"This selection of groundbreaking essays offers a significant and long overdue reassessment of the aims and intentions of European architecture and urbanism over the period 1880-1960. It pursues those stimuli to human creativity - myth, history, spirituality - which have not been admitted to the standard histories of twentieth-century architecture and urbanism. Nine chapters by distinguished scholars focus on the city as the dominant generator of social, political and cultural institutions and structures in late nineteenth and twentieth-century Europe"--Publisher description
Metropolis Berlin : 1880-1940( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metropolis Berlin: 1880-1940 reconstitutes the built environment of Berlin during the period of its classical modernity using over two hundred contemporary texts, virtually all of which are published in English translation for the first time. They are from the pens of those who created Berlin as one of the world's great cities and those who observed this process: architects, city planners, sociologists, political theorists, historians, cultural critics, novelists, essayists, and journalists. Divided into nineteen sections, each prefaced by an introductory essay, the account unfolds chronologically, with the particular structural concerns of the moment addressed in sequence--be they department stores in 1900, housing in the 1920s, or parade grounds in 1940. Metropolis Berlin: 1880-1940 not only details the construction of Berlin, but explores homes and workplaces, public spaces, circulation, commerce, and leisure in the German metropolis as seen through the eyes of all social classes, from the humblest inhabitants of the city slums, to the great visionaries of the modern city, and the demented dictator resolved to remodel Berlin as Germania"--
Beyond the finite : the sublime in art and science by Roald Hoffmann( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are many sublimes. In the eighteenth century, the sublime was summoned to address an object that existed beyond reason and measure. Terror, the spontaneous response to mountainous landscapes or great cataracts, gave way to delight as our powers of reason were summoned to reassert the power of the human mind over nature. And our understanding of this process is heightened as contemporary neurophysiology charts the landscape of our emotions and aesthetic judgments. The sublime offers a fruitful meeting ground across many disciplines, for in science as in art, every day brings the entirely new, the extreme, and the unrepresentable. Through contributions from nine prominent scholars, this book looks at the genuine twin claims of art and science to the sublime. The explorations within Beyond the Finite range from the images taken by the Hubble Telescope to David Bohm's quantum romanticism, from Kant and Burke to a "downward spiraling infinity" of the twenty-first century sublime. Squarely positioned at the interface between science and art, this volume captures a remarkable variety of perspectives, with neuroscience, chemistry, astronomy, physics, film, painting, and music-all illuminating the sublime experience."--Jacket
