Rule-Following - ebook/epub

Rule-Following - ebook/epub
Rule-Following - ebook/epub
Bartosz Brożek
Copernicus Center Press
In this book, Bartosz Brożek attempts to decipher the practice of rule-following with the use of the tools offered both by contemporary philosophy and neuroscience. The Author claims – in the Wittgensteinian spirit – that rule-following cannot be thought of in terms of individual mental states only: in order to explain what rules are, one needs to consider rule-following to be a communal practice. This stance is supported by a number of evolutionary scenarios and neuroscientific theories. The monograph culminates in an explication of rule-following in language, morality and mathematics.

Is the Body the Temple of the Soul? Modern Yoga Practice as a Psychological Phenomenon - ebook/pdf
Krzysztof T. Konecki
Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego
Hatha-yoga in Western culture is often perceived as the practice of physical exercises (practice of the asana position), usually done to improve one’s health and emotional state. Even if that is the case, it is still based on the rule of “the silencing of the modifications of the mind.” It is about a containment of mind dispersion in terms of non-important, minute, everyday issues, which are not important for the basis of our existence...
