and everything ready - until he had to actually sit down to that blank screen - and how recognising that pattern of behaviour helped him to enjoy participating in the journey rather than always fixating on the destination.
