Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky

https://www.amazon.com/Rules-Radicals-Practical-Primer-Realistic/dp/0679721134

First published in 1971 and written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.

Computers Viewing Artists at Work

https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-642-83462-2_18

Our title suggests an Artificial Intelligence approach to the use of computers in the fine arts. We consider computers to have capabilities beyond the utilitarian ones of aiding in art making. Rather, we will investigate the possibility of computers seeing, even understanding, significant form in art. This understanding cannot rise autonomously, but must be the product of careful tutelage by artists, critics, and historians. A powerful tutorial mechanism to use for computers to learn about art is the picture grammar, which allows large classes of compositional structures to be described to a computer by the scholar who has a deep understanding of the art works. In this paper, we illustrate how a machine can be taught the compositional structure of the paintings of the contemporary artist Richard Diebenkorn. With such grammatical instruction, the computer can analyze existing paintings, generate new ones of the same style, and provide a beginning to a computational theory of style.

Post-Digital Rhetoric and the New Aesthetic

https://www-jstor-org.proxy.libraries.rutgers.edu/stable/j.ctv2dv7hk0

The proliferation of smart devices, digital media, and network technologies has led to everyday people experiencing everyday things increasingly on and through the screen. In fact, much of the world has become so saturated by digital mediations that many individuals have adopted digitally inflected sensibilities. This gestures not simply toward posthumanism, but more fundamentally toward an altogether post-digital condition-one in which the boundaries between the "real" and the "digital" have become blurred and technology has fundamentally reconfigured how we make sense of the world. Post-Digital Rhetoric and the New Aesthetic takes stock of these reconfigurations and their implications for rhetorical studies by taking up the New Aesthetic-a movement introduced by artist/digital futurist James Bridle that was meant to capture something of a digital way of seeing by identifying aesthetic values that could not exist without computational and digital technologies. Bringing together work in rhetoric, art, and digital media studies, Hodgson treats the New Aesthetic as a rhetorical ecology rather than simply an aesthetic movement, allowing him to provide operative guides for the knowing, doing, and making of rhetoric in a post-digital culture.

The Einstein Factor A PROVEN NEW METHOD FOR INCREASING YOUR INTELLIGENCE

https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/188688/the-einstein-factor-by-win-wenger-phd-and-richard-poe/

ABOUT THE EINSTEIN FACTOR
“The Einstein Factor liberates mental abilities you didn’t know you had. I tried the techniques in the book and they paid off instantly. It’s almost scary.” —Duncan Maxwell Anderson, senior editor, Success.

New research suggests that the superior achievements of famous thinkers may have been more the result of mental conditioning than genetic superiority. Now you can learn to condition your mind in the same way and improve your performance in virtually all aspects of mental ability, including memory, quickness, IQ, and learning capacity.

Intelligence pioneer Dr. Win Wenger has identified the tools you need to reach greater levels of sharpness, insight, and overall intelligence. Using Wenger’s Image Streaming technique, you learn to bypass inhibitions and access the hypernormal capabilities hidden in your own subconscious. Discover how you can:

• Improve your memory
• Read faster and learn more quickly
• Solve problems like a genius
• Score higher on tests
• Build self-esteem
• Induce a state of total creative absorption
• Access powerful subconscious insights through visualization
• Increase your intelligence

The Einstein Factor is your key to living an extraordinarily effective and creative life!

Thinking Strategically: Power Tools for Personal and Professional Advancement

https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Strategically-Personal-Professional-Advancement/dp/0521560586

Professionals today, whether scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, or managers, need to maximize their effectiveness. Real world problems are complex and must be tackled with adequate conceptual tools. Hard work and motivation are not enough. Professionals need to think strategically in order to choose the right problem to solve, to solve it in a cost-effective way, to use resources efficiently, and to be innovative and productive. Written in a concise, accessible style, Thinking Strategically goes beyond brainstorming motivational books to provide the power tools needed to dissect problems and to find innovative solutions. These tools are based on an understanding of the power of bottlenecks, paradox, scale and perspective constraints, and feedback as leverage points for getting a grip on the problem. The result is a practical book for managers and other professionals about the strategic use of effort that can lead to astonishing levels of productivity.

Art and Artist: Creative Urge and Personality Development

https://www.amazon.com/Art-Artist-Creative-Personality-Development/dp/0393305740

Otto Rank, an Austrian psychoanalyst and one of Sigmund Freud's early colleagues, had a unique perspective on the artist's role in society and their psychological makeup. In his works, especially in "Art and Artist" (1932), Rank explores the psychological processes involved in creativity and the artist's struggle with artistic expression.

Rank proposed that there are three types of people concerning their approach to life and creativity:

The Average Person: This type conforms to societal norms and expectations, often suppressing their personal creative impulses to maintain social harmony and personal security.

The Neurotic: According to Rank, neurotics are individuals who feel the impulse to create or express themselves but are overwhelmed by the anxiety it causes. They may retreat from their creative impulses due to the fear of the unknown and the potential disruption to their sense of self and their societal roles.

The Artist: The third type, the artist, manages to harness their creative impulses in a way that both expresses their personal vision and communicates universally relatable truths to others. Unlike the neurotic, the artist confronts and integrates their anxieties into their work, using creativity as a form of therapy and self-realization. Artists are able to live with the tension between their individual needs and the demands of society, transforming personal conflicts into expressive and often socially accepted artistic creations.

Rank's theory highlights the artist as someone who not only produces art to satisfy personal needs but also transforms personal suffering into something that has universal appeal. This transformation is a key aspect of what Rank saw as the therapeutic value of art, both for the artist and for those who engage with the artist's work.

Understanding Rank's view helps to appreciate how he saw the artist as a pivotal figure in bridging inner psychological realities with external social expressions, contributing deeply to the cultural and emotional life of their communities.

Truth and Reality

https://www.amazon.com/Truth-Reality-Norton-Library-Paperback/dp/0393008991

Rank’s development of will psychology led him to a philosophy of the psychological, outlined in Truth and Reality. Here he explores the psychological determinants of the relationship of inner world to outer reality.

Anticipating one of the central findings of post-Freudian psychiatry, he argues that “truth” is irrelevant to the work of therapy. He contrasts the negative externalization of will, which leads to denial and guilt, with the creative power of will, tracing this conflict in both the individual and the history of human society.
