The philosophy of Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908–1961) has influenced the design work of architects as diverse as Steven Holl and Peter Zumthor, as well as informing renowned schools of architectural theory, notably those around Dalibor Vesely at Cambridge, Kenneth Frampton, David Leatherbarrow and Alberto Pérez-Gómez in North America and Juhani Pallasmaa in Finland. Merleau-Ponty suggested that the value of people’s experience of the world gained through their immediate bodily engagement with it remains greater than the value of understanding gleaned through abstract mathematical, scientific or technological systems. This book summarizes what Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy has to offer specifically for architects. It locates architectural thinking in the context of his work, placing it in relation to themes such as space, movement, materiality and creativity, introduces key texts, helps decode difficult terms and provides quick reference for further reading.

The HDTV workshops were established with the aim of aiding definition and fostering the introduction of HDTV. Their fundamental principle is the separation of the standardisation process from the technological development, with the workshops concentrating mainly on the latter. Over the past few years important steps towards actual implementation of HDTV have been made in the major countries. The aim of this workshop was to ask some key people in the HDTV world to express their views about the forms in which an HDTV or Advanced Television Service could be introduced or has actually been started, with the goal of identifying which areas of research are currently in most need of attention. HDTV is now considered to be a strategic piece of applied research in virtually all countries of the world and in many environments there is mounting pressure to start up service and equipment manufacturing. The papers presented in this volume constitute a key contribution to the establishment of this giant step towards a fully fledged information society. Due to the extensive length of the contents, only the number of papers presented per session is listed below.

Lively, illuminating explanation of new scientific term ‘the Anthropocene -- the age of man -- through the stories of people living on its frontline      Scientists are agreed that we are at the start of a new epoch, called the Anthropocene, the first to be defined and determined by only one organim -- man.      We all know our planet is in crisis, and it’'s our fault. But all too often it’'s hard to get a full picture of what’'s really going on, what it all means, from all the facts and stats. So Gaia Vince, news editor of the science journal Nature, decided to travel the world to see for herself what life is really like for people on the frontline of this new age.      Gaia found people doing the most extraordinary things. Take the man who is making artificial glaciers in Nepal, for example, or the one who'’s painting mountains white to attract snowfall; take the electrified reefs of the Maldives; or the man who’'s making islands out of rubbish in the Caribbean. These are ordinary people who are solving severe crises in crazy, ingenious, effective ways. These wonderful stories, combined with the new science that underpins Gaia’'s expertise and research, make for a persuasive, illuminating – and very hopeful – read about what the Anthropocene means for all of us and how we are to survive the coming centuries.

High-definition Television (HDTV) is the target for the next step in television. The timing for its practical implementation and diffusion will be largely dependent on the concurrent evolution of several technical fields and will widely influence different business sectors. This workshop was held in response to a continuing need for a technical, international and interdisciplinary forum to aid the definition of HDTV and foster its introduction. It has been recognised that in this phase of development of HDTV the goals of this forum can be best achieved through cooperation and discussion on the broadest possible basis across the technical communities. Managed by professionals from all over the world, the workshop represented the technical communities and the companies which have a major stake in the development of HDTV. The interdisciplinary nature of the workshop was emphasised by the cooperation of the major professional societies interested in the themes presented. The 66 papers include contributions from leading international experts in the different technology fields on the likely evolutions that can be expected in the coming years.

Although Martin Heidegger is well known for his work on technology, he is not often discussed in the context of science broadly speaking. This volume is the first to showcase diverse perspectives on Heidegger's assessments of the sciences, looking at a number of different ways that Heidegger's writings contribute to questions concerning how we understand the world through science. With particular attention to quantum theory, natural science, technoscience, and a section devoted specifically to investigating what Being and Time has to say about science, the book will be of interest to scholars in a wide range of disciplines and traditions. It closes with consideration of questions about sustainability and ethics raised by Heidegger's engagement with the sciences.
