Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names, and concepts relevant to the discussion of tu, technical images, and on their relationship with written text in the production of technical knowledge. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. The book encompasses a broad range of graphic forms and categories of specialised knowledge, from metaphysical cosmograms and magical talismans through mathematical diagrams to coroner's charts. It is the first collection of studies devoted specifically to tu as technical images, and to the functional relation of such tu to the written text which almost invariably accompanies them.

Keywords: coroner's charts; magical talismans; mathematical diagrams; metaphysical cosmograms; tu
