First published in 1996, The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory. It asks the far-reaching question why, when there are five senses, has one single sense – sight – become so predominant in architectural culture and design? With the ascendancy of the digital and the all-pervasive use of the image electronically, it is a subject that has become all the more pressing and topical since the first edition’s publication in the mid-1990s. Juhani Pallasmaa argues that the suppression of the other four sensory realms has led to the overall impoverishment of our built environment, often diminishing the emphasis on the spatial experience of a building and architecture’s ability to inspire, engage and be wholly life enhancing. For every student studying Pallasmaa’s classic text for the first time, The Eyes of the Skin is a revelation. It compellingly provides a totally fresh insight into architectural culture. This third edition meets readers’ desire for a further understanding of the context of Pallasmaa’s thinking by providing a new essay by architectural author and educator Peter MacKeith. This text combines both a biographical portrait of Pallasmaa and an outline of his architectural thinking, its origins and its relationship to the wider context of Nordic and European thought, past and present. The focus of the essay is on the fundamental humanity, insight and sensitivity of Pallasmaa’s approach to architecture, bringing him closer to the reader. This is illustrated by Pallasmaa’s sketches and photographs of his own work. The new edition also provides a foreword by the internationally renowned architect Steven Holl and a revised introduction by Pallasmaa himself.

Since the book's first publication, interest in the role of the body and the senses has been emerging in both architectural philosophy and teaching. This new, revised and extended edition of this seminal work will not only inspire architects and students to design more holistic architecture, but will enrich the general reader's perception of the world around them. The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory and consists of two extended essays. The first surveys the historical development of the ocular-centric paradigm in western culture since the Greeks, and its impact on the experience of the world and the nature of architecture. The second examines the role of the other senses in authentic architectural experiences, and points the way towards a multi-sensory architecture which facilitates a sense of belonging and integration.

In our current global networked culture that puts so much emphasison the virtual and the visual, the mind and the body have becomedetached and ultimately disconnected. Though physical appearance isidolised for its sexual appeal and its social identity, the role ofthe body in developing a full understanding of the physical worldand the human condition has become neglected. The potential of thehuman body as a knowing entity – with all our senses as wellas our entire bodily functions being structured to produce andmaintain silent knowledge together – fails to be recognised. It is only through the unity of mind and body that craftsmanshipand artistic work can be fully realised. Even those endeavours thatare generally regarded as solely intellectual, such as writing andthinking, depend on this union of mental and manual skills. In The Thinking Hand, Juhani Pallasmaa reveals themiraculous potential of the human hand. He shows how the pencil inthe hand of the artist or architect becomes the bridge between theimagining mind and the emerging image. The book surveys themultiple essences of the hand, its biological evolution and itsrole in the shaping of culture, highlighting how thehand–tool union and eye–hand–mind fusion areessential for dexterity and how ultimately the body and the sensesplay a crucial role in memory and creative work. Pallasmaa herecontinues the exploration begun in his classic work The Eyes ofthe Skin by further investigating the interplay of emotion andimagination, intelligence and making, theory and life, once againredefining the task of art and architecture through well-groundedhuman truths.

Cell biology involves a range of techniques for examining how cells function, regulate their own behavior, and interact with their neighbors. This book, the first in a series of five comprehensive methods handbooks, covers key protocols in this dynamic field including cellular organelles, cell growth and division, cell movement, cell signaling, and cell death. Because molecular biology approaches are widely used in cell biology, a few essential techniques from that field are also included.

ABSTRACT This dissertation deeply explores characterization within Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick. Specifically, this study focuses on the heavily tattooed character Queequeg and his treatment throughout the novel. Sentence by sentence, words and their connotations are analyzed to determine if words associated with Queequeg are postive, negative or neutral. The findings of the study lead to a gathering of words into groups, some groups having overlapping features. Word groups discovered and listed from negative to postive are titled: 1) violence 2) animal 3) negative wording 4) cultural ignorance 5) debatable language 6) positive/negative combinations 7) male gaze 8) Queequeg others 9) contextual dichotomy 10) neutral/factual 11) tone change 12) positive wording and 13) cultural understanding. When each word group is counted we find positive wording outnumbers negative wording by more than two-to-one.
