Book Details


First Sentence

"THE NOTION of proportion is, in logic as well as in Aesthetics, one of the most elementary, most important, and most difficult to sort out with precision; it is either confused with the notion of ratio, which comes logically before it, or (especially when talking of proportions in the plural) with the notion of a chain of characteristics ratios linked together by a modulus, a common sub-multiple; we have then the more complex concept which the Greeks and Vitruvius called "Symmetria," and the Renaissance architects, "Commodulatio.""
