            Currently regarded as one of the most interesting, relevant, and radical interpreters of architecture in the twenty-first century, contemporary French architect and critic of the art of technology Paul Virilio challenges and breaches the borders of the ever-burgeoning field of st...ructural design. Given the import of his work, its promise and problems, Virilio for Architects presents an innovative introduction to and overview of the contribution to theories and analyses provided by Virilio on architecture, including its specialized vocabularies, practices, professionalization, and modes of communication. Written by a leading contemporary cultural and media theorist, and Virilio specialist the book provides: a focused yet representative treatment of Virilio s key theoretical concepts and themes from across his work on architecture so far focused coverage of Virilio s unconventional architectural ideas and how they function within his highly idiosyncratic approach to the direction architecture should take a reliable introduction to and critical overview of Virilio s inspired and multi-disciplinary informed architectural theory through a concentrated engagement with his writings on architecture, urban space, and the relations between his architectural ideas and those of architecture s creators, contemporary architects a clear outline, exploration, and developmental narrative of the most important Virilian themes, written in a way that can be understood by undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and non-academic readers alike. Virilio has a reputation as a demanding architectural theorist whose writings are difficult to decode and which use specialized theoretical concepts often far removed from the traditions of architectural theory. This book allows students, researchers, and non-academic readers to connect with Virilio s distinctive architectural theories, critical studies, and fresh ideas.

            On the Genealogy of Color: A Case Study in Historicized Conceptual Analysis
             

            On the Genealogy of Color: A Case Study in Historicized Conceptual Analysis (Hardback)

            By Adams, Zed

            • $294.00
            • To Order

            In On the Genealogy of Color, Zed Adams challenges widely held philosophical views about the nature of color, exploring the relevance of the history of color science for contemporary debates in color realism/anti-realism and philosophy of mind. Adams argues that the two sides of ...the contemporary debate on the problem of color realism, Cartesian anti-realism and Oxford realism, are both predicated on an assumption that the concept of color perception is ahistorical and unrevisable. Adams takes issue with this premise and traces the development of theories of color in order to undermine this assumption and open up the conversation about our perception of color. This book makes a significant contribution to recent debates on philosophical methodology by demonstrating the efficacy of using the genealogical method to explore philosophical concepts, and will appeal to philosophers of perception, philosophers of mind, and metaphysicians.

            Rethinking Aesthetics is the first book to bring together prominent voices in the fields of architecture, philosophy, aesthetics, and cognitive sciences to ask you to radically rethink the relationship between body and design. These essays show that aesthetic experiences can be n...urtured at any moment in your everyday life, thanks to recent discoveries by researchers in neuroscience, phenomenology, somatics, and analytic philosophy of the mind, who have made the correlations between aesthetic cognition, the human body, and everyday life much clearer. The essays, by Yuriko Saito, Juhani Pallasmaa, and Richard Shusterman, among others, range from an integrated mind-body approach to chair design, to Zen Buddhist notions of mindfulness, to theoretical accounts of existential relationships with buildings, so that you can see the full spectrum of possible inquiries. If you place the body in the center of design, as Rethinking Aesthetics does, then there are new directions open for you to rethink the limits of both essentialism and skepticism.

            Although various aesthetic themes have preoccupied many major philosophers, from Plato to Goodman, the central questions of the philosophy of art have remained ill-defined. This book gives a concise and systematic account of the leading philosophical ideas about art and aesthetic...s from ancient times to the present day, and goes on to propose a new theory of aesthetic satisfaction and artistic abilities.
