Behind the superficial obscurity of what fragments we have of Heraclitus' thought, Professor Kahn claims that it is possible to detect a systematic view of human existence, a theory of language which sees ambiguity as a device for the expression of multiple meaning, and a vision of human life and death within the larger order of nature. The fragments are presented here in a readable order; translation and commentary aim to make accessible the power and originality of a systematic thinker and a great master of artistic prose. The commentary locates Heraclitus within the tradition of early Greek thought, but stresses the importance of his ideas for topical theories of language, literature and philosophy.

This book questions flexibility as a design approach by providing a longitudinal analysis of an innovative architectural experiment called the School Construction Systems Development (SCSD) project. The SCSD pioneered the use of performance specifications to create an open, prefabricated, and integrated system of building components that provided four modes of flexibility. Educational facilities throughout California used the SCSD system and it spawned a variety of similar projects throughout North America. This book traces the development and subsequent use of the system over 50 years through archival research, personal observations, re-photography, re-surveying, plan evaluations, interviews, and an advertisement analysis. These new findings provide useful insights for architects, educators, historic preservationists, and others about the affordances of spatial flexibility, the difficulties associated with technological transfer, the impact of unstable market conditions, the importance of user input during the planning process, and the need for long-term social relations to sustain architectural experiments.

Wie lässt sich die Verbindung zwischen Leiblichkeit und der Konstitution kultureller Bedeutungen denken? Die Beiträge des Bandes reichen von begrifflichen Überlegungen zu den Körpern über die Einbeziehung der Psychosomatik zu jenen Körperpraktiken, welche die akademische Praxis selbst mitbestimmen. Der Vielfalt von Blickwinkeln gemeinsam ist die Aufmerksamkeit für den Körper als Ausgangspunkt und sinnstiftendes Medium wissenschaftlichen Denkens, Vortragens und Schreibens. Künstlerische Formen wie die Lecture-Performance geraten ebenso in den Blick wie die Frage, ob sich die Philosophie in der Perspektive der Korporalen Performanz selbst als eine Form leiblicher Kreativität enthüllt.
