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

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 439 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

Adam Smith reviewed( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the two centuries since the death of Adam Smith, much has been written about his ideas and his works: a comprehensive hagiography has developed which now surrounds, and perhaps even obscures, the author of the WEALTH OF NATIONS." "In ADAM SMITH REVIEWED the contributors take a fresh look at the cogency and value of Smith's work. Respected writers from the different disciplines describe and reconsider Smith's treatment of topics from the full and remarkable range of his interests - astronomy, aesthetics, economics, jurisprudence, rhetoric, moral philosophy. By acknowledging the breadth of the scope, and by recreating the context in which he worked, the editors have brought together a volume which will do much to remove some of times accretions, allowing Smith to be seen less as an icon of economic theory and more as a consistently interesting and provoking thinker."--BOOK JACKET
Philosophy and science in the Scottish enlightenment( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reception of David Hume in Europe by Peter Jones( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 138 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
The reception of Edmund Burke in Europe( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last fifty years the life and work of Edmund Burke (1729-1797) has received sustained scholarly attention and debate. The publication of the complete correspondence in ten volumes and the nine volume edition of Burke's Writings and Speeches have provided material for the scholarly reassessment of his life and works. Attention has focused in particular on locating his ideas in the history of eighteenth-century theory and practice and the contexts of late eighteenth-century conservative thought. This book broadens the focus to examine the many sided interest in Burke's ideas primarily in Europe, and most notably in politics and aesthetics. It draws on the work of leading international scholars to present new perspectives on the significance of Burke's ideas in European politics and culture."--

Elements of criticism by Henry Home Kames( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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)
