5.0 étoiles sur 5 What kind of connections! 21 septembre 2008
Par Jake Keenan - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
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across it, how storytelling is being replaced by assemblies of plot elements, how life as lived pathways is being superseded by jumping between points on cognitive maps.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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exciting meshwork of ideas 6 août 2010
Par Philippe Vandenbroeck - Publié sur
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ingold's Line of Flight Continues; Follow It! 30 août 2012
Par Nathan Daley, MD, MPH - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
"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!
1.0 étoiles sur 5 If supremacy is your style 8 avril 2014
Par Chicago Book Dispatch - Publié sur
Superficial and ignorant writing oblivious to materials or technical practice of any methods described in the writing. Very bad writing.
