Summary:
"John T. Waisanen looks to particular skills we might be losing (and might have for some time been losing): drawing in particular; and to the "art" of integrating complex vision, thought and practice, what he calls design - or geometrical thinking. This points to the importance of the arts as a physical practice and to the cultivation of complex vision and thought gained in and through an education where geometry  Read more...

Abstract:

"John T. Waisanen looks to particular skills we might be losing (and might have for some time been losing): drawing in particular; and to the "art" of integrating complex vision, thought and practice, what he calls design - or geometrical thinking. This points to the importance of the arts as a physical practice and to the cultivation of complex vision and thought gained in and through an education where geometry and literature are equally important, where physical intelligence (not just dexterity) and philosophical intelligence are equally important."--Jacket.
