Visipix: Mangas by HOKUSAI, Katsushika (1760 - 1849)
"This started one of the most ambitious projects in art: Teaching us all how to see things with our own eyes

Visipix.com publishes here the complete 15 volumes in facsimile quality. This is a world premiere in the internet

The success of western culture is based on the 'Enlightenment': Think with your own brain, find your religion in your own heart. I go that far: I prefer to be wrong with my own brain - and do my darndest to learn, especially learn from others - than to blindly depend on somebody else's belief. We learn this from Socrates, Luther, Lessing, Kant, Popper and others.]

What the western culture achieved verbally, Hokusai does visually. Artistic genius and wise teachings are well balanced. Nothing could be more difficult."

Interesting story, and there is something to be said about incentives, but there is more to behavior than just that and remember that this comes from Alex Tabarrok. As Alfie Kohn said recently: "It's not a coincidence that this incentive-driven model [school reform and "value-added" teacher evaluation] is favored by economists, who have a growing influence on educational matters and who still tend to accept a behaviorist paradigm that most of psychology left behind ages ago." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alfie-kohn/what-passes-for-school-re_b_710696.html
