Book Review: Cognitive Science, Literature and the Arts by Patrick Hogan

This is my first attempt at using Audioboo for this book review for Patrick Hogan’s Cognitive Science, Literature and the Arts. Overall, a very good research book that offers in depth exploration of the human cognitive process during the interpretation and emotional understanding of the arts.

I 'mFrankie De Sotoand I was born on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I graduated at the top of my class from the University of North Texas with a BA in Art and 2 minors in Marketing and Radio, Television, and Film. I have been doing graphic design for the past couple of years creating graphics for advertising, signs, brochures , and flyers but I decided to return to school to expand my knowledge into more new media applications such as web design, human /computer interaction, Flash animation and marketing communications. I graduated with an MFA in Arts & Technology at the University of Texas at Dallas. My current studies are focusing on social media and marketing communications which in part encouraged me to begin this blog as well as my love for Hispanic culture and online media practices.

    You made some interesting statements on the book. Makes me want to know about it and why society craves a good movie. I want to know what I could learn from this book? I am into learning new interesting subjects. This book would work great in a senior English high school class. I probably would not have the mind set for it in high school but I’m in my prime so its more interesting to me now. Can I just borrow the book from you? :)

    I think English, Art and Film classes will definitely get alot out of this book. I think a good general knowledge of cognitive science will help grab a better understanding on developing art and literature that will attract the right audience, even at an emotional level.
