									Masons, Tricksters and Cartographers
Author: David Turnbull

Edition: 1

In an eclectic and highly original study, Turnbull brings together a wide range of traditions as diverse as
cathedral building, Micronesian navigation, cartography and turbulence research. He argues that all our
differing ways of producing knowledge, including science, are messy, spatial and local. Every culture has
its own ways of assembling local knowledge, thereby creating space through the linking of people,
practices and places. The spaces we inhabit and assemblages we work with are not as homogeneous
and coherent as our modernist perspectives have led us to believe-rather they are complex and
heterogeneous motleys.
