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.

Sample text

In this introductory chapter the term ‘family’ is used throughout, as it reflects a broader notion of a ‘private domain’ that is centred around intimate blood relations and embraces also a broader set of blood-related ties. 4 A draft paper of this chapter was presented for comment during a seminar given at the LSE in February 2004. I am grateful for comments from participants, including Marlies Glasius, Hakan Seckinelgin, Karen Wright, and Bakin Babajanian. 5 Though most writers often depart from this in positioning the economy as separate from civil society, which is conceived as the realm of voluntary association around shared concerns.

If feminism is a movement that has arisen according to specific historical and cultural contexts, then calling for a feminist ‘movement’ demanding particular political identities in advance 32 Barbara Einhorn and Charlie Sever of the creation of those identities is approaching the process the wrong way round. As Judit Acsády has noted ‘Woman does not constitute a “we” group. This may be one of the reasons why women’s self organising . . is still weak’ (Acsády 1999: 406). Western feminist assumptions that ‘gender is a paramount issue in transitional/transformation societies, unlike poverty, privatization, weak political parties, for example’ did not necessarily map onto this context (Roman 2001: 61).
