'Two small, confined communities in which established connections are cut across by shifting allegiances as people come and go: in cold climate as in hot, now as then, love is a complicated, compromising business' Times Literary Supplement A young man leans over the railings of the ocean liner bound for the exotic shores of Penang. It is early in the 1930s and Dr Alexander Mackay is on his way to take up his post running a maternity hospital in the colony. During the voyage he meets two beautiful sisters and the seeds of a scandal are sown. Seventy years later Edward Mackay wakes after a major brain trauma. In the hazy shadowlands of illness, he conjures the figure of his dead father, a man he knew so little about. This near-death experience provokes a move to the wilds of Orkney, where Edward joins a project to harness the tides around the island as a renewable source of energy. But in the tight-knit island community passions also run high.

The powerful social and cultural transformations of recent decades as expressed in the shape and form of the city need to be examined and reviewed. New methods and procedures in urban planning and a new relationship between town and land are urgently required. Learning from China calls to mind that seminal work of the post-modern, Learning from Las Vegas, and relates the principles of Taoist thought and action to the perspectives for a new urban design beyond that of today, truly post modern.

PLOTINUS EnneadV 8 On Intelligible Beauty

See V.3.8, 20f. for further elaboration of this double function of light in the intelligible world: “Sight, since it is light, or rather united with light, ... Intellect therefore sees one light with another, not through another.

Plotinus' Ennead V.8, originally part of a single work (with III.8, V.5, and II.9), provides the foundation for a positive view of the universe as an image of divine beauty against the Gnostic rejection of the world. Although it emphasizes the cosmic dimension of beauty, it is, as are most treatises of Plotinus, concerned with the individual soul. The notion that the artist has within him an idea of beauty that derives directly from the intelligible world in fact coincides with his theory that each one of us has access to Intellect through his or her own intellect. It is the exploitation of this theme that forms the central dynamic of the treatise, with its stress on our ability to "e;see"e; and be one with the intelligible world and its beauty.
