From the Back Cover: First published in 1910 and updated in 1922--this is a reproduction of that second edition--this is architect and theosophist Claude Bragdon's exploration of art as an "expression of the cosmic life." And what a glorious exploration is it. The essay titles hint at the lyricism of Bragdon's prose:
* "The Art of Architecture" * "Unity and Polarity" * "Changeless Change" * "The Bodily Temple" * "Latent Geometry" * "The Arithmetic of Beauty" * "Frozen Music"
Accompanied by lovely and informative line drawings, these essays constitute a master class in the philosophy of art, beauty, science, and the intersection of all three.
Other works by Bragdon available from Cosimo Classics: More Lives Than One, Architecture and Democracy, Episodes from An Unwritten History, and A Primer of Higher Space (The Fourth Dimension).
