Prometheus, Genesis and the Tower of Babel

May 13, 2013

This may seem random, but this paragraph caught my eye and reminded me of Bernard Beckett’s Genesis.

The stories of Prometheus, Genesis and the Tower of Babel all tell about an initiation into complementarity: good and evil, joy and suffering, success and defeat, pride and shame, harmony and conflict, knowledge and ignorance, vulnerability and control. If we truly wish to heal our landscapes and the design professions while improving our quality of life, we must not forsake our vulnerability.” (p.132)
