Quintessence Book Review:

Through the first half of the twentieth century, analytic philosophy was dominated by Russell, Wittgenstein, and Carnap. Influenced by Russell and especially by Carnap, another towering figure, Willard Van Orman Quine (1908–2000) emerged as the most important proponent of analytic philosophy during the second half of the century. Yet with twenty-three books and countless articles to his credit—including, most famously, Word and Object and "Two Dogmas of Empiricism"—Quine remained a philosopher's philosopher, largely unknown to the general public. Quintessence for the first time collects Quine's classic essays (such as "Two Dogmas" and "On What There Is") in one volume—and thus offers readers a much-needed introduction to his general philosophy. Divided into six parts, the thirty-five selections take up analyticity and reductionism; the indeterminacy of translation of theoretical sentences and the inscrutability of reference; ontology; naturalized epistemology; philosophy of mind; and extensionalism. Representative of Quine at his best, these readings are fundamental not only to an appreciation of the philosopher and his work, but also to an understanding of the philosophical tradition that he so materially advanced.

Pantagruel Book Review:

François Rabelais holds a unique place in the history of world literature, and no more so than for his extraordinary satirical entertainment Gargantua and Pantagruel. Here the first of these volumes is presented in a new and lively translation. Pantagruel recounts the life a popular giant. From his portentous birth and colorful childhood, to his visit to Paris and his travels through Utopia, and not withstanding his enormous appetite, Pantagruel’s history is told with a breathtaking degree of gaiety and wit. Ingeniously coining new expressions, and with an unashamed obsession with bodily functions, Rabelais blends prose and poetry, the sacred and profound, to offer a heady satire of the religious society of his day. The result is a bawdy and brilliant celebration of life.

Treasury of Precious Qualities Book Review:

This book is a commentary by a contemporary master (1897-1975) on a portion of an ancient Tibetan Buddhist teaching. In the Tibetan tradition, it is common for a meditation master to offer explanations and interpretations in this way, in order to share his understanding with students and to shed light on centuries-old texts that may be difficult for contemporary practitioners to fully understand. Such a commentary is usually read at the end of a comprehensive course of study and is designed for seasoned students of Tibetan Buddhism. To make the work more accessible to Western Buddhists, the translators have added detailed notes and appendixes. In this case, the well-known original text by Jigme Lingpa (1730-1798) presents in elegant verse the entire Buddhist path according to the Nyingma school. Because it is pithy and concise and makes use of elaborate poetic language, a commentary is indispensable. The root text consists of two main sections devoted, respectively, to the Sutras and the Tantras. The Sutra section, which is the subject of the present volume, covers the ethical, psychological, and philosophical teachings shared by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. The essential thrust is toward the Mahayana, but the text also addresses questions associated with the Hinayana perspective, such as the fundamental issues of karma and ethics, the four noble truths, and the twelvefold chain of dependent arising.

Interior Architecture Book Review:

Interior Architecture John Kurtich Garret Eakin The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Increased specialization within the design professions has led to a growing separation of architecture, interior design, and the fine arts and limited the development of humanistic architectural space. This book of ideas helps to close this gap by explaining and illustrating principles of interior architecture that are based on a spatial point of view. The authors unveil the essence of ideas that generate physical form and space, as well as emphasize that interior architecture must be regarded as a union of disciplines. They focus on philosophical concepts that make up the history of interior architecture and juxtapose historical and modern examples to explain underlying design principles, exposing the links between art, architecture,and interior design. Particular attention is given to how fusion of interior architecture with other disciplines maximizes the potential of design to provide for human accommodation, comfort, and pleasure. Key topics discussed include three-dimensional development, respect for the enclosing architecture, sensitivity to human experience, the primacy of light and color, and furnishings as an extension of architecture. Case studies of historical, contemporary, and unbuilt examples reveal the reasons behind the creation of designs and the decision-making that accompanied execution of these designs. These examples provide insights into key specialities such as renovation, uses of the computer, and adaptive reuse. Quotes from artists, architects, and designers reinforce the philosophy revealed by the studies. Concepts from related fields such as physics, music, cinema, literature, painting, sculpture, and other fields are included to clarify the creative process. Among the important areas addressed are:The relevance of the fourth dimension as the most profound element of designHow light as the quintessence of spatial definition has been used to define space by masters such as Le Corbusier, Kahn, Aalto, and WrightThe evolution of retail, commercial, residential, and hospitality space from early examples to the presentThe emotional character of interior space established by colorHow furnishings in dialogue with the enclosure provide intimate human comfortHow persisting styles express the spirit of the eraMore than 400 photographs, including 57 in color, offer a stunning visual exploration of path-breaking interior design ideas over the centuries. Far more than a history of the discipline, this guide offers powerful images and provocative ideas that stimulate new ways of thinking about interior design. It is an essential resource for all interior designers, architects, and students.
