It’s March 2019, and I have a new book-chapter out. Seems that my (2016) PhD on movie creativity is still bearing some fruit…?

The Holon/Parton Structure of the Meme, or The Unit of Culture

in

AMaTiAI,CSandHCI v2

The citation for it (…if you like that kind of thing?) is:

Holon Parton structure of the meme in AMTAI, CS & HCI - 2019

Abstract: This chapter uses systems theory and complexity theory to describe the holon/parton structure of the unit of culture, also known as the meme. The structure of the unit of culture viewed as the holon-parton is a conceptual, theoretical, practical, and scientific tool for identifying and analyzing units (as parts, and as wholes), potentially within all symbol systems in culture. The theoretical perspective adopted in this chapter is evolutionary systems theory. Memes are defined as units of culture, or ideas, processes, or products.

And, the chapter has some diagrams, something like this in it:

…In fact, this new (2019) chapter is, a reprint, of this (2017) chapter:

StoryAlity #144 – The structure of the meme, the unit of culture in: The Encyclopedia of Information Science & Technology, (Velikovsky 2017)

Encyc of IS&T 4th Edn

Encyclopedia of Information Science & Technology (4th Edn, 2017)

…Which, was a reworking of this (2016) chapter, from the Appendix of my (2016) PhD on movie/screenwriting creativity:

StoryAlity #132 – The holon/parton structure of the Meme, the unit of culture – and the narreme, or unit of story – book chapter (Velikovsky 2016)

CTFMDApps

Creative Technologies for Multidisciplinary Applications (2016)

…Anyways; always nice to have a new book-chapter out~!

And so – good to see that, the PhD has some memes (units of culture), that are still spreading in culture…

And actually, the (2016) chapter (my PhD Appendix) was also reprinted in another book, Technology Adoption and Social Issues: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applicationsin 2018:

The structure of the meme in Technology Adoption and Social Issues

Hershey, PA: IGI Global.

Also – if you like this chapter on memes (side note: Movies are memes. Popular movies are viral memes) – you may also like, this article:

Thanks for reading~!

Comments always welcome.
