By Frank Eckardt (auth.)

Mit seinem Buch „City of Quartz“ hat Mike Davis im Jahr 1990 eine extensive Recherche zu aktuellen Themen der Stadtentwicklung anhand von la vorgelegt. Dabei hat er nicht nur quasi die zwei Jahre später stattfindenden Unruhen vorhergesagt, sondern eine weitergehende Theorie der post-liberalen Stadt entwickelt, die die Stadtsoziologie im hohen Maß beunruhigt hat. Ist la erst der Anfang? Davis ist ein kritischer Historiker, der sich aus der Arbeiterbewegung kommend mit Themen wie der amerikanischen Arbeiterbewegung, der Latino-Immigration und den Auswirkungen des Neo-Liberalismus beschäftigt hat. Seinen theoretischen Ansatz einer kritischen Stadtsoziologie hat er darüber hinaus mit Büchern über San Diego, den „Toten Städten“ und über die weltweiten Slums dargelegt.

Vingt lecons sur les beaux-arts by Alain (Émile Chartier)

By Alain (Émile Chartier)

Ce livre comporte une desk des matières dynamique, a été relu et corrigé.
Il est parfaitement mis en web page pour une lecture sur liseuse électronique.
Extrait: J’entreprends une fois de plus d’explorer ce vaste domaine des Beaux-Arts, difficile à comprendre, monde d’énigmes, de formes qui ne disent mot, mais du moins assez facile à décrire. Chacun peut citer un beau monument, une belle symphonie, un beau poème, un beau portrait, un beau dessin, une belle statue. Il n’en faut pas plus, sur quelques exemples aussitôt une sorte de système se dessine, non pas tant par ressemblances que par oppositions et corrélations. Mais avant d’entrer dans cette étude, je dois avertir que deux auteurs sont ici des publications dont on ne peut se passer, je veux parler de l. a. Critique du jugement de Kant, et de ces Cours d’Esthétique de Hegel, traduits par Bénard, et qu’on se procure encore facilement. Kant a conduit irrépro-chablement l’analyse du beau, et celle du elegant, qu’il distingue du beau. Rien ne dispense de lire ces pages, et je les supposerai connues. Je dois seulement avertir que j’essaierai de réintégrer le elegant dans le beau, ce que los angeles contrast même que Kant maintient entre l’un et l’autre semble préparer. Quant à Hegel, merveilleusement pénétrant et fortress presque toujours quand il se donne des exemples, je puis dire que je m’en suis nourri ; mais pourtant je ne prendrai element comme fil conducteur son idée historique. Je los angeles rappelle sommairement. Le plus ancien des arts est l’Art Symbolique, principalement architectural ; l’art moyen, c’est l’Art Classique, principalement sculptural ; l’Art Romantique, qui s’est développé jusqu’à nous
