This is a book which provides effortless reading, even by people without training in either discipline. I find its content less provocative than announced. Some of the author's positions on art could be challened i.e. Leonardo as a forerunner for Kandinsky, Malevitch and Mondrian who created their art several hundred years later. But the book is well structured and can certainly inspire many readers. I understand that it was the case of Bülent Atalay and it led to his book "Math and the Mona Lisa" which I found somehow more substantial.
In any event, the unifying links between art, physics, astronomy, mathematics and other sciences reveals itself quite forthcoming and popular. It is surprising that the present scope and interest to unify seemingly unrelated fields, corresponds to an overall trend everywhere. When such ideas were first published by Nelson Goodman between 1975 and 1977 (Ways of Worldmaking) his publications were noticed only by an infinite small number of people. According to him, the ultimate product of science (contrary to the arts) is a literal theory, verbal or mathermatical; nevertheless - science and art proceed in the same fashion in research and construction. But it is astonishing, that only some 39 years later, one experiences an avalanche of publications on the same subject.

Amazing correlations 9 janvier 2012

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A different and thought provoking book relating artists insights to discoveries in physics.Fascinating reading.I definitely recommend this book. I find I have to read it first thing in the morning when I am able to concentrate. It is not for a relaxed read!

Interesting Connections 6 mai 2008
Par Dr. Joan E. Aitken - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book seeks to provide connections about art and science. I would have liked more visual illustrations, but anyone who seeks to understand the patterns of this world will find the ideas interesting.

Academic disciplines have become segregated in our individual disciplines, so this kind of synthesis is unique.

I bought this book because it was recommended by one of my graduate students. The book was a gift for an engineer who enjoys art and design.

Art & Physics:Parallel Visions in Space, Time, and Light 14 juin 2007
Par Karen Reisdorf - Publié sur

I thought this was a wonderful book. Tying the evolution of art to the evolution of thinking and science gave me a more holistic way to look at art. From the ancient Greeks through the Dark and Middle Ages, the Impressionists, and into modern times the parallels of physics to art are simply amazing. Perfect for us "left-brained" types.

Shallow and confused 31 décembre 2007
Par Fredo Durand - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Leonard Shlain is a surgeon, not an art historian neither a physicist. His culture is impressively broad, but unfortunately shallow. His main thesis in this book is that basically all scientific discoveries were anticipated by artists. I find the interwoven relationship between art and science absolutely fascinating, but this book is not a reference that I would recommand on the topic.

The main problem is that this book abuses of the juxtaposition of unrelated facts, and presents them with such virtuosity that a magical causality seem to appear. Shlain presents ancient thoughts with the enlightenment of modern frameworks, subtly rewriting them, emphasizing concept and translating them such that they seem to fit with forthcoming theories.

This kind of pitfall has been described by Kuhn (the structure of scientific revolution). For example, if Newtonian mechanics can be expressed in the framework of relativity, relativity is NOT and extension of Newtonian physics, there is a fundamental revolution between them. It is only because Newtonian physics has been rewritten that it becomes more compatible with Einstein's new insights.

Moreover, Shlain's understanding of relativity is weak at best. For example, he often makes the confusion between the effect of the finite speed of light (which can be expressed in a Newtonian context) and relativity.

I was all the more disappointed that some of the issues are actually relevant and fascinating: relativity, non Euclidean, surrealism and cubism for example do share a common revolution of the notion of space (and thus of the place of humans in the world). Unfortunately, Shlain's caricatural statements are irrelevant: Manet had absolutely no idea of the concepts involved in relativity, and Einstein himself pointed out that cubism had nothing to deal with relativity (as opposed to Picasso's claims).

If you want a good introduction to art history, read Gombrich, if you want to learn about physics in a broad context, read Zajong (Catching the light).

Schlain's vast insight 7 novembre 2009
Par David Knapp - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a musician and life long educator in a school of the arts here in Pittsburgh, I am inspired by Mr. Schlain's vast insight into the relationship of creativity, science, and the human spirit. I believe this work should be a fundamental guide for educators who believe in the power of art as it historically has influenced culture and science. BRAVO Mr. Schlain!
