Описание: How filling life with play whether soccer or lawn mowing, counting sheep or tossing Angry Birds forges a new path for creativity and joy in our impatient age Life is no game. It s demanding, boring, and rarely fun. But what if we ve got games wrong? Playing anything whether an instrument, a sport, or a video game takes hard work and makes absurd demands. Where s the fun in that? In "Play Anything," acclaimed philosopher and award-winning game designer Ian Bogost reveals that play isn t a mindless escape from boring reality. Instead, play is what happens when we accept limitations, narrow our focus, and consequently have fun. Which is also how to live a good life. Manipulating cards to make a poker hand is no different than treating chores and obligations as tools but which we can discover new happiness. Ranging from Internet culture to moral philosophy, from ancient poetics to modern consumerism, "Play Anything" reveals how today s chaotic world can only be tamed and enjoyed when we first impose boundaries on ourselves.

In Unit Operations, Ian Bogost argues that similar principles underlie both literary theory and computation, proposing a literary-technical theory that can be used to analyze particular videogames. Moreover, this approach can be applied beyond videogames: Bogost suggests that any medium -- from videogames to poetry, literature, cinema, or art -- can be read as a configurative system of discrete, interlocking units of meaning, and he illustrates this method of analysis with examples from all these fields. The marriage of literary theory and information technology, he argues, will help humanists take technology more seriously and hep technologists better understand software and videogames as cultural artifacts. This approach is especially useful for the comparative analysis of digital and nondigital artifacts and allows scholars from other fields who are interested in studying videogames to avoid the esoteric isolation of "game studies."
The richness of Bogost's comparative approach can be seen in his discussions of works by such philosophers and theorists as Plato, Badiou, Zizek, and McLuhan, and in his analysis of numerous videogames including Pong, Half-Life, and Star Wars Galaxies. Bogost draws on object technology and complex adaptive systems theory for his method of unit analysis, underscoring the configurative aspects of a wide variety of human processes. His extended analysis of freedom in large virtual spaces examines Grand Theft Auto 3, The Legend of Zelda, Flaubert's Madame Bovary, and Joyce's Ulysses. In Unit Operations, Bogost not only offers a new methodology for videogame criticism but argues for the possibility of real collaboration between the humanities and information technology.
