Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Contents I. Community -- II. Democracy -- III. Globalism -- Biographical Sketch of the Life of Otto Neurath.
Summary Building on the success of its well-received hardback predecessor, this book tells the story of a long-neglected giant in the history of the Information Age. Otto Neurath was a philosopher who wanted to supersede philosophy, a museum administrator who despised conventional museums, a sociologist who distrusted sociological methods and a city planner who was critical of the city. This book explores Neurath's ideas on the modern metropolis, his fascination with visual media and the Vienna Method of Pictorial Statistics, and the ways in which Neurath attempted to internationalize the aims of his Museum of Society and Economy through collaborations with CIAM and Otlet and by establishing satellite museums across the world.
