Aosta, Forte di Bard, April 4 - September 2, 2007. English Text. Cinisello Balsamo, 2007; paperback, pp. 303, 80 b/w ill., 112 col ill., cm 21x22. According to Greek mythology, Atlas was one of the giants who battled against the gods of Olympus. Zeus condemned the defeated Atlas to bear the sky on his shoulders and rotate it eternally from east to west, acting as a lever on the Earth, which gave him sure footing because it was immobile. This belief endured for thousands of years before Copernicus questioned it. The Aristotelian-Ptolemaic conception is the starting point for the exhibition In cima alle stelle, which moves on to probe the fundamental conquests of knowledge that have helped shape our modern vision of the cosmos, culminating with Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Artists and cultures of all eras have been fascinated by the mysteries of the universe and they have been intrigued by scientists' answers about the origin of human history. Boasting a rich array of illustrations, essays and entries that reflect the work of numerous experts, this book - like the exhibition - takes a systematic and chronological look at the first editions of scientific texts, astronomical instruments and original documents, juxtaposing them with the works of art that have been inspired by the emotion of the various conceptions of the cosmos, from prehistory to our own era, and from the stelae of Saint-Martin de Corleans to installations by contemporary artists, specially commissioned for the historical spaces of Forte di Bard.There is undeniably a growing divide between the conquests of astronomical science and their effective perception by society, although many scientific theories have now been applied to common technologies. Nevertheless, the four interactive multimedia installations inspired by the exactitude of science and created by Studio Azzurro for this exhibition offer the opportunity for uncommon contact with phenomena that are not directly accessible in everyday life: the finiteness of the speed of light, the existence of space-time, its curvature on a local level and its expansion on a universal one.

1. Auflage Lang, Peter Frankfurt, 2009. gebunden Interkulturelle Philosophie; Kulturelle Differenzen; Kulturelle Eigenart; Universalismus; Relativismus; Interkulturelle Philosophie[DNB]; Aufsatzsammlung[DNB] This book is an anthology that focuses on topics of Intercultural Philosophy. Its main goal is to offer new impulses and important contributions to all discourses, discussions and researches on (other) cultures. The importance of Intercultural Philosophy seems to be obvious in a globalized world. Eleven authors participated in such a common research on cultural differences and peculiarities. Together they discuss four topics: concepts of a general approach of Intercultural Philosophy, the relationship of universalism and cultural differences, different methods, and certain cultural peculiarities. The contributions express that Intercultural Philosophy is not just a single question of philosophy. Instead it concerns philosophy in general, its possibilities, borders and main tasks.
