Book: The Philosophy of Emerging Media

9780190260750A new book on the philosophy of emerging media has been published by Oxford University Press, editors Juliet Floyd and James E. Katz. It does not have a focus on computer games specifically, but the wide variety of issues it discusses should certainly be of interest to our field as well. I have a paper in it called “Agential Properties in Computer Games”, which outlines the idea that games and computer games are based on non-representational “agential properties” projected using the same cognitive mechanisms as social ontologies make use of.
