Yates, Frances A.
The Art of Memory
Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1966; University of Chicago Press, 1993
Pythagoras, links between geometry-music-architecture, religion, cosmology, number symbolism, magic squares, astrology, occultism, ancient, medieval, renaissance, Europe
Essential reading for those who wish to understand how architecture has historically been used as a meme-system to embody philosophical and metaphysical concepts -- and how Pythagorean religion and science were transformed into neo-Pythagorean occultism during the Renaisance. I recommend this book highly to practicing architects, who might otherwise overlook it. If you only read one chapter, let it be the one on the memory-theater of Guido Camillo. CY
