With Instaread Summaries, you can get the summary of a book in 30 minutes or less. We read every chapter, summarize, and analyze it for your convenience. This is an Instaread Summary of Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary. Introduction: In this book, Daniel Kahneman hopes to identify and understand errors of judgment and choice. He wants to provide a richer and more accurate vocabulary to discuss these errors. He worked with his colleague, Amos Tversky, doing research on intuitive statistics. The two of them had already concluded in an earlier seminar that their own intuitions were lacking. Their subjective judgments were biased, they were too willing to believe research findings based on inadequate evidence, and they collected too few observations in their own research. The goal of their study was to find out whether other researchers had this problem as well. Kahneman and Tversky found that participants in their studies ignored the relevant statistical facts and relied exclusively on resemblance. They used resemblance as a heuristic (rule of thumb) to simplify things when making a difficult judgment. Relying on this heuristic caused predictable biases (systematic errors) in their predictions. The research partners learned that people tend to determine the importance of issues by how easy they are retrieved from their memory. This is brought about in large part by the extent of coverage of the issues in the media. Kahneman presents a view of how the mind works, drawing on recent developments in cognitive and social psychology. He explains the differences between fast (intuitive) thinking and slow (deliberate) thinking. People have a limitation in their minds: an excessive confidence in what they think they know. 1.

How did the visual, the oral, and the written interrelate in antiquity? The essays in this collection address the competing and complementary roles of visual media, forms of memory, oral performance, and literacy and popular culture in the ancient Mediterranean world. Incorporating both customary and innovative perspectives, the essays advance the frontiers of our understanding of the nature of ancient texts as regards audibility and performance, the vital importance of the visual in the comprehension of texts, and basic concepts of communication, particularly the need to account for disjunctive and non-reciprocal social relations in communication. Thus the contributions show how the investigation of the interface of the oral and written, across the spectrum of seeing, hearing, and writing, generates new concepts of media and mediation. Annette Weissenrieder, Associate Professor of New Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union, is author of Images of Illness in the Gospel of Luke. Insights in Ancient Medical Texts and many other books. Her main areas of research are ancient architecture, especially of temples, Vetus Latina Luke and Matthew, Greco-Roman medicine and philosophy, and New Testament anthropology. Robert B. Coote is Nathaniel Gray Professor Emeritus and Senior Research Professor of Hebrew Exegesis and Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA. He is the author of Amos Among the Prophets, The Emergence of Early Israel in Historical Perspective, The Bible's First History, Early Israel, and In Defense of Revolution: The Elohist History, among other works.

Biography of Woody Allen
3,00 CHF *

ABOUT THE BOOK Woody Allen is one of the most renowned film directors in American cinema history, and not only because he frequently appears in his own films as an actor. His output as a filmmaker has been prolific: he often churns out a new movie with each passing year, a pace that hasnt deteriorated even in his 60s and 70s. He writes his films himself, and directs them with wit and grace. I consider him a treasure of the cinema, Roger Ebert wrote in 2011 (Chicago Sun-Times, Midnight in Paris). Allens best-known and most beloved films routinely appear on lists of the greatest movies of all time, including Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Hannah and Her Sisters. His frequent collaborators include Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow (both love interests in his personal life), Judy Davis, Dianne Wiest, Julie Kavner, and, more recently, Scarlett Johansson. The 2011 film Midnight in Paris marked Allens 41st feature film. MEET THE AUTHOR Adam McKibbin's work has appeared in a wide variety of magazines and websites, including The Nation, the Chicago Tribune, AlterNet, Paste and Punk Planet. He's worked in web editorial and social media management for years, and is a seasoned interviewer whose favorite subjects include David Lynch, Tori Amos and human rights journalist Mac McClelland. He studied creative writing at the University of Wisconsin and received the Award for Academic Excellence for his collected fiction. He's currently working on his first nonfiction book. Adam lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter, and can be found on Twitter at @TheRedAlert. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Allens personal romantic life outdoes most of his fictional characters in terms of tumult. He married his teenage girlfriend, Harlene Rosen, but it was an ill-fated marriage that ended acrimoniously. Allens vicious one-liners following their separation, including a joke following a report that Rosen (or The Dread Mrs. Allen, as he called her) had been assaulted, led to legal action. Allens second marriage, to actress Louise Lasser, occurred in 1966 and lasted until 1969. Unlike her predecessor, Lasser seemed to bear Allen no ill will for the split; In our relationship, he was the stable one, she said in a later interview (Contact Music, Louise Lasser Interview). During what is generally considered his most artistically fruitful period, Allen partnered up (on and off camera) with Diane Keaton. Keaton starred in eight Allen films, including Annie Hall and Manhattan, two of his best-regarded and best-grossing... Buy a copy to keep reading!
