About this product
- DescriptionIn his groundbreaking study, Art, Politics and Development, Philipp Lepenies contributes to the ongoing controversy about why the track record of development aid is so dismal. He asserts that development aid policies are grounded in a specific way of literally looking at the world. This worldview is the result of a mental conditioning that began with the invention of linear perspective in Renaissance art. It t only triggered the emergence of modern science and brought forth our Western tion of progress, but ultimately, development as well. Art, Politics, and Development examines this process by pulling from a range of disciplines, including art history, philosophy, literature, and social science. Lepenies t only explains the shortcomings of modern aid in a vel fashion, he also proposes how aid could be done differently. In the series Politics, History and Social Change, edited by John C. Torpey
