Ove Arup : masterbuilder of the twentieth century by Peter Jones( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: In 1946 Ove Arup, a leading engineer of the twentieth century, founded a firm of consulting engineers that brought to fruition such iconic structures as the Sydney Opera House, the Olympic Village in Beijing, London's Millennium Bridge, the Beaubourg Centre in Paris, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, and Kansai Airport in Japan among many others. Devoted to a "commonsense" reform of engineering and architectural practice, Arup (1895-1988) pioneered the way for modern architects and engineers to collaborate successfully and responsibly on large projects. This is the first biography of the great and versatile engineer, complete with some 80 historic photographs that have never been published before. Peter Jones, the first researcher to have full access to the vast private Arup archives, tells the complete story of Ove Arup's extraordinary life, his social, aesthetic, and environmental concerns, and his practical contributions during a period of political and technological upheaval. Jones also offers a revelatory new account of the Sydney Opera House and the character of those involved in its complex construction

Elements of criticism by Henry Home Kames( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With respect to the present undertaking, it is not the author's intention to compose a regular treatise upon each of the fine arts; but only, in general, to exhibit their fundamental principles, drawn from human nature, the true source of criticism. The fine arts are intended to entertain us, by making pleasant impressions; and, by that circumstance, are distinguished from the useful arts. But in order to make pleasant impressions, we ought to know what objects are naturally agreeable, and what naturally disagreeable. That subject is here attempted, as far as necessary for unfolding the genuine principles of the fine arts; and the author assumes no merit from his performance, but that of evincing that these principles, as well as every just rule of criticism, are founded upon the sensitive part of our nature. The author also attempts to explain the nature of Man, considered as a sensitive being capable of pleasure and pain"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
The reception of David Hume in Europe by Peter Jones( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This is the first collection of essays to consider how and where Hume's works were initially understood throughout Europe. They reflect on how early European responses to Hume relied on available French translations, and concentrated on his Political Discourses and his History, and how later German translations enabled professional philosophers to discuss his more abstract ideas. Also explored is the idea that continental readers were not able to judge the accuracy of the translations they read, nor did many consider the contexts in which Hume was writing: rather, they were intent on using what they read for their own purposes

Elements of criticism by Henry Home Kames( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work examines the Fine Arts and attempts to form a standard of taste, by unfolding those principles that ought to govern the taste of every individual. To refine our taste with respect to beauties of art or of nature, is scarce endeavoured in any seminary of learning; a lamentable defect, considering how early in life taste is susceptible of culture, and how difficult to reform it if unhappily perverted. To furnish materials for supplying that defect, was an additional motive for the present undertaking." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
