Por mucho tiempo ha sido uno de mis libros favoritos. La edición es de Stolzenberg, pero ahí adentroentre los autores, se encuentra un pequeño capítulo titulado "Between the Demonic and the Miraculous: Kirhcer and the Baroque Culture of Machines", de Michael John Gorman. Lectura obligada para aquellos interesados en el tejido simbólico de la técnica. Absolutamente genial.
