Dick Raaijmakers - De Methode
In Dutch. So good to be able to read ‘The Method’ again in its original language. Because a poetic, singluar book like this seems hard to translate. Hats off to Belgian publisher Het Balanseer…
This classic work from 1984 reads as a kind of poem, though completely in prose. In an extremely precise way Raaijmakers expands on the way humans deal with technical constructions, and how they relate to their world, with spot-on, often funny observations that open unexpected insights. Because of this systematical exactness it feels like a method indeed.
