Some of these essays are really informative and thought-provoking. The work suffers as a whole, however, because of their increasing disjointedness. I understand that they were apparently assembled to accompany some exhibition and that the lack of coherence between them must to an extent reflect the exhibition's diversity.

Bom livro. Explora as origens da escola e do pensamento das pessoas que a criaram. Mas alguns artigos (o livro é um apanhado de artigos) são mais fracos e desconectados a narrativa.
I had high hopes for this but I got less and less interested as the book progressed. Why did it end on string theory and a discussion of fractals? I mean, really though, why?
