Drawing A Hypothesis
33,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Drawing a Hypothesis is a reader on the ontology of forms of visualisation and on the development of the diagrammatic perspective and its use in contemporary art, science, and theory. Based on his artistic practice, Nikolaus Gansterer reveals drawing as a core medium of research, which enables the emergence of new narratives by tracing the speculative and performative potential of diagrams. Due to its ability to mediate between perception and reflection, drawing plays a fundamental role in the production and communication of knowledge. The book is a rich compendium of figures of thought, which moves from scientific representation through artistic interpretation, and vice versa.

The Spatial Logic of Social Struggle
113,90 CHF *

Pierre Bourdieu's theory of practice is widely regarded as among the most innovative and illuminating fruits of recent social thought. As evidence mounts that the 'spatial turn' in the social sciences and humanities is no mere theoretical fad, but rather an enduring paradigm of social and cultural research, Bourdieu's status as a profoundly spatial thinker takes on a renewed importance. The Spatial Logic of Social Struggle: A Bourdieuian Topology focuses on Bourdieu's philosophy of space, arguing that space is at once a condition for social knowledge, a methodological instrument, and a physical context for practice. By considering Bourdieu's theory of social space and fields alongside his several accounts of socially potent physical spaces, Nikolaus Fogle develops an understanding of the systematic co-determinations between social and physical space. He traces Bourdieu's ideas about the spatiality of social life through his investigations of Algerian peasant villages and Gothic cathedrals, as well as spaces of class, lifestyle and cultural creation, revealing that social and environmental struggles are only logical insofar as they are topological. He also demonstrates how a Bourdieuian dialectical understanding of social and physical space can be brought to bear on contemporary issues in architecture and urban development. This book will be useful and accessible not only to philosophers, but also to architects, geographers, sociologists, and other scholars in the social sciences and humanities who take an interest in the social theory of space.

GENESIS In his inaugural novel, Nikolaus Baker takes the reader through a hidden fantasy world that revives an enigma that has endured for centuries. Genesis is not a religious story, it is a dark fantasy. There is an ancient quest that continues for a hidden knowledge that brings power, corruption, and death in a dark tale that originates in the remote Scottish village of Mauchline where tranquillity is about to change when a freak earthquake hits and precipitates a dramatic fall in temperature. Meanwhile, in Vatican City secrecy surrounds an untraceable security breach in the computerised nerve-centre of papal authority. This has consequences for the suspect Cardinal Giovanni Dalla Gassa. He believes in the legendary links to God, each link hidden in different locations and thought to exhibit magical and powerful properties. Powers that would tip the cosmic and spiritual balance in favour of the holder. He must have them all. The mystery thickens with the disappearance of a senior I.T. systems administrator Michaelangelo and the torment of his close friend and colleague I.T. expert Francesca DeRose. Chased for her life, she unknowingly becomes lost inside the catacombs where the cursed Abaddon Clerics lurk… the unliving. What links the hub of Catholicism with what was once the heart of covenanting Scotland? The prophecy. Heed it well. Genesis is a mystery wrapped within layers of an enigma, tied up by networks and packaged in history. Readers will enjoy the fast-moving action and fascinating twists that Baker describes with vivacity and invention. A compelling read. I thoroughly enjoyed this first novel by Nikolaus Baker. I did not expect its twist into the dark side. It ended with a real cliff hanger and I can't wait to read the sequel, Devil's Temple. Is this really a holy mission to find God or is it a supernatural grail quest to the grave…
