Modern Sculpture Reader ROUNDHOUSE PUBLISHING GROUP

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This title presents a critical collection of writings on the creation, display, and interpretation of sculpture. In many anthologies of art, sculpture is given short shrift in relation to other media, if it is treated at all. "Modern Sculpture Reader" aims to rectify this situation by presenting a collection of important texts that have defined sculpture's radically changing status and role since the end of the 19th century, a time marked by a general reappraisal of the forms and functions of art. From the rigorously theoretical to the experimental and poetic, "Modern Sculpture Reader" offers a lively discourse on the medium by a range of artists, writers, critics, and poets - Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Claes Oldenberg, Andre Breton, Ezra Pound, and Clement Greenberg - in a variety of genres: poems, lectures, transcribed interviews, newspaper and magazine articles, and artists' statements. These diverse text selections offer valuable insight into the development of the critical language of sculpture and its connections to other media in an era of increasingly conceptual artistic practice.

Realistic Evaluation - 2854186954

Realistic Evaluation Sage Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Realistic Evaluation shows how program evaluation needs to be, and can be bettered. It presents a profound yet highly readable critique of current evaluation practice, and goes on to introduce a 'manifesto' and 'handbook' for a fresh approach. The main body of this book is devoted to the articulation of a new evaluation paradigm, which promises greater validity and utility from the findings of evaluation studies. The authors call this new approach 'realistic evaluation'. The name reflects the paradigm's foundation in scientific realist philosophy, its commitment to the idea that programmes deal with real problems rather than mere social constructions, and its primary intention, which is to inform realistic developments in policy making that benefit programme participants and the public. Ray Pawson and Nicholas Tilley argue with passion that scientific evaluation requires a careful blend of theory and method, quality and quantity, ambition and realism. The book offers a complete blueprint for evaluation activities, running from design to data collection and analysis to the cumulation of findings across programmes and onto the realization of research into policy.The argument is developed using practical examples throughout and is grounded in the major fields of programme evaluation. This book will be essential reading for all those involved in the evaluation process especially those researchers, students and practitioners in the core disciplines of sociology, social policy, criminology, health and education. 'This book is a must for those engaged in the field, providing a fully illustrated text on evaluation with numerous examples from the criminal justice system. Unusually, it offers something for the academic, practitioner and student alike. I found Pawson and Tilley's latest work on evaluation an enjoyable and informative read. For myself their "realistic evaluation" clarified and formalised a jumbled set of ideas I had already been developing. Although not everyone will agree with the methodology proposed by the authors, this book is a valuable read as it will cause most of us at least to review our methodological stance' - International Journal of Police Science and Management 'This is an engaging book with a strong sense of voice and communicative task. The voice is sometimes strident, but always clear.Its communicative qualities are evident equally in its structure: lots of signposting for the reader within and across chapters' - Language Teaching Research 'This provocative, elegant and highly insightful book focuses on the effective incorporation of actual practice into the formulation of evaluation methodology. What a pleasure to read sentences like: "The research act involves "learning" a stakeholder's theories, formalizing them, and "teaching" them back to that informant who is then in a position to comment upon, clarify and further refine the key ideas". Pawson and Tilley have given us a wise, witty and persuasive account of how real practitioner experience might be encouraged to intrude on (and modify) researchers' concepts about program processes and outcomes. This holds important promise for achieving something that is devoutly to be wished: closer interaction among at least some researchers and some policy makers' - Eleanor Chelimsky, Past-President of the American Evaluation Association 'This is a sustained methodological argument by two wordly-wise social scientists.Unashamedly intellectual, theoretically ambitious yet with a clear but bounded conception of evaluation. It is articulate, occasionally eloquent and always iconoclastic, whilst eschewing "paradigm wars". The Pawson and Tilley "realist" call to arms threatens to take no prisoners among experimentalists, constructivists or pluralists. It is the kind of book that clarifies your thoughts, even when you disagree with everything they say' - Elliot Stern, The Tavistock Institute

Formation and Significance of the Christian Biblical Canon CONTINUUM

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book offers a fresh cross-disciplinary approach to the current discussion on the Christian canon formation process. By carefully integrating historical, hermeneutical and theological aspects to account for the emergence of the canon, it seeks to offer a more comprehensive picture of the canon development than has previously been achieved. The formation and continuous usage of the Christian biblical canon is here viewed as an act of literary preservation and actualization of the church's apostolic normative tradition - 'the Scriptures and the Lord' - addressing, first of all, the church, but also the wider society. In order to grasp the complex phenomenon of the biblical canon, the study is divided into four parts, focusing respectively on linguistic and effective-historical, textual and material, performative, and ideational aspects of the canon. Attention is given to the scribal nomina sacra convention, the codex format, oral and written Gospel, early Christian liturgical praxis and the Rule of Faith. Bokedal argues that the canon was formed in a process, with its own particular intention, history, and direction. Throughout the study, history and theology, past and present are considered alongside each other. By using a Gadamerian hermeneutics of tradition, the reader's attention is directed to historical dimensions of the canon and its interpretative possibilities for our time. The notion of effective history (Wirkungsgeschichte), as well as the interaction between text, community and reader are crucial to the argument. The canonical text as text, its interpretation and ritual contextualization are highlighted as unifying elements for the communities being addressed.

