  • While the consumption of prestige or status products involves purchasing a higher-priced product to embellish one‘s ego (Eastman et al. 1997), the term ―luxury‖ and the consumption of luxury goods involves purchasing a product that represents value to both, to the individual and their reference group. Therefore, in addition to the socially oriented luxury brand consumption and the human desire ‗to impress others‘, a personally oriented type of consumption should be considered in the marketing management of luxury brands.

  • Against this background, considering the limited empirical attention within the marketing-related literature regarding the measurement of the perceived luxury value of a product or a brand, the first step is to develop a scale that measures the sub-dimensions of luxury value perception. Even if the overall luxury value level of a certain product or brand may be perceived equally across national borders, a differentiated measurement may reveal that the overall luxury value perception is a combination of different evaluations with regard to the sub- dimensions.

  • We believe that two fundamental developments afforded researchers a third chance to consolidate the field of neuroaesthet- ics around the turn of the millennium. First, the notion of a single special mechanism underlying aesthetic experiences has been dropped in favor of the view that aesthetic appreciation and re- lated phenomena rely on several general mechanisms, including processes of perception, memory, attention, decision-making, and reward and emotion (Chatterjee, 2004a; Leder, Belke, Oeberst, & Augustin, 2004).

  • Enriching opportunity - not sincere apology. Prior to a large-scale extension project that would mean put- ting up walls to screen off the building sites inside the terminal, this was the slogan Copenhagen Airports adapted. When Copen- hagen was Cultural City of Europe in 1996, several shops in Terminal 2 were to be renovated and the decision was made to put art on the temporary walls rather than the usual ‘sorry for the inconvenience’ signs.

  • Perhaps the most important finding of this research is the shared view of social media as a tool for women’s empowerment. The majority of respondents felt that social media had the potential to be an empowering and engaging tool for women, whether in social, economic, legal, political or civic arenas. These perceptions contrast with the reality of gender inequalities that persist in the Arab region when it comes to these domains. In that sense, social media can potentially be a “change agent” towards women’s empowerment in Arab societies.

  • In a culture like ours, long accustomed to splitting and dividing all things as a means of control, it is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that, in operational and practical fact, the medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium-- that is, of any extension of ourselves -- result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology. Thus, with automation, for example, the new patterns of human association tend to eliminate jobs, it...

  • Ten years ago when I wrote the foreword to the first edition of this book, the concept of women’s health was changing at a rapid pace. The focus was just shifting from solely reproductive issues and biological factors, to an expanded perception that women’s health encompasses biological, familial, cultural, economic, emotional, psychological, and behavioral elements of each woman and her sociopolitical environment, beyond just the reproductive organs and across her entire lifespan.

  • Our model might be a useful instrument for both academics and practitioners who want to better understand consumer behavior; it may also serve as a basis to successfully create, market and monitor luxury brands or products in a cross- cultural context. Even if the world of luxury products is not homogeneous, we believe that the underlying consumer motives and desires transcend national boundaries in a structure that derives from the individual‘s situation and the luxury value dimensions.

  • Real and perceived quality gaps in public coverage and delivery systems serve as an impetus for PHI purchases in some countries. Waiting times, increasing demand for choice, and perceptions of inadequacy of public systems are leading motivations in Ireland, Australia, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. Where public cover is not provided, primary PHI policies are purchased mainly to minimise the financial risks associated with illness. Finally, the diversity in consumer attitudes and preferences is difficult to compare across countries.

  • The anthropology of aesthetics as I see it, then, consists in the comparative study of valued perceptual experience in different societies. While our common human physiology no doubt results in our having universal, generalized responses to certain stimuli, perception is an active and cognitive process in which cultural factors play a dominant role. Perceptions are cultural phenomena.
