More > challenged the practicality of the city. Analogously, the beauty and frailty of flower opposed the brute power of the metal sword. Callidora is that garden of otherworldly delight, where flowers, love, and the symbolic language of beauty struggled for supremacy with the lust for power on the stage of the human experience.

Take a journey back to the ancient past, through the eyes of Romanticism.< Less

More > Republic on the dynamism and contrast between sense (the head) and sensibility (the heart) was Kant’s discourse on phenomenon and its antipode, noumenon. Mathematics is abstract form but it is not beauty. A rose is beauty but it is not abstract form. The language of mathematics in scientific realism became a central component of the Age of Reason.
