Fine Lines - Vladimir Nabokov's Scientific Art (Hardcover): Stephen H Blackwell, Kurt Johnson Fine Lines - Vladimir Nabokov's Scientific Art (Hardcover)

R955 R876 Discovery Miles 8 760 Save R79 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The first comprehensive, interdisciplinary accounting of Nabokov's scientific work, its significance in his artistry, and his contribution to evolutionary theory This landmark book is the first full appraisal of Vladimir Nabokov's long-neglected contributions as a scientist. Although his literary achievements are renowned, until recently his scientific discoveries were ignored or dismissed by many. Nabokov created well over 1,000 technical illustrations of the anatomical structures of butterflies, seeking to understand the evolutionary diversity of small butterflies called Blues. But only lately have scientists confirmed his meticulous research and vindicated his surprising hypotheses. This volume reproduces 154 of Nabokov's drawings, few of which have ever been seen in public, and presents essays by ten leading scientists and Nabokov specialists. The contributors underscore the significance of Nabokov's drawings as scientific documents, evaluate his visionary contributions to evolutionary biology and systematics, and offer insights into his unique artistic perception and creativity.

This book details the vision of interspirituality within a comprehensive and powerful synthesis of world religions and spirituality, the discoveries of modern science, and the developmental and evolutionary view of history. It is the first book to review and predict the ongoing history of world religions and spirituality in the context of developmental history, the evolutionary consciousness movement, and current scientific understandings of anthropology, human cognitive development, brain/mind and scientific consciousness studies.
This book addresses Brother WayneTeasdale's vision of The Interspiritual Age, a vision that parallels the equally well-known and publicized visions of the world's developmental and evolutionary consciousness movements (known therein as coming Integral Age or Age of Evolutionary Consciousness) and the international humanist movement (known therein as the emerging international Ethical Manifold). As such The Coming Interspiritual Age is the first synthesis of interfaith and interspirituality with the popular writings of integral leaders Ken Wilber and Don Beck.
The book includes provocative sections regarding the inherent unity within the world's religious and spiritual understanding (especially their shared mystical understandings), the relationship of these and modern scientific studies of consciousness and brain/mind, the developmental and evolutionary views of history, the inevitable ongoing processes of world globalization and multiculturalism, the emergent understanding of the Divine Feminine, the nature of spiritual experience and the reputed spirit realms, and the various predictions around and surrounding the year 2012. The book concludes with extensive how-to sections regarding the development and practice of interspirituality as it can happen both within the world's current religious traditions as well as in new, creative and entrepreneurial settings worldwide.

“This insidiously charming book teaches readers about the place of lepidoptery in the life sciences and the kinds of questions that natural scientists seek to answer....Like Nabokov himself, this volume exemplifies some of the virtues shared by art and science: wit, intelligence, and, above all, meticulousness.”-—The New Yorker


“Charming...In a world that often separates science and culture like church and state, this book reminds us that, for Nabokov, butterflies helped shape ‘a habitual way of looking at the world’ that was ultimately conducive to great literature and to great lepidoptery alike.”-—New York Times Book Review


“...a grand book: erudite, generous, and wise. It is written with a grace and intelligence worthy of its eponymous subject.”-—Boston Globe


“Readers with a taste for science and literature will love this book, which is both entertaining and polymathically informative—rather like the English/Russian, naturalist/novelist/scholar/artist Nabokov himself.”---Publishers Weekly (starred review)
