Overall remarks and questions

  • based on the example mentioned in Cyborg Anthropology: A Short Introduction I was expecting a conceptual framework, a mapping between games and physiological or social basis yet I did not find it in the book.
    • content was more oriented toward what games could be good for and a bit about the role of few during history

Synthesis

So in the end, it was about X and was based on Y.

Critics

Point A, B and C are debatable because of e, f and j.
