Summary
  • "The Philosophy of Shipbuilding explores the conceptual approach underlying ship design and construction. The shipwright's philosophy of shipbuilding is shaped by personality, culture, and experience. The study of shipbuilding requires academic rigor, a practical mechanical sense and a disciplined imagination, all of which are demonstrated in the scholarship of the contributing authors." "Ships were the most complex constructions of any society until just before the Industrial Revolution. The chapters of this book explore the diversity of approaches to shipbuilding at different times and in different places. Experts in the field present the latest information from nautical archaeological excavations."
  • "This book is a reference work for those interested in the ancient world, especially in the art of shipbuilding."--Jacket
