Conservation principles--addendum

From: Niccolo Caldararo <caldararo>
Date: Friday, September 8, 2006
In addition to what I said earlier about Conservation Principles
(Conservation DistList Instance: 20:11 Monday, August 28, 2006), I
should add that the real task, the effort for which the result seems
impossible, is to preserve without destroying.  This was a point
that Nathan Stolow pursued in a number of works, certainly expressed
quite clearly in his Artscanada article in Feb. of 1969. Shortly
after he edited a group of papers in a volume, Progress in
Conservation, that delineated many questions with specific cases.
