Hearts and Minds / Frank Lantz.

There is a deep schism in the contemporary world between rationality and emotion, reason and intuition, logic and feeling. Games, more than any other form of culture, offer deep insight into this conflict. If we observe them closely, games can reveal the subtle and complex connections between science and art, between objective facts and profound truths, between the fearsome power of conscious, deliberate thought, and the mysterious values that guide and limit that power. This talk will look at how games are made, played and talked about in order to better understand how these different ways of looking at the world interact.
