Ideas que han cambiado el mundo

A lo largo de los angeles historia, algunos libros han cambiado el mundo. Han transformado l. a. manera en que nos vemos a nosotros mismos y a los demás. Han inspirado el debate, l. a. discordia, los angeles guerra y l. a. revolución. Han iluminado, indignado, provocado y consolado. Han enriquecido vidas, y también las han destruido.

Taurus publica las obras de los grandes pensadores, pioneros, radicales y visionarios cuyas principles sacudieron los angeles civilización y nos impulsaron a ser quienes somos.

John Ruskin echó abajo las rules sobre arte y arquitectura dominantes en l. a. sociedad victoriana. Para él, en las obras arquitectónicas, lejos del ánimo de lucro, debe primar el afán por comunicar verdades humanas eternas y transmitir los angeles historia viva de los angeles sociedad que las produjo.

In Baroque Science, Ofer Gal and Raz Chen-Morris current a appreciably new viewpoint at the medical revolution of the 17th century. rather than celebrating the triumph of cause and rationality, they research the paradoxes and anxieties that stemmed from the recent technology and the highbrow compromises that formed it and enabled its remarkable success.
Gal and Chen-Morris exhibit how the protagonists of the hot mathematical typical philosophy grasped on the very some distance and intensely small by way of entrusting remark to the mediation of synthetic tools, and the way they justified this mediation by way of naturalizing and denigrating the human senses. They convey how the physical-mathematical ordering of heavens and earth demanded vague and spurious mathematical strategies, exchanging the divine harmonies of the overdue Renaissance with an assemblage of remoted, contingent legislation and approximated constants.  ultimately, they exhibit how the recent savants, compelled to contend that cause is hopelessly estranged from its surrounding global and that nature is irreducibly complicated, became to the passions to supply another, naturalized starting place for his or her epistemology and ethics.
implementing order within the face of threatening chaos, blurring the limits of the typical and the bogus, and mobilizing the passions within the provider of aim wisdom, the recent technological know-how, Gal and Chen-Morris show, is a Baroque phenomenon: deeply entrenched in and crucially formative of the tradition of its time.
