Book by Robbin Mr Tony


"Robbin's book is a provocative, illuminating adventure ... offering novel insights into both math and art history."-Ivars Peterson, Science News -- Ivars Peterson * Science News * "A fascinating flythrough of ... intellectually rigorous climes . . . . The panorama he sketches in Shadows of Reality is rich and fascinating."-Science * Science * "So what is this book? It is a combination of art, history of art, science and mathematics and their respective histories; it is philosophy and it is enlightening."-Scott Carter, University of South Alabama -- Scott Carter "Shadows of Reality is a high-energy ride through hyperspace. Robbin exercises his preference in favor of understanding higher dimensional spaces via projection and projective geometry. His tour starts at the beginning of the twentieth century with special relativity and ideas of four-space and moves on to the advent of cubism, the emergence of quantum theory, quasi-crystals, the spin network and twistor theories of Roger Penrose, modern views of quantum non-locality, and the geometry and topology of higher category theory."-Louis H. Kauffman, author of Knots and Physics -- Louis H. Kauffman "Robbin's discussion of Picasso's summer 1910 painting, Seated Woman with a Book, is exciting and brand new."-Jan Schall, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art -- Jan Schall "Robbin's insights may well be among those that lead our scientific, artistic, and general society to new understandings of our world."-Charles H. Scheim, Hartwick College -- Charles H. Scheim

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
