An attempt to let the “two cultures” meet: relationship between science and architecture in the design of Greek temples.

Claudio D’Amato

Vol. 4 (2016), No. 3-4, 471–484

Editor’s note: This unusual paper appears by invitation as an illustration of Lucio Russo’s far-reaching influence. The author writes:

The present contribution is aimed at stimulating some reflections on the fracture existing (and enlarging) between what were famously called “the two cultures” by C. P. Snow in his influential book (Snow, C. P., The two cultures and the scientific revolution: The Rede Lecture. Cambridge Univ. P., 1959). The focus is on the architecture of Greek temples of Classical and Hellenistic age. At the same time, some possibility to fill the gap is described, based on my experience and my scientific interaction with Lucio Russo, to whom this editorial is dedicated.
