Présentation de l'éditeur

What do walking, weaving, observing, storytelling, singing, drawing and writing have in common?

The answer is that they all proceed along lines. In this extraordinary book Tim Ingold imagines a world in which everyone and everything consists of interwoven or interconnected lines and lays the foundations for a completely new discipline: the anthropological archaeology of the line.

Ingold’s argument leads us through the music of Ancient Greece and contemporary Japan, Siberian labyrinths and Roman roads, Chinese calligraphy and the printed alphabet, weaving a path between antiquity and the present.

Setting out from a puzzle about the relation between speech and song, Ingold considers how two kinds of line – threads and traces – can turn into one another as surfaces form or dissolve. He reveals how our perception of lines has changed over time, with modernity converting to point-to-point connectors before becoming straight, only to be ruptured and fragmented by the postmodern world.

Drawing on a multitude of disciplines including archaeology, classical studies, art history, linguistics, psychology, musicology, philosophy and many others, and including more than seventy illustrations, this book takes us on an exhilarating intellectual journey that will change the way we look at the world and how we go about in it.

What kind of connections! 21 septembre 2008
Par Jake Keenan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A refreshingly different way to view the history and the tapestry of the world especially some transitional features to modernity. Copious lines of argument carry a bold thesis that is wonderfully and diversely illustrated. The contrast is on the change in the quality of lines and how the wayfarer's threading through the world is being replaced by transport across it, how storytelling is being replaced by assemblies of plot elements, how life as lived pathways is being superseded by jumping between points on cognitive maps. Evolution too is brought under the lines-viewpoint in a contrast between life's many continuities and the discontinuity of Darwinian descent lines connecting isolated gene sets. The point of inquiry begins on how song and language became separated which passes through a history of writing's traces and music's scoring. Tim Ingold's intellectual pluck keeps getting better. His subtle teasing apart of our lines enriches the current fascination with networks. Reads easily with all the rich, above-praised illustrations and with many wide-ranging examples that only a few times becomes mired in a few too many cross-cultural examples. But then his challenge comes to the back of my mind to pay attention to the voyager when temptation is to too quickly connect the dots. Bravo. And thank you.

Exciting meshwork of ideas 6 août 2010
Par Philippe Vandenbroeck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In `Lines' Tim Ingold retraces the contours of a momentous techno-cultural evolution by investigating the status and role of an element that is so pervasive in our lifeworld that it becomes invisible: lines and surfaces. This evolution can be described as a movement from a topian, circuitous `line of wayfaring' to the utopian, straight line of modernity to the dystopian, fragmented line of postmodernity (quoting K. Olwig). From this central premise, Ingold spins an argument that goes in different directions, connecting practices as diverse as writing, reading, singing, drawing, weaving, building, dwelling, mapping and travelling. His anthropological lens draws in examples from cultures and ethnicities around the world. Ingold observes, hypotheses, connects. Although it is clear that the author deplores our dwindling capacity for establishing life-giving connections with places that give us sustenance - in favour of a more opportunistic, functional way of being in the world - he is careful not too take a too strong position. The purpose of the argument is not make a point, but to establish a contingent, evolving meshwork of ideas. Ingold: "Lines are open-ended, and it is this open-endedness - of lives, relationships, histories, and processes of thought - that I wanted to celebrate." Even so, Ingold's way of building an argument is careful, sober and scholarly. A more spiritual side to the discussion shines through in his accessible and humane style of writing. In the themes and concepts surveyed, particularly also in the pivotal role assigned to technology (the printing press, the typewriter, the computer), Ingold's `Lines' connects to the (arguably more polemic) work of media theorist Vilem Flusser. There are also obvious connections to the work of Deleuze and De Landa. This is a book that by its very nature could connect to a wide range of interdisciplinary research efforts. It is also recommended to a more casual reader in search of unusual and inspiring ideas.

Ingold's Line of Flight Continues; Follow It! 30 août 2012
Par Nathan Daley, MD, MPH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Lines" is the middle collection of essays between "The Perception of the Environment" and "Being Alive." The three volumes are simply footprints along Ingold's continuously in process exploration of alternate perspectives and perceptions to understanding what it is to be human-in-the-world. Personally, I enjoyed "Being Alive" and "Perceptions of the Environment" a bit more than "Lines" but the content of each one runs right through the others as well. I recommend reading all three! Tim Ingold is severely overlooked despite the brilliance and importance of his work. You are fortunate to have discovered this book, now buy it and read it!

find a way through dotted lines 15 décembre 2014
Par Mikio Miyaki - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Tim Ingold casts doubts about the contemporary way of life, which sets a goal in a straightforward manner. “Lines” creates a stir in post modern society, where people take the linearity as a logical result of development. The straight line has emerged as a virtual icon of modernity, intellectuality, rationality and science. He reasons the importance of wayfaring. Wayfarers are successful inhabitants, Ingold says, and have left various lines as loci in attaining civilization. Life is lived along lines, not at points. Retracing the lines of past lives, we can find our own way to proceed along. Ecology is the study of the life of lines.

He begins a comparative anthropologic study of lines by examining how we have come to distinguish between speech and song. In the time there was no written words, people knew the sonority of every word. In ancient Japan, people believed in the miraculous power of language, and found joy in basking the chanting of Buddhist hymns. What did creators of written language want to deliver to their descendants? With development of notation, music has become wordless while language has been silenced. Language, music and notation is most thrilling chapter, makes me ponder over.

Ingold then takes up traces, threads and surfaces to comprehend thorough understandings of lines. In the course of history, line, of which continuous movement has been shown gradually, has been fragmented into a succession of points or dots. Invention of printing accounts for this current well. We might do better, Ingold asserts, to revert from this paradigm of assembly to understand how people inhabit the environment in which they dwell.

The same logic of separating language from music has driven the contemporary separation of writing from drawing, now placed on opposite sides of modern dichotomy between technology and art. Straightness has come to epitomize rational thought and disputation, values of civility, and moral rectitude. However, lines once straight has become fragmented, our task is to find a way once more through the crack. Ingold claims the key to solve this lies in the line of the wayfaring. He closes consideration with celebrating open-endedness of lines - lives, relations, histories and processes of thought.

If supremacy is your style 8 avril 2014
Par Chicago Book Dispatch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Superficial and ignorant writing oblivious to materials or technical practice of any methods described in the writing. Very bad writing.
