This quantity offers a set of unique papers on the intersection of philosophy, the background of technological know-how, cultural and theatrical stories. in accordance with a sequence of case experiences at the seventeenth century, it contributes to an realizing of the position performed through tools on the interface of technological know-how and artwork. The papers pursue the speculation that the improvement and development of tools make a significant contribution to the opening of new fields of data, the advance of latest cultural practices, but additionally to the delineation of specific genres, tools, and disciplines. this attitude leads the authors to mirror anew on what actually defines an device and to increase a sequence of simple inquiries to be certain what an tool is - which activities does the software contain? which activities does the device make attainable? - whilst do the items of exam themselves develop into tools? what abilities are required to take advantage of an device, which talents does it produce? With its mix of recent theoretical versions and old case reviews, its certain demonstration of the mutual impression of artwork and technological know-how with the software because the element of intersection, this quantity enters new territory. it truly is of serious price for all these attracted to the historical past of our conception of tools. in addition to the editors, the authors of the papers are: Jörg Jochen Berns, Olaf Breidbach, Georges Didi-Huberman, Peter Galison, Sybille Krämer, Dieter Mersch, Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Wilhelm Schmidt-Biggemann, and Otto Sibum.

Sample text

In his account of the life of the artist, Antonio Manetti writes about two panels made between 1418 and 1425, mounted in the baptistery in Florence, which presented an almost perfect play of illusion. One could contemplate this through a hole drilled in a canvas screen that captured the gaze, a trompe-l’œil effect being achieved thanks to a sophisticated system of mirrors. This arrangement seems a perfect example of the early connection between the eye, mathematics and mechanics: for in order to enable the exact perception of pictures a fixed point of view had to be chosen so that the vanishing point, visual axis and the standpoint of the viewer related to each other.

On the other hand, it helped to visualize the three-dimensional structure of proteins as the translation products and functional correlates of nucleic acids.

The Electron Microscope Twentieth-century electron microscopy has once more radicalized the process of microscopic specimen preparation already described.

Representation and Distortion 21 Tetraktys. ”3 Every formal system or calculation creates its own limits where it breaks down. Such limits within a system mostly take aporetic forms inasmuch as they are demonstrable but cannot be solved or integrated into the system. This holds true for the Tetraktys because, in accordance with its own structure and entitlement, it allowed the creation of quantities that were not plausible within its own terms of reference. An analogous phenomenon can be seen in the mathematical thinking of the early modern era, especially in the predominant projection geometry.
