Diagrams and ripples

Filed under: Uncategorized — hipbone @ 7:06 pm

Abbot Joachim of Fiore (circa1200) was the first great advocate of “end of the world” thinking in Catholic Christianity since St Augustine put it on the back burner, and also a very early user of conceptual diagrams to explain complex issues.

Here I link one of Joachim’s diagrams — of which there’s a whole set — with the beautiful work of designer David Armano. Do please visit David’s blog and see what he’s up to here — this particular diagram of his isn’t just good looking, it’s highly thinkative, too.
