Crystal and Dragon: The Cosmic Two-Stepby David Wade
David Wade takes the reader on a journey through the world views of successive ages: from Platos philosophy of the Ideal Form, & the ancient Chinese philosophy of change, through to the modern scientific view of structure & indeterminacy as embodied in the laws of science. He also shows how these perceptions about the nature of the universe inform the art of their times: the form & fluidity of Primitive art, the crystalline order of Islamic patterns, & the subtlety & vitality of Chinese landscapes & calligraphy. Includes numerous drawings of patterns from various cultures.
