Die Stillehre dagegen fasst das Schöne einheitlich, als Produkt oder Resultat, nicht als Summe oder Reihe. Sie sucht die Bestandteile der shape die nicht selbst shape sind, sondern Idee, Kraft, Stoff und Mittel; gleichsam die Vorbestandteile und Grundbedingungen der shape. [...]
Der vorliegende erste Band befasst sich mit der Textilen Kunst. Gottfried Semper beleuchtet diese für sich selbst und stellt sie in Beziehung zur Baukunst dar.
Dieses Werk des berühmten deutschen Architekten (u.a. Semperoper in Dresden) und Kunsttheoretikers ist auch heute noch ein äußerst lesenswertes Buch. Es handelt sich hierbei um den unveränderten Nachdruck der längst vergriffenen Originalausgabe der zweiten Auflage von 1878.
