Geometry and Rhetoric: Thinking about Thinking in Pictures

Geometry and Rhetoric: Thinking about Thinking in Pictures Thinking about thinking is tricky business. Pitfalls include a tendency to confuse our metaphors with the act itself, difficulties attendant to discredited notions of introspection as a source of evidence and the twin unreasonablenesses of reductive scientists and mystical humanists. Engaging geometry and rhetoric in a common frame presents the opportunity, especially in the context of architecture, to consider discourse and image in ways that are mutually reinforcing. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nexus Network Journal Springer Journals

Abstract

Thinking about thinking is tricky business. Pitfalls include a tendency to confuse our metaphors with the act itself, difficulties attendant to discredited notions of introspection as a source of evidence and the twin unreasonablenesses of reductive scientists and mystical humanists. Engaging geometry and rhetoric in a common frame presents the opportunity, especially in the context of architecture, to consider discourse and image in ways that are mutually reinforcing.
