  • Epistemic Cultures - How the Sciences Make Knowledge

  • Karin Knorr Cetina , Harvard University Press , 1999

Comtemporary western societies are becoming "knowledge societies," that run on expert processes and expert systems epitomised by science and structured into all areas of social life. By looking at epistemic cultures in two sample cases, this book addresses pressing questions about how such expert systems and processes work, what principles inform their cognitive and procedural orientations and whether their organisation, structures and operations can be extended to other forms of social order

  • Mantegna and Bellini: A Renaissance Family

  • Caroline Campbell, Dagmar Korbacher, Neville Rowley, Sarah Vowles, Andrea De Marchi , Yale University Press , 2018

An innovative study of the relationship between Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini, two masters of the Italian Renaissance Andrea Mantegna (c. 1431-1506) and Giovanni Bellini (active c. 1459; died 1516) each produced groundbreaking paintings, marked by pictorial and technical innovations, that are among the masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. Exploring the fruitful dynamic between Mantegna's inventive compositional approach and interest in classical antiquity and Bellini's passion for landscape painting, this fascinating volume examines how these two artists, who were also brothers-in-law, influenced and responded to each other's work. Full of new insights and captivating juxtapositions-including comparisons of each of the artist's depictions of the Agony in the Garden and the Presentation to the Temple-this study reveals that neither Mantegna's nor Bellini's achievements can be fully understood in isolation and that their continuous creative exchanges shaped the work of both.

Peter and Laust reach Dannevirke where they are dismayed to find the historic defences almost useless, and are further disheartened to learn that their new captain is none other than Didrich. General De Meza decides, against the will of the powers-that-be in Copenhagen, to withdraw to Dybbol.