Contemporary World Interiors_Yelavich Susan Wydawnictwo: Phaidon

WYDAWNICTWA ALBUMOWE > Design > Projektowanie wnętrz

ISBN: 9780714843360 Autor: Yelavich Susan     Rok wydania: 2007-06-04 Ilość stron: 512 Okładka: twarda Format: 254 x 300 mm "Contemporary World Interiors" takes the reader on a global tour of the best and most provocative interior design and architecture projects of the past 25 years, presenting the characteristic traits, influences, and enduring ideas of the contemporary interior. Rather than simply charting passing trends, author Susan Yelavich, a veteran New York-based curator and critic, describes some 450 specific projects by famous designers and promising newcomers alike, in countries as far-ranging as Russia, Israel, Chile, South Korea, and South Africa, as well as more familiar locales in Europe, Japan, and North America. A carefully edited selection of more than 1000 color photographs and plans illustrates the book, all reproduced at a generous format. The book is organized in 11 chapters by building type, with an introduction that presents an overview of the changes and ideas affecting interior architecture and design over the past three decades. As Yelavich points out, gone are the days when any one aesthetic language dominated, as the International Style did in the years after World War II. The new interior climate is inclusive, and once-alien styles flourish side by side. All kinds of interiors - from the once-minimal loft to the once-antiseptic hospital room - show evidence of a renewed interest in ornament, in craft and materiality, and in spatial complexities, often tempered by modernist, postmodernist, or deconstructivist influences. Each chapter opens with a brief introduction of dominant historical precedents and themes, then moves to detailed descriptions of 20 to 50 individual projects, noting the designer, project name, location, year of completion, and significant aspects of the interior, including its architecture, furnishings, color palette, and materials, as well as the designer's or client's aims. The book begins with chapters on residential interiors - houses, lofts, and apartments - following Yelavich's argument that domestic space has become the catalyst for entirely new ways of thinking about other kinds of interiors, from the office worker's cubicle to the nurse's station to the librarian's reading room. The book moves on to offices, civic spaces, religious spaces, cultural spaces, retail, restaurants, hotels, and therapeutic spaces. Within the chapters, readers will find familiar names and places, such as the Tate Modern in London by Herzog and de Meuron; Nobu restaurant in New York, by David Rockwell; and the thermal baths in Vals, by Peter Zumthor; as well as new discoveries, such as the Psychiatrist Hospital in Zeeland, the Netherlands, by the Dutch firm Mecanoo; the Korean Presbyterian Church in New York, by Greg Lynn; and the Joyce Department Store in Taipei, by the New York firm Tsao and McKown.

'This book will be of interest to educational practitioners, and many other professionals concerned with the education and development of the young' - ESCalate 'A very well-respected book [and a] Curriculum classic...[which offers] balance to current official publications...One of its strengths is the coherent argument that runs throughout. It is very much a product of the wide knowledge and experience of the author.' - Jenny Houssart, Senior Lecturer, Department of Learning, Curriculum & Communication, Institute of Education, University of London, UK Praise for previous editions: 'I use this book as an essential course text for a module on curriculum theory. It is an excellent text for the whole course' 'Vic Kelly's writing is always concise and informative, but also at times challenging' 'A most comprehensive text that takes the reader beyond content/balance issues values, beliefs and assumptions on the curriculum' This is the sixth edition of a book that has been regularly revised and updated since it was first published in the mid-1970s. A V Kelly's now classic work focuses on the philosophical and political dimensions of curriculum, and especially on the implications for schools and societies of various forms of curriculum. The book outlines what form a curriculum should take if it is concerned to promote a genuine form of education for a genuinely democratic society. Kelly summarises and explains the main aspects of curriculum theory, and shows how these can and should be translated into practice, in order to create an educational and democratic curriculum for all schools at all levels. The book also seeks to show that the politicization of the school curriculum has led to the establishment of policies and practices which demonstrate a failure to understand these principles of curriculum theory and practice. As a result, policies and practices have been implemented which fall short of being adequate. In view of the rapid pace of educational change imposed by various governments over the last 35 years, including New Labour, this book is more relevant than ever.

