Publisher Description

Digital Dragon: The Road to Nirvana runs through the land of Tao offers a new perspective on art and science in East and West. Starting in the 19th century, Western science and technology helped to modernize the East. Not widely known is that Far Eastern aesthetics played a crucial role in modernizing Western art and architecture. Traditional East Asia had many qualities we consider modern today.  While East Asia failed to develop a natural science, it developed what we may call a natural aesthetic. The merger of Western science and Far Eastern aesthetics is a key driver of our emerging planetary culture. Digital Dragon shows why:​


• Culture plays a far greater role in historical development than we usually assume
• East Asia rather than India replaces the West as the world's most influential region
• Gottfried Leibniz claimed the Chinese first used the binary code in the I Ching 
• Chinese projection system "axonometry" is the key to understanding the Modernist Revolution
• Developing robots with AI is the art and science of reconciling spirit and matter
