The Other Side tells of a dream kingdom which becomes a nightmare, of a journey to Pearl, a mysterious city created deep in Asia, which is also a journey to the depths of the subconcious, or as Kubin himself called it, 'a sort of Baedeker for those lands which are half known to us'. Written in 1908, and more or less half way between Meyrink and Kafka, it was greeted with wild enthusiasm by the artists and writers of the Expressionist generation. ' Expressionist illustrator Kubin wrote this fascinating curio, his only literary work in 1908. A town named Pearl, assembled and presided over by the aptly named Patera, is the setting for his hallucinatory vision of a society founded on instinct over reason. Culminating apocalyptically - plagues of insects, mountains of corpses and orgies in the street - it is worth reading for its dizzying surrealism alone. Though ostensibly a gothic macabre fantasy, it is tempting to read The Other Side as a satire on the reactionary, idealist utopianism evident in German thought in the early twentieth century, highly prescient in its gloom, given later developments. The language often suggests Nietsche. The inevitable collapse of Patera's creation is lent added horror by hindsight. Kubin's depiction of absurd bureaucracy is strongly reminiscent of Kafka's The Trial, and his flawed utopia, situated next to a settlement of supposed savages, brings to mind Huxley's Brave New World; it precedes both novels, and this superb new translation could demonstrate its influence on subsequent modern literature.' Kieron Pim in Time Out It will appeal to fans of Mervyn Peake and readers who like the darkly decadent, the fantastic and the grotesque in their reading.

Riciclo, riuso e riattivazione sono le parole chiave della metamorfosi circolare che stiamo attraversando e che si traducono sempre più spesso in progetti ecologici, intelligenti e creativi per le città, le infrastrutture e i paesaggi. Dagli albori di un Neo-antropocene che tenda a ridurre la sua impronta ecologica e ad incrementare l&'intelligenza collettiva della noosfera, emergono le visioni e i paradigmi di un Re-cyclical Urbanism, una urbanistica re-ciclica non dissipativa ma generativa, di cui il libro indaga pratiche già in atto per individuare protocolli di pianificazione e per forgiare dispositivi progettuali capaci di agire nella società circolare. Il volume contiene le ricerche e le sperimentazioni progettuali condotte a Palermo, sui Monti Sicani e a Roma applicando i paradigmi del riciclo alla rigenerazione di insediamenti urbani e rurali in contrazione o in transizione. Le proposte metodologiche e le sperimentazioni lavorano sui lacerti urbani, sugli scarti prodotti dalla dismissione funzionale e sui rottami dello sviluppo attraverso processi/progetti di riciclo incrementali e adattivi - il Cityforming - che attivino un metabolismo capace di generare nuovi cicli di vita autosufficienti per i territori urbani e rurali in una rinnovata alleanza tra uomo e natura. Il Re-cyclical Urbanism agisce a partire dalla riscrittura di &"righe di codice&" dismesse (le funzioni), dalla riattivazione di &"banchi di memoria&" non utilizzati (le aree) e dal recupero di &"routine&" urbane ancora efficienti (le infrastrutture) proponendosi come un nuovo sistema operativo dello sviluppo sostenibile.

Originally published in 1980, this book examines the major issues in the philosophy of social science, paying specific attention to cross-cultural understanding, humanism versus scientism, individualism versus collectivism, and the shaping of theory by evaluative commitment. Arguing for a cross-cultural conception of human beings, the authors defend humanism and individualism, and reject the notion that social inquiry is necessarily vitiated by an adherence to values.
