Art and Physics

Art and Physics Art Interprets The Visible World, Physics Charts Its Unseen Workings Making The Two Realms Seem Completely Opposed But In Art Physics, Leonard Shlain Tracks Their Breakthroughs Side By Side Throughout History To Reveal An Astonishing Correlation Of Visions.From Teh Classical Greek Sculptors To Andy Warhol And Jasper Johns, And From Aristotle To Einstein, Aritsts Have Foreshadowed The Discoveries Of Scientists, Such As When Money And Cezanne Intuited The Coming Upheaval In Physics That Einstein Would Initiate In This Lively And Colorful Narrative, Leonard Shlain Explores How Artistic Breakthroughs Could Have Prefigured The Visionary Insights Of Physicists On So Many Occasions Throughtout History.Provacative And Original, Art Physics Is A Seamless Integration Of The Romance Of Art And The Drama Of Scienceand Exhilarating History Of Ideas. Oh, dear This is probably one of the most infuriatingly frustrating books I have read in quite a long time It could have been so much better And this is the second time, within a short time span, that I feel duty bound to post a not so positive review of a book that has been rated so highly by the overwhelming majority of readers It is a

Revolutionary art and visionary physics attempt to speak about matters that do not yet have words That is why their languages are so poorly understood by people outside their fields Because both speak of what is certainly to come, however, it is incumbent upon us to learn to understand them p.20 Magical thinking is the antithesis of reason.Van Gogh once wrote, A child in the cradle has the infinite in its eye.Every child is born with a desire to re crea
I bought this book in 2008 when it was first published in Vietnam At that time I made a claim that I would knowabout the world and I picked this book Truthfully speaking I couldn t finish even a chapter, mainly because I had no idea about many terms, which were not familiar to me, and I was ignorant of basic knowledge about art and even physics I abandoned it until 2013, I decided to read it again I have been amazed of Shlain s knowledge about art and physics, which are not his special I bought this book in 2008 when it was first published in Vietnam At that time I made a claim that I would knowabout the world and I picked this book Truthfully speaking I couldn t finish even a chapter, mainly because I had no idea about many terms, which were not familiar to me, and I was ignorant of basic knowledge about art and even physics I abandoned it until 2013, I decided to read it again I have been amazed of
A book that looks at my two favorite things When I started reading about physics, all I could think about was its relation to the arts This book takes the history of science and the history of art and shows the similarities in the various art and science movements I love it. y l m t cu n kh hay n u c c ng v i V tr trong l ng b n tay c a Tr nh Xu n Thu n Th k th 5 BC, Democrtitus n i r ng Th gi i c t o ra b i nh ng nguy n t , v nh ng kho ng tr ng L p lu n t ng t c ng c a ra b i nh ng nh v t l , r ng v tr c c u th nh b i nh ng h t v ph n h t Ph t gi o c ng c g n v y, khi cho r ng v tr bao g m t t c s c , v c ng kh ng bao g m g c kh ng C c gi o c ng ph n th gi i ra l m hai lo i Thi n v c, hay Thi n ng v a n y l m t cu n kh hay n u c c ng v i V tr trong l ng b n tay c a Tr nh Xu n Thu n Th k th 5 BC, Democrtitus n i r ng Th gi i c t o ra b i nh ng nguy n t , v nh ng kho ng tr ng L p lu n t ng t c ng c a ra b i nh ng nh v t l , r ng v tr c c u th nh b i nh ng h t v ph n h t Ph t gi o c ng c g n v y, khi c
I have lent this book out many times and I never seem to get it back I purchased another copy not too long ago as I intend to give it another read since it s been so long since I ve read it maybe 20 years or so I was naturally attracted to the title as I love reading about both art and physics So, seeing them together in one book sounded like too much fun I have read another one of this author s books titl
ThesisYears ago I heard neurosurgeon Leonard Shlain read from Art Physics Parallel Visions in Space, Time Light at the Aspen Institute in a symposium called, Unified Field Summit Art, Science, and Spirituality My poetry professor had recently won a big prize for her book, The Dream of the Unified Field I didn t yet know about the unified field theory in physics.We spontaneously drove the four hours to
Both fascinating and infuriating Shlain, probably because of his outsider status to both of the fields he is considering, manages to make remarkably thought provoking comparisons between the world of art and physics Some struck while reading as brilliant For example, the stable inertial frame so important for classical mechanics is compared to the transition to a dominant mode in classical music And this in turn is compared to the development of perspective in art Great stuff His writing Both fascinating and infuriating Shlain, probably because of his outsider status to both of the fields he is considering, manages to make remarkably thought provoking comparisons between the world of art and physics Some struck while reading as brilliant For example
