"Not many living artists would be sufficiently brave or inspired to attempt reflecting in art what Borges constructs in words. But the detailed, evocative etchings by Erik Desmazieres provide a perfect counterpoint to the visionary prose. Like Borges, Desmazieres has created his own universe, his own definition of the meaning, topography and geography of the Library of Babel. Printed together, with the etchings reproduced in fine-line duotone, text and art unite to present an artist's book that belongs in the circle of Borges's sacrosanct Crimson Hexagon - "books smaller than natural books, books omnipotent, illustrated, and magical.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Tar for Mortar

TAR FOR MORTAR offers an in-depth exploration of one of literature's greatest tricksters, Jorge Luis Borges. His short story "The Library of Babel" is a signature examplar of this playfulness, though not merely for the inverted world it imagines, where a library thought to contain all possible permutations of all letters and words and books is plumbed by pious librarians looking for divinely pre-fabricated truths. One must grapple as well with the irony of Borges's narration, which undermines at every turn its narrator's claims of the library's universality, including the very possibility of exhausting meaning through combinatory processing. Borges directed readers to his non-fiction to discover the true author of the idea of the universal library. But his supposedly historical essays are notoriously riddled with false references and self-contradictions. Whether in truth or in fiction, Borges never reaches a stable conclusion about the atomic premises of the universal library - is it possible to find a character set capable of expressing all possible meaning, or do these letters, like his stories and essays, divide from themselves in a restless incompletion? While many readers of Borges see him as presaging our digital technologies, they often give too much credit to our
Im Turm

Der Turm von Babel ist das gewaltigste Bauwerk des Seidenen Zeitalters: er ragt so hoch in die Wolken hinein, dass niemand weiß, wo er endet; in seinem Inneren gibt es ganze Königreiche und unzählige Labyrinthe voller geheimnisvoller Kreaturen und tödlicher Gefahren. Eigentlich wollte der furchtsame Thomas Senlin nur einen kurzen Blick auf dieses Weltwunder werfen und dann weiterreisen. »Falls wir uns in der Menschenmenge verlieren, treffen wir uns auf der Spitze des Turmes wieder«, sagt seine frisch angetraute Frau Marya noch kokett zu ihm, kurz darauf ist sie tatsächlich spurlos verschwunden. Senlin bleibt keine Wahl: Er muss rein in den Turm und rauf auf die Spitze, wenn er seine Frau wiederfinden will. Das Abenteuer beginnt ...

Jorge Luis Borges in “The Library of Babel” imagines a hellish archive of books — a macrocosmic columbarium, whose infinite chambers provide an exhaustive repository for all the permutations of the alphabet. Inside this endless library, nonsensical texts so drastically outnumber any intelligible books that a coherent phrase must seem tantamount to a wondrous mishap. Poets within such a prisonhouse can no longer contribute anything innovative to literature, because literature itself has already anticipated and inventoried in advance all the anagrammatic combinations of every text. The librarian who narrates the story notes that, on a shelf in his hexagon, there exists a volume entitled THE COMBED THUNDERCLAP.Christian Bök has rediscovered this volume in The Library of Babel (curated by Jonathan Basile). THE COMBED THUNDERCLAP is published to the specifications described by Borges, who imagines a book of 410 pages, with 40 lines of text per page and with 80 characters of text per line. Bök has typeset the book in Panoptica (a font designed by Nick Shinn, who has created a set of monospaced characters, according to the “prisoner’s constraint,” meaning that none of the letters have either ascenders or descenders). The hardcover is limited to an edition of 25

The Origin of Wealth
Language: en
Pages: 527
Authors: Eric D. Beinhocker
Categories: Business & Economics
Type: BOOK - Published: 2006 - Publisher: Harvard Business Press
Beinhocker has written this work in order to introduce a broad audience to what he believes is a revolutionary new paradigm in economics and its implications for our understanding of the creation of wealth. He describes how the growing field of complexity theory allows for evolutionary understanding of wealth creation, in which business designs co-evolve with the evolution of technologies and organizational innovations. In addition to giving his audience a tour of this field of complexity economics, he discusses its implications for real-world issues of business.
