Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Example text

Pride in Europe: The gap between populations and political elites A group of German and English political scientists have published a large, informative study on Political Representation and Legitimacy in the European Union (Schmitt and Thomassen 1999). Two sources of data were used: (a) population surveys in connection with the elections to the European Parliament from 1979 till 1994 in all member states of the EU/EU plus the candidate countries Austria, Finland, and Sweden; (b) surveys of all candidates and members of the national parliaments and the European Parliament.

1 shows that 62% are in favour of such a constitution. 9 In this survey, 73% were for more transparency in the workings of the European Council, and 70% were in favour of the right of a citizen’s petition (as foreseen in the constitution). Thus, we must conclude that also the Dutch, critical about the European Constitution, did not vote for its putting away. Contrary to the political elites, they wanted it to be reworked and renegotiated (see also the following section). Thus, we should see the rejection of this version of the constitution as a chance, not as a catastrophe, for the further process of integration (Kühnhardt 2005).

2% cannot be considered as being very high since participation in the referendum was obligatory. Also in Luxembourg, the now familiar split between citizens and elites emerged. 1). 2%, respectively, of the deputies voted in favour of the constitution. ” The main arguments of the pro-voters were the general positive EU attitude and the popularity of PM Juncker. The arguments of the nonvoters were more concerned with the constitution itself: That the constitution was “too complicated” and too liberal, and that it needs renegotiation, and opposition to further enlargement of the EU.
