Understanding computers and cognition : a new foundation for design by Terry Winograd( Book )

67 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding Computers and Cognition presents an important and controversial new approach to understanding what computers do and how their functioning is related to human language, thought, and action. While it is a book about computers, Understanding Computers and Cognition goes beyond the specific issues of what computers can or can't do. It is a broad-ranging discussion exploring the background of understanding in which the discourse about computers and technology takes place. Understanding Computers and Cognition is written for a wide audience, not just those professionals involved in computer design or artificial intelligence. It represents an important contribution to the ongoing discussion about what it means to be a machine, and what it means to be human
Building trust in business, politics, relationships, and life by Robert C Solomon( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Arabic and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Building Trust, Robert C. Solomon and Fernando Flores offer compelling answers to these questions. They argue that trust is not something that simply exists from the beginning, something we can assume or take for granted; that it is not a static quality or ʺsocial glue.ʺ Instead, they assert that trust is an emotional skill, an active and dynamic part of our lives that we build and sustain with our promises and commitments, our emotions and integrity. In looking closely at the effects of mistrust, such as insidious office politics that can sabotage a company's efficiency, Solomon and Flores demonstrate how to move from naïve trust that is easily shattered to an authentic trust that is sophisticated, reflective, and possible to renew. As the global economy makes us more and more reliant on ʺstrangers, ʺ and as our political and personal interactions become more complex, Building Trust offers invaluable insight into a vital aspect of human relationships
Disclosing new worlds : entrepreneurship, democratic action, and the cultivation of solidarity by Charles Spinosa( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the authors, there are two major perils to history-making in Western society. One is the Cartesian tradition, which celebrates stepping back from everyday life to understand the world on the basis of rational deliberation. Against this, the authors advocate an intense involvement in the anomalies of everyday life as a means to understand the world and the changes it needs. The second is the neo-Nietzschean tendency to embrace radical, individual change for its own sake. Now that anyone can log on to the Internet to try on a new personality, the authors argue, it becomes increasingly urgent that we retrieve our history-making skills, both in our everyday lives and in our public roles
