(70) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-04-01 04:36:20+00:00 From: Willard McCarty Subject: drawing and thinking On this subject there's quite a lot of papers and books on specialised forms of drawing -- diagramming and flowcharting come immediately to mind. On diagramming: from Venn's On the diagrammatic and mechanical representations of propositions and reasoning (1880) to Gardner's Logic machines and diagrams (1958), Larkin and Simon's Why a diagram is sometimes worth ten thousand words (1987), to Blackwell's Thinking with diagrams (2001), Dörfler's Diagrammatic thinking (2005) and Stjernfelt and Østergaard, Diagrammatic problem solving (2016). On flowcharting:from Playfair's The commercial and political atlas (1801), Gilbreth and Gilbreth's Process charts (1921) to Krämer and Ljungberg, Thinking with diagrams (2016). There's Swade's Automatic computation (2010), with a reproduction of Babbage's Mechanical Notation flowchart. Everyone will think of Tufte's books. But digging deeper, perhaps by going wider, would be very good -- on the kinaesthetics of thinking with the drawing instrument &c.

I don't work in this field, however I was a student at Liceo Classico (high school with Greek and Latin grammar and literature) where I studied philosophy,history of art, some basics about aesthetics, and I loved drawing and knowing techniques. As a primary school teacher I'm fond of illustrators and I was in contact with people working at museums offering laboratories to the children. Let me know if my experiences can be useful to the debate.

Humanist Discussion Group, Vol. 32, No. 583. Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London Hosted by King's Digital Lab www.dhhumanist.org Submit to: email@example.com Date: 2019-03-30 10:19:13+00:00 From: Ken Friedman Subject: Research Request: Drawing and Thinking Dear Colleagues, Do any of the subscribers to this list work in the field of drawing and thinking? I'm looking for someone with a focus on such questions as these: - How does drawing represent reality? - How does drawing help designers to shape future realities that do not exist when they are drawn? - What is the relationship between drawing and the evolving states of designed artefacts? - Does drawing make thinking visible? - If drawing makes thinking visible, how does this take place? - What effects do drawing create on evolving human thought? - What relationships exist between drawing and other forms of information visualisation? - How does drawing function as a form of diagrammatic thinking? - Do diagrams, models, and chart s represent a version of drawing? - What relationships are worth considering between drawing and knowledge representation of other kinds? - What does the current literature across different fields tell us about drawing? This is an open-ended inquiry. If these topics suggest questions that I have not asked, I'd be interested in suggestions. At this point, I don't want to say more about my interest in the topic. I'm interested in leaving this open while I wait to hear from others. I will post some notes on the responses. If anyone wishes their thoughts and comments to remain confidential, I will not post it. Please write me directly - OFF LIST - at email firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
