Alberto Giacometti by Timothy Mathews

Alberto Giacometti: The Art of Relation by Timothy Mathews
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 12 MB
Overview: Alberto Giacometti’s attenuated figures of the human form are among the most significant artistic images of the twentieth century. Jean-Paul Sartre and André Breton are just two of the great thinkers whose thought has been nurtured by the graceful, harrowing work of Giacometti, which continues to resonate with artists, writers and audiences. Timothy Mathews explores fragility, trauma, space and relationality in Giacometti’s art and writing and the capacity to relate that emerges. In doing so, he draws upon the novels of W.G. Sebald, Samuel Beckett and Cees Nooteboom and the theories of Maurice Blanchot and Bertolt Brecht; and recasts Giacometti’s Le Chariot as Walter Benjamin’s angel of history. This book invites readers on a voyage of discovery through Giacometti’s deep concerns with memory, attachment and humanity. Both a critical study of Giacometti’s work and an immersion in its affective power, it asks what encounters with Giacometti’s pieces can tell us about our own time and our own ways of looking; and about the humility of relating to art.

The Edge of Reason by Julian Baggini

The Edge of Reason: A Rational Skeptic in an Irrational World by Julian Baggini
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF reader, 1.6 Mb
Overview: An urgent defense of reason, the essential method for resolving-or even discussing-divisive issues

Reason, long held as the highest human achievement, is under siege. According to Aristotle, the capacity for reason sets us apart from other animals, yet today it has ceased to be a universally admired faculty. Rationality and reason have become political, disputed concepts, subject to easy dismissal.

Julian Baggini argues eloquently that we must recover our reason and reassess its proper place, neither too highly exalted nor completely maligned. Rationality does not require a sterile, scientistic worldview, it simply involves the application of critical thinking wherever thinking is needed. Addressing such major areas of debate as religion, science, politics, psychology, and economics, the author calls for commitment to the notion of a “community of reason,” where disagreements are settled by debate and discussion, not brute force or political power. Baggini’s insightful book celebrates the power of reason, our best hope-indeed our only hope-for dealing with the intractable quagmires of our time.
