"The Perverse Library is the latest poetic bookwork from scholar, critic, and iam co-editor Craig Dworkin. The book comprises of a bibliography of Dworkin's book shelves at home, a supplementary bibliography of absent and imagined books, and an accompanying essay arguing that libraries are in fact defined not by what they contain, but by what books they exclude or fail to include. The essay also investigates the histories of libraries, makes a theoretical argument about the relation of canons to architectural space, and explores the psychology of collecting--including the pathology of bibliomania"--Publisher's website, viewed on October 8, 2014

This research focuses on the representation of the city in France at the end ofthe Old Regime, paying a particular attention to the contribution of architectural theory. The starting point is the analysis of a heterogeneous literature, which points out the need for a new observation ofthe urban space together with the possibility of a radical and material change. This intellectual reflection is observed from numerous reform projects as well as from the imagination of an ideal city drawn by the utopic literature; these texts are proposed in the wake of the link between reform and utopia established by Franco Venturi and Bronislaw Baczko. However, the core of this research is the representation of the city developed by the architectural theory and especially by the thought of two artists, Étienne-Louis Boullée (1728-1799) and Claude-Nicolas Ledoux (1736-1806). Based on some philosophical, social and cultural enlightenment ideas, both of them elaborate an image of the city whose transformation can give birth to a new society. In their thought, architecture becomes a real social arl, essential to a new social design and to human emancipation. Their theory and their architectural planning have a double purpose : to receive the man in spaces designed in the light of important functionalistic guideline characteristics of the second half of the 18th Century, and to reform humanity deeply, leading it up to a new step of civilisation
