  1. Ayca Boylu (2010). How Understanding Makes Knowledge Valuable. Canadian Journal of Philosophy 40 (4):591-609.score: 240.0
    Many have suggested that understanding is a worthier goal for theoretical reflection than is propositional knowledge.1 Some have even claimed that, unlike knowledge, understanding is always intrinsically valuable.2 In this essay, I aim only to show that there is a basic value in understanding and that when knowledge conduces to understanding, it gets this basic value extrinsically from understanding. After distinguishing two kinds of understanding, namely, teleological and non-teleological understanding, I will conclude that teleological understanding has more of this basic (...)

    The practice of meditation has seen a tremendous increase in the western world since the 60s. Scientific interest in meditation has also significantly grown in the past years; however, so far, it has neglected the idea that different type of meditations may drive specific cognitive-control states. In this study we investigate the possible impact of meditation based on focused attention (FA) and meditation based on open monitoring (OM) on creativity tasks tapping into convergent and divergent thinking. Here we show that (...)

  6. Lorenza S. Colzato, Ayca Szapora Ozturk, Justine Nienke Pannekoek & Bernhard Hommel (2013). The Impact of Physical Exercise on Convergent and Divergent Thinking. Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 7:824.score: 3.0
    Anecdotal literature suggests that creative people sometimes use bodily movement to help overcome mental blocks and lack of inspiration. Several studies have shown that physical exercise may sometimes enhance creative thinking, but the evidence is still inconclusive. In this study we investigated whether creativity in convergent- and divergent-thinking tasks is affected by acute moderate and intense physical exercise in athletes (n=48) and non-athletes (n=48). Exercise interfered with divergent thinking in both groups. The impact on convergent thinking, the task that presumably (...)
