Students in the past have commented that there is
TOO MUCH INFORMATION

available on the class Moodle and supporting WebSites.
Yes, there is a lot of information, no doubt about it, and it can be confusing at first. It’s helpful when starting out to remember that the required information for the course is contained in the middle panel of your Description: Moodle HomePage. The information in the sidebars and many of the links are there should you find those interesting and/or helpful; that material is not required.

Greetings from Punxsutawney!



 Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter for 2014.
What will it be for 2015?

A little before 7:30 a.m. on 2 February 2014 Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so we can comfortably settle in for our six more weeks of winter.  “The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2, the Christian holiday of Candlemas, winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says, spring will come early.”  Thousands showed up for the event.

Parade Column - February 24, 2008

We’re taught in school that we have five senses: vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Yet we also feel pain—and hunger, for that matter. Aren’t they senses too?
—Brian Dozier, Cincinnati, Ohio

In addition to the usual five that we’re taught, humans have receptors for pressure, temperature, pain, balance and motion. So we have a total of 10 senses. But hunger is not one of them. Rather, it’s a motivation or desire, like sex. Well, not quite like sex.

. . . Questions to Think About 
. . .

  • How man senses do we have?

    • Wha's the nature of the concepts/percepts beyond the five "standard" senses?

  • With visual agnosia there were percepts but no visual concepts

  • With synesthesia there were percepts and concepts, except that the concepts got mixed up and didn't "match up" properly with the percepts

  • What about ESP--Extra-Sensory-Perception?

    • Can we have concepts without percepts?

  • What is the role of whatever is already "in" the brain in concept formation?

  • Optical Illusions
    • Percepts are formulated into erroneous concepts


  • Correct Percepts and Concepts of non-existent "things"
    • e.g., one's mental processing of a galaxy in the sky


  • Pure fantasy
    • No percepts, but concepts


  • "Phantom Pain"
    • residual concepts, but no current concepts, but current pain


  • How can both the percepts and concepts be manipulated to create altered states of consciousness?

  • Culturally Constituted Behavioral Environment (CCBE) -- A. Irving Hallowell

    "If brain tissue is damaged or does not develop fully, the ventricles—vessels filled with cerebrospinal fluid, shown in blue in this image based on neuroimaging work—expand to fill the space. Temple Grandin’s enlarged left ventricle is a sign of abnormalities in her left hemisphere, which typically handles language, and may account for the difficulties she has with processing words."

    "Last night I dreamed I was a butterfly.

    How do I know that I am not a butterfly now dreaming I'm a man ?"

    "Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn't know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. Between Zhuangzi and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things." -- (2, tr. Burton Watson 1968:49)

    Garrison Keillor notes of Gabriel García Márquez . . . "He learned to write short stories first from Kafka, and later from the American Lost Generation. He said that the first line of Kafka's Metamorphosis 'almost knocked [him] off the bed,' he was so surprised. In one interview, he quoted the first line ('As Gregor Samsa awoke that morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed into a gigantic insect') and told the interviewer, 'When I read the line, I thought to myself that I didn't know anyone was allowed to write things like that.'"

    N!ai.

    "N!ai was born in April of 1942, the only child of Di!ai and Gumza. Di!ai, her mother, had been married once before to a man named ≠Toma. They had had two children, both of whom died, and ≠Toma was murdered in a fight in 1938. In 1940, Di!ai married Gumza, N!ai’s father, a man from a group across the border in Botswana (then Bechuanaland). Soon after N!ai was born, her parents were divorced, in part because Gumza did not get along with Di!ai’s older sister, a sharp-tongued woman named !U. Di!ai also said she felt lonely for her own people, and so she went home to Gautscha when Gumza returned to Botswana. In 1944, Di!ai remarried, to a man named Kxao. Kxao already had a wife, but because he was considered a steady man, Di!ai was willing to accept the role of co-wife." -- N!ai Study Guide, p. 3

    Ocamo is My Town
    (22 min., 1988, VC 1339)

     course viewing guide

    • What things have changed among the Yanomamö since the filming of Magical Death and Children's Magical Death?

    • Will this likely change the modal personality of the Yanomamö?

    • Can adult personality change?

      • If so, what kinds of experiences will result in an adult change of personality?

    • Compare the things the Amish control to control change with those same items in the Ocamo Yanomamö culture

      • What didn't the Ocamo Yanomamö control?

      • What are the apparent consequences of that?

      Remember how the Amish consciously select the items they want to change, rather than let technological change or any other kind of change overcome and overwhelm them. And in doing that they control lots of things in order to control the rate of change and thus the forces and conditions that might result in a change in personality and/or world view. How is the situation different among the Ocamo Yanomamö?

    Credit Options at UMD
    <http://www.duluth.umn.edu/catalogs/current/pol_proc/credit_options.html>


    This course is governed by the . . .

    University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
    <http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

    UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
    <http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

    "Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

    and the UMD Student Conduct Code
    <http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

    and the

    Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
    <http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

    The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

    Instructor and Student Responsibilities Policy

    AVISO!

    A Note on Extra Credit Papers

    Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

     

    A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
    (EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

    If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

    Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

    Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

    All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.



    Students with Disabilities

    It is the policy and practice of the University of Minnesota Duluth to create inclusive learning environments for all students, including students with disabilities.  If there are aspects of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or your ability to meet course requirements – such as time limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos – please notify the instructor as soon as possible.  You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Resources to discuss and arrange reasonable accommodations.  Please call 218-726-6130 or visit the DR website at www.d.umn.edu/access for more information.
