I have chosen to present topic 8, " How is our understanding of language similar to the way we perceive reality with our senses?". I chose this topic because language and sense perception are related, and it is an interesting idea to compare them with one another.I intend on defining, comparing, and relating language and sense perception and how they both influence in perceiving reality, together and individually. An example of this would be during a crime scene, where one side describes what happened, while the other is at the scene of the crime sensing everything around them with their eyes, touch, smell, taste and hearing. I will use examples like such, to help support my ideas and give examples for the audience to understand.
Include a real world example to use as your introduction, and an outline of your arguments.
Outline of Presentation 6) Which senses are most important in our interaction with the arts?
1)The first thing in the presentation is to define what is "arts" and how do we interact with it.
2) The second thing is to list the senses that we feel that are most important for the interaction with the arts and give instruments that are used and examples of how our senses work with them or influence our performance.
3) Discuss the senses that we listed and give examples of when they are used, thus explaining their importance.
1. It is important to determine certain words that pertain as part of our question, In this case the word "arts" is important to define as there are so many different interpretations of "art" with so many different things that can be perceived as "art".
2. The question specifically asks which senses are most important and we feel that all of them play a role in our interaction. The three that we believe are most important are our sense of sight, touch, and hearing. Taste and smell are important as well but not as important.
3. With these three sense we will discuss each of them and their effects and how they allow us to interact with the arts.
For my presentation I plan on doing an interactive hook into the topic and ask some questions (such as my questions from the last blog entry) to get the audience thinking. I will introduce my topic and the knowledge issues I wrote in the last blog entry. My hook will be a real-life example where sense is essentially incommunicable. For example, the feeling I get when I dance on stage is an incredibly amazing feeling. I will try to explain how this feeling to the audience but words can't do the feeling justice. I know its impossible for the audience to feel exactly the same way as me because none of them have experienced exactly what I have experienced. This leads into my knowledge issues and the question, to what extent is sense and feeling communicable based on similar experience? This introduction will probably last about 1 to 2 minutes. My next goal would be to explain my opinion of the issue using more real-life examples as proof and Huxley's ideas (as shown in the quote along with my topic). I want people to understand my ideas so I will have some visuals and perhaps a short power point to communicate my ideas. Visuals will help my audience understand my point of view and will make it a more interesting presentation. This will last about 2 minutes. For the next part, I want to get my audience involved and do a short stimulation and give a couple people a chance to explain their feeling about a certain powerful image in order to prove that sense is incommunicable. This will last about 2 minutes. I might spend a brief moment explaining the counter-argument and how I can argue against it. Lastly, I will end with a conclusion and an idea to get the audience thinking. My question will be about the future and technology and if the possibility of communication of senses is possible in the future.
"Is the nature of sense perception such that sensations are essentially private and
First we will catch the audience’s attention with a relatable skit about Marina and my different interpretations of the topic, which will introduce our topic and work as a hook. We will then proceed to introduce the different senses, by PowerPoint, and explain a little bit about them. By using examples, such as taste buds, music taste, scent, etc., we will portray the idea that everyone has different sense perceptions. We will then introduce the question about the extent of which we can express and portray our feelings and senses, and if as a matter of fact, the nature of sense perception is essentially private and incommunicable. After explaining the previously mentioned things, we will end with a conclusion that will summarize the presentation and leave the audience thinking.
P.S. I did not work with a partner Mr. Smith, so I had no obligation of posting an outline according to the post's instructions.
