Abstract

This study presents that the computer game is being philosophized as an object of thoughts that generates a number of philosophical discourses. In order to define the concept of philosophizing computer game, my paper examines with BCI (Brain-Computer Interaction) and reconsiders the rule of the game in the conflict between the game and the narrative. It proposes that the philosophizing computer game with BCI contributes to the decolonizing knowledge enabling new forms of collaborations between sciences, engineering, arts, and design.
