Donald Judd: Specifics

New from Yale: Donald Judd, Specifics, by David Raskin.

The blurb describes a complex figure who “found spiritual values in plywood, Plexiglas, and industrial production” and “refused to distinguish between thinking and feeling while asserting that science marked the limits of knowledge.”
