"Phaenias of Eresus (c. 375 BC) was a member of Aristotle's school, the ""Peripatos"" or ""Lyceum,"" and a friend and compatriot of Aristotle's successor, Theophrastus. Phaenias's scholarly interests stretched from strictly philosophical treatises to chronology and the history of philosophy and poetry; to the lives, fortunes, and manners of death of tyrants; to biographical and historical themes and details of famous Athenians; to botanical and zoological issues; and even entertaining, ""novelistic"" stories and strange reports (Mirabilia).This volume includes new scholarship, with translation of source texts for the writings, thought, and influence of Phaenias (whose name also appears as ""Phanias""and ""Phainias""), as well as essays that take up various areas of his life and work in greater detail.The chapters of Phaenias of Eresus cover a remarkable range of intellectual areas, which is in keeping with the varied interests of the early Peripatetics in general. Phaenias is thus an ideal model for exploring issues of specialization and differentiation in research in the early Peripatos."

"Art is made everywhere," says Peter Piller in an interview. The forty-nine-year-old knows what he’s talking about. He has spent years looking through the archives of regional newspapers or at aerial photographs of single-family homes in Germany, then making a selection available to the public in book and exhibition form. In effect, these mostly anonymous photographs have something ridiculous, humorous, and fathomless in common. For his new series, Erscheinungen (Manifestations), Piller spent more than three years at freeway rest stops, taking pictures of the often filthy or damaged backsides of trucks displaying figures of women from ads. Because he removes all typography, however, the ladies’ gestures and poses relate to nothing. The results are meaningful, yet ultimately mysterious "manifestations." Like Piller’s other volumes, this new publication of his archive is a veritable artist’s book - a real collector’s item.
