📒All The Light We Cannot See ✍ Anthony Doerr
📝All the Light We Cannot See Book Synopsis : "From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work"--

📒A Light In The Attic ✍ Christine E. Looser
📝A Light in the Attic Book Synopsis : At one level of analysis a face is merely a visual object; a pattern of light cast across the retina that can be described in terms of its lines, colors, and textures. However, these basic features give rise to the recognition that the face belongs to another living being endowed with the potential for thoughts, feelings, actions and interactions. It is for this reason that faces are exceptionally salient. Accordingly, face perception has been extensively studied, but much of this work has compared human faces to non-face stimuli (e.g., houses, shoes, etc.), which differ in both form (faces have a distinct configuration) and animacy (faces hold cues to life and mind). As a consequence, it is unclear which of these findings reflect the processing of form, the prosessing of animacy, or both. In service of better understanding how the perception of a face drives the recognition of a mind, this dissertation utilized two types of comparisons. First, human faces were compared to object faces that are recognizably face-like but do not possess mental states (e.g. statues, mannequins); this comparison examined how faces with minds are processed as distinct from faces without minds. Second, to investigate the facial cues that convey that a mind is attending and worthy of social-cognitive resources, we compared images of human faces that were mentally engaged to images of faces that were unengaged. Across all studies, an overarching theme emerged in which there are two stages of face perception: rapid, indiscriminate face detection followed by a secondary stage that scrutinizes faces for the presence of mind. This research elucidates how face perception and mind perception interact, helping people to efficiently navigate their social world.
