Portada
Rowman Altamira, 2006 - 151 pàgines
Museums and libraries inspire us to cross the limits of routine thought, into experiences of reflection and possibility. Each of the essays in A Place Not a Place examines the ways these and other cultural institutions influence us and proposes ways to strengthen their roles as advocates for critical thinking and inquiry.
