​This book investigates the nature of aesthetic experience and aesthetic objects. Written by leading philosophers, psychologists, literary scholars and semioticians, the book addresses two intertwined issues. The first is related to the phenomenology of aesthetic experience: The understanding of how human beings respond to artworks, how we process linguistic or visual information, and what properties in artworks trigger aesthetic experiences. The examination of the properties of aesthetic experience reveals essential aspects of our perceptual, cognitive, and semiotic capacities. The second issue studied in this volume is related to the ontology of the work of art: Written or visual artworks are a specific type of objects, containing particular kinds of representation which elicit a particular kind of experience. The research question explored is: What properties in artful objects trigger this type of experience, and what characterizes representation in written and visual artworks? The volume sets the scene for state-of-the-art inquiries in the intersection between the psychology and ontology of art. The investigations of the relation between the properties of artworks and the characteristics of aesthetic experience increase our insight into what art is. In addition, they shed light on essential properties of human meaning-making in general.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Obsessive-compulsive disorder is not a quirk or just a habit. It is a mental illness that brings with it a sense of fear and anxiety. It is not a choice, and it does not bring any sense of fulfillment or joy. #2 OCD is a brain and behavioral disorder that is associated with anxiety, fear, doubt, or disgust, or any combination of these. It can take up to seventeen years from the onset of symptoms to connect to effective treatment. #3 Triggers are what prompt your unwanted thoughts and urges in OCD. They can be external, such as people, places, and things in your environment, or they can be internal thoughts or urges. Obsessions are frequent and persistent thoughts, images, or urges that are disturbing and unwanted. #4 obsessions can lead to years of suffering if they are not treated. They can take you away from what’s important to you, and they can lead to skin damage or infections if you try to avoid them by washing your hands excessively.

Prayer is without a doubt a very important part of ministry for every believer and the church especially in the days we are living. When we pray we come to understand the mind and redemptive will of our Lord for our lives, specific situations, and the will of God for our family, church, community and nation. "The Church's greatest deficiency today is in power not in programs, strategies, materials or ideas. And power for ministry can be released only through prayer." Prayer should not be mechanical or burdensome. But fulfilling, powerful, consistent, relevant, cutting edge and a benefit for all; it is our desire for every person who uses this prayer journal to receive a fresh impartation in your prayer life that will infuse His Glory and breathe, and His love into your relationships. We anticipate the rewards that will come to you when you use this prayer journal and while you make a commitment to discipline your life in prayer.

From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence and the John Cleaver series, comes the second book in a dark, pulse-pounding sci-fi-noir series set in 2050 Los Angeles. Overworld. It’s more than just the world’s most popular e-sport—for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it’s a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the internet and four friends you trust with your life, anything is possible. Marisa Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives word that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, this could mean anything—a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems—rife with corruption, infighting, and danger—and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament. It soon becomes clear that, in this game, winning might be the only way to get out alive.
