9780997325003: Call of the Active Mind

“Robert Rose-Coutre is interested in what television has done to human society and the human brain since it became omnipresent in our lives in the mid-20th century. His book Call of the Active Mind summarizes what he has learned from years of studying research into this interesting topic. Rather than being a scientist, he’s a science popularizer. His goal is to make all that research accessible to the average reader. He reports that much of what is wrong with contemporary society can be traced to the mind-deadening effects of TV. He tells us that in the first 24 years of life, people spend more than 25,000 hours passively watching television. Passive watching replaces active living. That leads to psychological and physical damage. He sketches a scary scenario, but it’s not entirely bleak. Two-thirds of this 250-page book cover suggestions for reversing those trends, and, yes, they do involve turning off the TV. Rose-Coutre includes a 10-page bibliography and extensive endnotes so that you can follow up on his research if you want to. ... It may provide you with the information you need to back up something your intelligence has already been telling you.” —Mensa Bulletin, September 2016

Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.The book traces brain passivity from TV and other effortless-electronic entertainment referencing scientific studies and experience. Since the introduction of Televisions into Americas living room, most people receive tens of thousands of hours less development in every area of life. From the 1950s to today, TV has dramatically changed peoples minds from active to passive.

The book connects the dots between the effects of TV with the unhealthy outcomes present today. The book clearly demonstrates that TV pacifies the brain, then the book provides paths to more active lifestyles. The unique voice instructs, inspires, and entertains the reader, providing much-needed information to regain a healthier society. The main themes are Active Mind versus Passive Mind Thoughtful travel through life, versus being entertained through life Development versus atrophy Being fully human versus being only human Were all in this together versus Im in it for me This item ships from multiple locations.
