Sources of Power/Population

Description

Modern Man in the Making, p. 68-9. These charts from Modern Man in the Making show the connection between energy production, industrialization, and urbanization which, we saw earlier, is a sign of lower death rates. Constructing these charts and graphics required an interdisciplinary team of researchers, artists, designers, and "transformers" who devised ways of visually representing numerical data. It also required an overall strategy, a "uniform method" and a "grammar" to ensure that information was presented consistently. Just as the unity of science required that scientists develop loyalties to researchers in other disciplines, Neurath's Isotype projects required a team approach—based on trust and common methods—to analyze and present of scientific information.
