  1. The Howie Smith Project ‘Creative Spaces for Creative People’ a Study of Urban Regeneration and the Creative Community.Robert Howie Smith - 2020 - Dissertation, University of Birmingham
    The Howie Smith Project is a social enterprise that was formed in response to David Cameron’s Conservative Party’s political ideology, The Big Society. A practice-led study, THSP occupies derelict properties and enables space for creative enterprise, start-up opportunities, development of creative practice, entrepreneurship, collaboration and progress in an attempt to secure affordable long-term space for continued creative use as the city evolves. Regeneration strategies in the UK have targeted the creative industries and the rise in digital technology, bio-tech and green (...)

  • Aesthetics as a Habit: Between Constraints and Freedom, Nudges and Creativity.Mariagrazia Portera - 2022 - Philosophies 7 (2):24.
    This paper is a preliminary attempt to bring to the fore some questions and issues regarding the role of habits in aesthetics. Indeed, much attention has recently been given to habits across a wide range of fields of inquiry: philosophers turn to the concept to investigate its significance to the historical development of Western thought; neuroscientists look into the role that habits play in the functioning of the human mind and identify the neural and psychological underpinnings of habitual behavior; anthropologists, (...)

  • Introduction: Shifting Attention.Nick Seaver, Tero Karppi & Rebecca Jablonsky - 2022 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 47 (2):235-242.
    In recent years, attention has become a matter of increasing public concern. New digital technologies have transformed human attention materially and discursively, reorganizing perceptual practices and inciting debates about them. The essays in this special issue emerged from a set of panels focused on attention at the 4S conference in New Orleans in 2019. They are all, in various ways, concerned with shifts among attention’s many meanings: between payment and care, instinct and agency, or vulnerability and power. Drawing on Science (...)

  • From Poacher to Protector of Attention: The Therapeutic Turn of Persuasive Technology and Ethics of a Smartphone Habit-Breaking Application.Alex Beattie - 2022 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 47 (2):337-359.
    This paper critically investigates the ethical perspectives and practices of individuals and organizations who make persuasive technologies. An organization that claims to be at the forefront of ethical persuasion is behavioral software company Boundless Mind. Yet Boundless Mind sells ostensibly oxymoronic software products: an Application Programming Interface for third-party applications that optimizes the capture of end user attention, and an application for end users on how to make third-party applications less persuasive. Drawing upon Foucault’s interpretation of ethics as an “aesthetics (...)

  • Who's Afraid of Epigenetics? Habits, Instincts, and Charles Darwin’s Evolutionary Theory.Mauro Mandrioli & Mariagrazia Portera - 2021 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 43 (1):1-23.
    Our paper aims at bringing to the fore the crucial role that habits play in Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by means of natural selection. We have organized the paper in two steps: first, we analyse value and functions of the concept of habit in Darwin's early works, notably in his Notebooks, and compare these views to his mature understanding of the concept in the Origin of Species and later works; second, we discuss Darwin’s ideas on habits in the light (...)
