Up until now, in discussing the HfG, there has been a dearth of publications that aim at representing the hard facts of its history." "One of the simplest notions taught at the HfG is the idea that the result of a project depends on the circumstances under which it was carried out. If external conditions are altered, the output obtained is different. If we want to have a grasp of the HfG's uniqueness, we need information about its external conditions. That is why the present publication focuses on the framework within which the HfG operated. The facts gathered here are not meant to replace opinions but to make it possible to form opinions."--BOOK JACKET." ;
