READ & DOWNLOAD Lines A Brief History 100 What do walking weaving observing storytelling singing drawing and writing have in commonThe answer is that they all proceed along lines In this extraordinary book Tim Ingold imagines a world in which everyone and everything consists of interwoven or interconnected lines and lays the foundations for a completely new discipline the anthropological archaeology of the lineIngold's argument leads us through the music of Ancient G. I have to admit that initially I had some problems with Ingold s approach this is obviously not a history of the line as the subtitle suggests And his approach is so fragmentary and loose that I got lost a bit in his detailed analyses of musical notation the techniue of writing and printing and the design of genealogical family trees etc What also always bothers me in the work of anthropologists is the antagonism they at all costs want to prove between Western modernity and traditional cultures with usually a very negative undertone regarding modernity Also Ingold follows that line a bit at times I even had the impression that I was reading a downright anti modernist manifesto He often puts straight lines connecting points moving from one point to another displaying evolutionary developments in line structures etc on 1 line pun intended with rationalistic reductionism read straightness and confronts them with the looser forms of gesture singing wandering in traditional societies and suggesting that is a much richer way of approaching reality As befits an anthropologist he obviously illustrates this with examples of traditional peoples but he also cites evidence from Western antiuity and the Middle Ages and that is strange For example handwriting is compared to printing and machine computer writing as a completely different mental processMind you of course it is a different mental process but it seems to me that the historical reality is a lot nuanced in our modernist approach many traditionalistic elements are included Moreover this modernist straight line rationalistic approach is not by definition negative she made possible a scientific technological approach that has made our world a whole lot livable with of course also important reverse sidesNow don t misunderstand me this is a really interesting book Ingold s musings about lines and their influence on the way we look at reality are indeed relevant And he is honest enough to bring on some nuances But he also refuses to draw conclusions deliberately so Lines are open ended and it is this open endedness of lives relationships histories and processes of thought that I have wanted to celebrate I hope that in doing so I have left plentiful loose ends for others to follow and to take in any ways they wish Far from seeking closure my aim has been to prise an opening This is an enticing invitation but it left me a bit unsatisfied Maybe I should also try his next works

A thought provoking book It never occurred to me that lines are so ubiuitous The author gives a profound account of what is constituted as lines thread trace crack crevice and so on including imaginary lines we are continually creating but often blind to their existence Also how the stories of lines are recounted in relation to writing drawing storytelling plotting to say the least is so captivating I wonder if the idea of lines in other Asian societies would run in the same direction although he gave an example of Chinese calligraphy Whether there is a universal idea of lines is worth giving a though to
