Encountering Things brings together leading design scholars to explore the relationship between thing theory and design, exploring production processes and offering an engaging, theoretical perspective about the social and cultural lives of objects. Focusing on the themes of process and product, the contributors investigate the productive interplay between the activity of design and the objects that design uses and produces. Chapters span the design disciplines and essays examine the processes by which objects, things, and artifacts are made; the lives of design objects; and things in their cultural contexts. Theoretical discussion is encouraged by in-depth case studies of things themselves. Each chapter includes an informational sidebar per essay and a useful glossary of key terms.

Nicholas of Cusa lived, and continues to reside, in extremes: during his lifetime he was already considered one of the most influential personalities of the Occident, but in death this German theologian, philosopher, champion of the church, and cardinal was transfigured into a true beacon of the dark medieval times. He managed to overcome the hurdles of scholarly dogmatism and religious zeal, and was a harbinger of an epoch of curiosity and intellectual awakening. Important also was the super elevation of Nicholas' convictions that natural sciences and mathematics held the key to the highest humanly possible achievements. Over centuries, his credo was pushed to the brink of oblivion, only to find a resurgence as a "Cusanus - Renaissance" in the late 19th and 20th centuries. How influential Nicholas of Cusa has been on our techno-scientific and progressively focused contemporary consciousness, is, however still quite an open and exciting question, one to which this book will try and contribute. German text.

Die folgende Schrift erhebt nicht den Anspruch, die philosophischen Probleme, die durch die Relativit�tstheorie aufgeworfen werden, zur vollst�ndigen Darstellung zu bringen. Ich bin mir bewu�t, da� die neuen Aufgaben, vor welche auch die allgemeine Erkenntniskritik durch diese Theorie gestellt worden ist, nur in allm�hlicher gemeinsamer Arbeit der Physiker und Philosophen bew�ltigt werden k�nnen[...]Das Ziel dieser Schrift w�re erreicht, wenn es ihr gel�nge, in Fragen, �ber welche das Urteil der Philosophen und der Physiker noch weit auseinandergeht, eine wechselseitige Verst�ndigung zwischen beiden anzubahnen. [Ernst Cassirer, Vorwort dieser Schrift]
