...images or visual art is striking; natural scenes often result in cross-subject correlations in the range of 0.4 to 0.6 ( Vessel and Rubin, 2010 ; Biederman and Vessel, 2006 )—higher numbers indicate greater agreement with 1.0 being perfect concord; faces are even higher—0.8 to 0.9 in one analysis ( Langlois et al., 2000 ). By contrast, for paintings, correlations are approximately 0.14 ( Vessel et al., 2012 ) and for abstract images, 0.2 ( Vessel and Rubin, 2010 ). Many commentators assess this relative consensus by positing that certain perceptual...

...flattening (exchange principle), and also a hierarchization (with capital at the apex). We might say that such an Assemblage is one that subjects its people (albeit a subjection often masked by slogans invoking individual freedom and the possibilities of participation, such as Web 2.0, Nike’s “Just Do It!,” and the like). These two Assemblages cannot be reduced to specific epochs, for they can, and invariably do, coexist within the same period (for example, and as Guattari points out, animist beliefs and practices coexist with advanced capitalism in the...

...( Healy, 2001 , p. 26). Large-scale epidemiological studies conducted within the last two decades have furthermore consistently shown that depression is a gendered phenomenon, typically reporting sex ratios (female/male) in the range of 2 or 3 to 1 ( Stoppard, 2000 , pp. 4–5). These alarming statistics disclose health sciences’ growing reliance on the notion of depression in the diagnosis of mental illnesses. This inference, without the additional supposition of not knowing how to cure the disorder, combined with prevalence, implies the concept is slippery....

...the psychologists’ theories to analyze art and explain how it interests and moves people as it does. The result has been called “evocriticism.” Evocriticism has been applied to the critical examination of many novels, Shakespearian drama, poetic lyrics, popular genres such as science fiction, folk tales, and narratives told by hunter-foragers. Typically, these works are approached singly, though some statistically aggregated cross-genre studies have been attempted. Notice that evocriticism need not be committed to literary Darwinism, which was described...
