Austrian philosopher, economist and member of the Vienna Circle, Otto Neurath ­(1882–1945) investigated representational maps for more than two decades of his life.In search of “humanizing knowledge” he revolutionized the discipline of chart making by quantitative maps (picture statistics) accessible to a large public. In this book, Sophie Hochhäusl argues that Neurath’s map “City Planning” served not only as one of the first accessible socio-political maps of a city, but it was in effect also a heuristic architectural device. Hochhäusl also explores the extent to which Neurath perceived of the city as an agglomeration of social facts, and how far his socio-political map contributed to planning the city on such basis.With a preface by Bart Lootsma.
