 CONTEXT: Curtis White
The Middle Mind's motto could be "Promise him culture but give him TV." And so the Middle Mind novelist provides narrative art of the highest aspirations that, minus a few poetical profusions and recondite bits of diction, could pass for pulp fiction.
Ironically, the ultimate retort to my critique of Balsamic Dreams could very well be that my thesis about the Middle Mind simply confirms Queenan's propositions about Boomers because the Middle Mind is what you get when Boomers take over high culture.
One of the most common gambits of the Middle Mind is to claim to provide high culture while really providing something a good deal less.

Mind share abstracts from culture and history, leading to brands that have little relevance in the culture.
I use a case study of Snapples' rise to iconic stature in the early Nineties to demonstrate the fundamental culture share principles that are required to build icons.
These principles are today unknown to managers because they are ensconced in what I call the mind share model of branding.

MIND THE GAP is proposing a sort of change of local industry, looking to bring about a milieu that would cultivate dissent instead of policing it, a vibe that would free up consciousness instead of dimming it, releasing the lowest-common-denominator mentality of exploitive business and instead harbouring a free exploration of contemporary arts and culture.
MIND THE GAP suggests the obstruction of emergent arts business (and the more innovative economies like eco-culture and whole food cultivation) exists both at the by-law level and in the rote dictums of conventional business wisdom.
TORONTO - Hot on the heels of a successful campaign kick-off on June 11th down at the lakefront's next-culture hot spot, the new Bambu, MIND THE GAP is launching a second night of free musical performance complete with an indoor market featuring independent vendors.

 Early Culture Theory: A Critique of the Enlightenment Project
But the philosophical climate in middle Europe around the previous turn of the century was chock-full of Schopenhauerian themes: for instance, the notion that will and representation, body and mind, nature and culture, subject and object form a fundamental unity, the idea that the heart (desires) is stronger than the mind (reason).
For instance, it focused on the Enlightenment idea that culture in the sense of civilization and progress is a force that will overcome tradition, habits, cults and passions.
Traditionally, this dualism has been conceived to be a schism between nature and culture, and it has been interpreted in such a way that society / culture would triumph over the individual / nature.

 Solar Youth Culture
The mid to late sixties youth culture was the first tide of youth to reject on mass, old fashioned values and to view themselves instead as belonging to a new global community.
As urban youth culture goes increasingly out of control, it becomes more tribal, vibrant and chaotic; less hierarchal, more holistic, and as the primitive re-emerges, it does so in a predictable fashion as already dictated by the personal, inner infant.
The mind-expansion of the late Sixties was replaced by a feeling of mind-contraction, separation and imploding hatred, all celebrated with plenty of fun and gusto.

 How To Become A Hacker
The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture.
Because the "invisible college" that is hacker culture is a loose and informal one, the role of gatekeeper is informal too.
Hackers will sometimes do things that may seem repetitive or boring to an observer as a mind-clearing exercise, or in order to acquire a skill or have some particular kind of experience you can't have otherwise.

If debate about cultural industry is to go beyond the rhetoric of simply affirming these changing values, it needs to engender some kind of sustainable economic model that helps these values survive and this in my mind still requires a broader social responsibility engendered by certain top down models.

 Chapter XVI
That culture has not been received as a correct or legitimate construct is largely due to the racial politics of the times and to the implicitly ethnocentric denial that diversity and difference are effectively consequences of cultural reality and not political ideologies.
Culture of course implicated itself very early in the adaptive survival and evolutionary success of humankind, and human culture is unique in the world, due primarily to its symbolic structuration.
And when we refer to the symbolic construction of human reality, we are talking necessarily of mind and of the ideational and noetic properties of the human mind.

A Whole New Mind is a worthwhile read for anyone to whom the idea of brain lateralization is a foreign concept, especially as it relates to emergent changes in the cognitive foundations of culture.
Daniel Pink's new book, A Whole New Mind, outlines the cognitive shift in culture in terms of brain lateralization -; the big word used by brain researchers in discussing the specialty functions of the brain's right and left hemispheres.

Basically, I see that the memory palace was absolutely an oral exercise in that it forces me to bring up pictures rather than words in my mind.
Also, as Jennie mentioned in her journal, I am impressed with the fact that whenever I hear any of the titles from the list, my mind immediately jumps to the object with which I connected the title.

 Klados: Culture of Death
The aestheticism of these activists is a culture of death: all their activity is abstract, within the mind, extraordinarily shut from the realities of life and death.
More to the point, the fanatical "culture of life" argument seems to be held dearest by those aesthetes who would like an eternal sunshine of the spotless mind: Death must be erased from our culture.
I'm also assuming that among the "God hates fags" segment of culture-of-lifers — and there can be no doubt such a segment exists — the punishment of AIDS comes to those who deserve death.

This essentially because the aims of these two cultural approaches are the opposite: arts look deep inside the mind, and try to extract from that the beauty; sciences explore the universe outside man, they try to understand it and conquer it.

 Boston.com / News / Boston Globe / Ideas / Misreading 'The Arab Mind'
Patai's 1973 book "The Arab Mind," an unnamed academic told Hersh, had become "the bible of the neocons on Arab behavior." In his discussion with conservative prowar intellectuals, the same academic told Hersh, two themes predominated: "One, that Arabs only understand force, and, two, that the biggest weakness of Arabs is shame and humiliation."
In Patai's case, his methodology was itself based on a fatally flawed set of assumptions -- most importantly, that there is one entirely homogenous Arab culture, derived from nomadic Bedouin culture.
(A longtime resident of Jerusalem, he also penned a book titled "The Jewish Mind.") For such scholars, a set of sweeping generalizations about the personality of an entire people could be extrapolated from dubious anecdotal and literary references.
