192 pages, illustrations, diagrams, cloth, DJ, very good. 8.5 by 11 inches. Color photographs by Rod Bull. From the DJ: "TIME STANDS STILL offers intriguing new interpretations of artefacts, such as Stonehenge, of the Neolithic and early metal-working ages. Keith Critchlow uses a technique of cross-cultural comparison to uncover certain universal traits of the Neolithic peoples." From Wikipedia: "Having been originally trained as a classical painter, he has authored many books on geometry, including Order in Space, Islamic Pattern as a Cosmological Art, and Time Stands Still. He has also contributed the forewords to English editions of works by Titus Burckhardt, Frithjof Schuon, and others. Critchlow was formerly a lecturer at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London for twelve years, and had been a professor of Islamic Art at the Royal College of Art in London from 1975 for many years. He founded Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts (VITA) school in 1984, which moved from the Royal College of Art to The Prince's Institute of Architecture in 1992–3, where he was director of research. The institute later evolved into The Prince's Foundation, within which Prince's School of Traditional Arts was housed. He is a professor emeritus at VITA and serves as director for research. He also taught at the The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment in London. He is a leading expert in sacred architecture and sacred geometry and founded Kairos, a society which investigates, studies, and promotes traditional values of art and science. He served there as director of studies. Critchlow's architectural work includes the Krishnamurti Study Centre in England, the Lindisfarne Chapel in Crestone, Colorado, in the United States with a special design for the vaulting of the dome, and The Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences in Puttaparthi, India. Isaac Tigrett, who had founded the Hard Rock Cafe enterprise, secured Critchlow’s aid to design a hospital in the Prasanthi Nilayam ashram in Puttuparthi. Critchlow's use of sacred geometry played a major role in these architectural designs and projects." ; 192 pages. N° de réf. du libraire
Synopsis : Keith Critchlow, an internationally-renowned scholar, has studied a wide range of Neolithic artefacts. In "Time Stands Still", he adopts a technique of cross-cultural comparison to uncover some previously unknown characteristics of the Neolithic people. He takes ancient temple-building manuals from Indian Vedic sources, for example, and applies them to British sites - with fascinating results. He examines Chinese pictographs for evidence of sighting instruments and scientific tools. Perhaps most significantly, he offers evidence that stone-carved spheres with regular mathematical symmetries, found in Scotland, pre-date Plato's writings on geometric figures by more than a thousand years. The remarkable findings of this groundbreaking book are just as important today as when the book was first published.
About the Author: Professor Keith Critchlow is a well-known lecturer and author. He is a founder member of RILKO (Research Into Lost Knowledge Organisation), a founder member and Director of Studies of Kairos and a founder member and President of the Temenos Academy. He has been a senior lecturer at the Architectural Association in London and has taught Islamic Art at the Royal College of Art; he now lectures worldwide on architecture and sacred geometry. His many previous books include Order in Space, Islamic Patterns: An Analytical and Cosmological Approach, Markings: Aerial Views of Sacred Landscapes, and Soul as Sphere and Androgyne.
