Architecture as Metaphor: Language, Number, Money (Writing Architecture) by Kojin Karatani
English | Oct 5, 1995 | ISBN: 0262611139 | 246 Pages | PDF | 17 MB
Kojin Karatani, Japan's leading literary critic, is perhaps best known for his imaginative readings of Shakespeare, Soseki, Marx, Wittgenstein, and most recently Kant. His works, of which Origins of Modern Japanese Literature is the only one previously translated into English, are the generic equivalent to what in America is called "theory." Karatani's writings are important not only for the insights they offer on the various topics under discussion, but also as an example of a distinctly non-Western critical intervention.
