Sozialforschungsinstitut Brooklyn

A propos of nothing in particular, this is a really cool image - it looks like Rube Goldberg theology! It appears (unidentified) on the website of the fledgling Brooklyn Institute of Social Research, an upstart offshoot of Columbia, combining, I sense, the lore of The New School (which on some accounts peeled away from Columbia) with the intellectual project of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research (which was for a time based at Columbia). I wish them well!

(Ah: picture source - it's mid-17th century. Thanks, Frank.)
