Twilight, Hunger Games, L'Alchimista, Il codice da Vinci:come si costruisce un successo editoriale di dimensioni planetarie? Non era mai accaduto che i romanzi – certi romanzi – avessero tanto successo e generassero volumi di vendite così possenti come negli ultimi vent'anni. La serie di Harry Potter, le trilogie di Twilight e Hunger Games, i romanzi di Coelho, le detective story diStieg Larsson e Dan Brown, da Il codice da Vinci a Inferno, i romanzi di Murakami o opere come Il cacciatore di aquiloni e Cinquanta sfumature di grigio, sono diventati successi mondiali da milioni di copie vendute. Quali sono i motivi di questo successo? Bisogni profondi a cui queste narrazioni si ispirano ma anche fattori produttivi impensabili solo pochi anni fa: dalla tendenza intermediale per cui un libro viene concepito da subito per essere adattato a film, videogame, graphic novel, allo sviluppo di comunità di lettori-fan che danno vita a un flusso continuo di prodotti paralleli all'opera originaria – prequel, sequel, spin off, fake, fanzine.

Studying narratives is often the best way to gain a good understanding of how various aspects of human information are organized and integrated—the narrator employs specific informational methods to build the whole structure of a narrative through combining temporally constructed events in light of an array of relationships to the narratee and these methods reveal the interaction of the rational and the sensitive aspects of human information. Computational and Cognitive Approaches to Narratology discusses issues of narrative-related information and communication technologies, cognitive mechanism and analyses, and theoretical perspectives on narratives and the story generation process. Focusing on emerging research as well as applications in a variety of fields including marketing, philosophy, psychology, art, and literature, this timely publication is an essential reference source for researchers, professionals, and graduate students in various information technology, cognitive studies, design, and creative fields.

What is healing? What really determines it? How can we make it happen? It is increasingly clear that there is not just one single kind of medicine and that paths to healing flow through the integration of multiple pieces of knowledge and the combination of many perspectives. In light of the latest research into neurophysiology, psyche science and quantum physics, this book outlines the seven principles of the powerful interaction between psyche and body in healing processes, providing scientific answers to questions about the mechanisms which trigger it and identifying therapies that allow us to turn these internal switches on. This is demonstrated through reflections, examples, and real cases shared by the author, a psychiatrist and doctor who has completed several rigorous trainings but maintains an open mind and has been committed for more than 15 years to seek healing of serious illnesses in the psychosomatic unit by using therapeutic synergies that strengthen official care practices with innovative treatments, with her passionate work to painlessly repair suffering, with the patient, or rather the person, always and constantly at the centre.
