Built upon Love: Architectural Longing after Ethics and Aesthetics (MIT Press) Reviews
The book and the service-excellent!
It is a wonderful book.
This book cannot come at a better time in my life. I've been asking questions (to people who bother to listen as well as to my own self) which had seemed to be from far different worlds. But as I read this book, those questions suddently connect to one another, and if Perez-Gomez didn't provide the answer to some of the questions at least it is a relief that there are people out there who have been asking the same questions. Written in a way that one can feel the similarity of structure of this writing to other arts (a theatre play, a poem, an ode, etc), Built Upon Love might first give an impression of such writings that use Greek myths and legends only to get away from the issues the writer actually knows very little about. But as one reads further, it turns out the writer of this book does know what he writes about, and it just suddenly dawns why he began the book the way it did.