Photosynthesis Springer Netherlands

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Photosynthesis--the capture of light energy by living organisms -is a simple enough concept, but its investigation draws on the resources of disciplines from all fields of science. The aim of this text is to provide a clear, stimulating and essentially affordable coverage for undergraduate students of biology. The activity of science is debate and practical experiment; its product is a body of propositions which at any given time reflects the judgment and prejudices of those taking part. The value of a proposition is related to the conceivable alternatives, and writing it down without its context creates the false impression that science progresses by compilation of an increasing list of absolute truths. It does not; the facts and figures pres ented in the following pages have no intrinsic value unless they can be used by the reader to support an argument or point of view. In short, the reader is urged to respond 'So what?' to every item. Secondly, ideas-like other foods-should be date-stamped; science is inseparable from its history. I have set out time-charts to represent the evolution of our understanding in certain areas. I have assumed that the reader is pursuing a course with a content of biochemistry, microbiology and plant science, or has access to basic texts. I have assumed also that common methods such as spectrophotometry, chromatography and electrophoresis, as well as the techniques of mol ecular biology, will be either part of the same course or in active use nearby.

Strange Ways of God Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Strange Ways of God: A Study in the Book of Job This little book is not in any sense a commentary upon or a critical exposition of the book of Job. The larger part of the material was originally used in a series of lectures intended for a popular audience and designed to increase the interest in, and to aid in a better understanding of this ancient poem. The literary quality of the book of Job is such as to give it a high place among the worlds masterpieces, but the many faulty translations in the Authorized Version, the ill-considered arrangement of the parts of the poem as to their literary form in an ordinary copy of the Scriptures, and a widespread misconception as to the main purpose of the argument, have tended to obscure its beauty. In the main I have used the translation given in the Revised Version and the literary arrangement found in Moulton's Modern Reader's Bible, Here and there, however, I have used my own paraphrase where it seemed to me the essential meaning could be more clearly rendered. I have occasionally quoted together lines which stand apart in the text, without the insertion at the customary marks, but in this I am sure no violence has been done at any point to the authors meaning, nor has the essential course of his argument been in any wise disturbed.

Works of Shakespeare, Vol. 1 of 10 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Works of Shakespeare, Vol. 1 of 10 The present edition of the Works of Shakespeare forms a part of the now well-known Eversley series of the English classics. Its scope and character have been largely determined by the general intention of that series. It is designed, in other words, rather for the cultivated but not learned reader than for the professed Shakespearean or the examinee, though neither of these, it is hoped, will turn to it altogether in vain. The text is founded upon the labours of the editors of the Cambridge and Globe Shakespeares, without following either implicitly. A detailed critical apparatus would have been foreign to the aims of this edition; textual notes have, as a rule, been limited to the two purposes of specifying important departures from the old texts, and, where the old texts are incorrigibly corrupt, of indicating the least unlikely conjectures. The bulk of the notes are intended to provide, in the briefest possible form, such information as may serve to smooth the reader's path without insulting his intelligence. The Introductions offer brief surveys of the literary data of the several plays and poems, with some indication of the bearing of each upon the eternal problem of Shakespeare's mind and art.

Titian, Colonna and the Renaissance Science of Procreation - 2862336879

Titian, Colonna and the Renaissance Science of Procreation Ashgate Publishing Limited

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Titian, Colonna and the Renaissance Science of Procreation" demonstrates that two major monuments of Italian Renaissance culture - Bellini's and Titian's famous series of mytho-poetical paintings for the camerino of Duke Alfonso d'Este of Ferrara, and Francesco Colonna's "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" - were conceived as mnemonic or pedagogical devices aimed at educating the reader/beholder in the medical science of reproductive physiology and the maintenance of sexual health. It is further argued that the learned courtier Mario Equicola, who conceived the pictorial program of Duke Alfonso's camerino, had read Colonna's text and was extensively inspired by its prior literary argument. The study is organized in two parts, intimately interrelated. The first part is a study of Alfonso d'Este's camerino, with a general introduction, individual chapters on each of Bellini's and Titian's four pictorial 'bacchanals', and a conclusion proposing a new and more accurate reconstruction of the layout of the room, also including a completely new way of interpreting the ensemble. The second part of the study concerns Colonna's "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili", again beginning with its own introductory essay and advancing a completely new interpretation of the text. The brief conclusion brings the insights of the two sections together, clarifying the historical relationship between the pictorial and literary works and explaining their larger cultural significance. Emphasizing Equicola's use of the Hypnerotomachia as a model for pictorial invention, the author reveals how Titian's remarkably sensuous paintings and Colonna's erotically-charged romance are related by their common reference to the neo-Aristotelian medical theory of the 'libdinal seasons', and by corollary themes of marriage and sexual consummation. This peculiar intersection of cultural themes came to prominence in the context of a courtly world in which medical science was increasingly brought to bear on the problem of dynastic continuity. While the book thus makes a major contribution to historical and art-historical inquiry into Renaissance notions of sexuality, it also relates this theme to the question of masculine identity and fatherhood, the histories of sexuality and marriage, and the interpretation of courtly art and literature as instruments of political or dynastic ideology. In addition, by grafting together the methods of advanced iconographic philology with those of comparative literature, the author provides a new methodological model that could be applied to other cultural monuments.
