Platón, Leonardo y el sistema del Monte Carmelo
About: From the beginning, man has pictured himself installed in a symbolic system, in a metric structure of space and time, through which he comprehends reality. World, city, temple and calendar traditionally respond to this design. This book is dedicated to the study of these structures and their transformations, focusing on Plato's and Leonardo da Vinci conceptions, and in its modern architectural representation on the slopes of Mount Carmel.
