The Shape Of Time


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Arising from the study of art history, this book presents a radically new approach to the problem of historical change. George Kubler draws upon new insights in fields such as anthropology and linguistics and replaces the notion of style with the idea of a linked succession of works distributed in time as recognizably early and late versions of the same action. The result is a view of historical sequence aligned on continuous change more than upon the ecstatic concept of style--the usual basis for conventional histories of art.

The Shape Of Things To Come An Impassioned View


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

India is in the throes of transition-from a primarily feudal agrarian society to a modern, industrial one. For the transition to be successful, however, Markandey Katju says that the country needs to rid itself of the ills of the feudal days. But perturbed by the growing incidents of communalism, racial and lingual strife, corruption and persisting issues of poverty, casteism and unemployment, he is sceptical of the change arriving anytime soon. He argues that this turbulent transition might last for another twenty-odd years. In this timely collection of his views, Katju suggests that influential politicians and their governance are not enough, but a scientific mission for national reconstruction is the need of the hour to bring India into its own as a developed and egalitarian society. In his trademark no-holds-barred approach, the author holds up a mirror to the citizens of India and where they could be headed-so that from the dark times emerges a shining vision of the nation its people deserve. His forthright and unreserved views in The Shape of Things to Come give an important perspective to judge India's future.

Shape Of Things


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book presents for the first time in English an array of essays on design by the seminal media critic and philosopher Vilém Flusser. It puts forward the view that our future depends on design. In a series of insightful essays on such ordinary "things" as wheels, carpets, pots, umbrellas and tents, Flusser emphasizes the interrelationships between art and science, theology and technology, and archaeology and architecture. Just as formal creativity has produced both weapons of destruction and great works of art, Flusser believed that the shape of things (and the designs behind them) represents both a threat and an opportunity for designers of the future.

""The Shape of Things" has always given me the most intense satisfaction", wrote Francis Lee Jaques (1887-1969). "Everything one sees and senses.... Such beauty one wants to preserve -- to make it available to others". Capturing on canvas the profound beauty he saw in nature, "Lee" Jaques rose to the top ranks of American wildlife painters.
