What are the most interesting theoretical concepts associated with Max?.. and what would you think are the modern-day relevancies? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:33, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi everyone. I am a psychology major new to wikipedia, and I have been assigned to revamp this page. I have began drafting additions in information I have researched, but in regards to the information already here I am having trouble finding the original sources. Does anyone know where I could check these sources? Any advice given would be appreciated. Thanks. mflynn2 (talk) 13:57, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Here's part of the second paragraph at present:
"The classic Gestalt example is a soap bubble, whose spherical shape is not defined by a rigid template, or a mathematical formula, but rather it emerges spontaneously by the parallel action of surface tension acting at all points in the surface simultaneously. This is in contrast to the "atomistic" principle of operation of the digital computer, where every computation is broken down into a sequence of simple steps, each of which is computed independently of the problem as a whole."
What a poor contrast! If anything, the emergent form of the bubble from interactions between molecules is similar to that of a computer, in that computer users are unconcerned with bits and register-shifting, but regard the computer as a whole. Unfree (talk) 15:32, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
