Aims and Scope
Online, offline, airline, guideline, line in the sand, the horizon – lines are omnipresent in our daily lives. They also play a central role in the arts, philosophy, and science. Lines are as basic to our understanding of the world as images, writing, and numbers, and they operate in different ways. The volume presents reflections about lines from the domains of philosophy, mathematics, ethnography, anthropology, cartography, and art theory.
