Deontology is my profession
More and more companies have begun to implement guidelines on "work ethics". To do this, they have hired the services of "deontologists" who supervise the company’s moral values and behavior.
This number has exerted a fascination on many for thousands of years. The Golden Number is represented by the Greek letter Phi after the Greek sculptor Phidias (500 BC), who used it to work on the statue of Athena in the Parthenon in Athens. But it actually already existed at the temple of Andros (10000 BC) and more specifically on the pyramid of Kheops (2800 BC). Geometers, philosophers and architects hold that the Golden Number is nothing short of a unique set of exact proportions, a kind of dimensional harmony that leads to precise proportions.
Whether we are addressing the general proportions of a structure or certain details within it, the use of the Golden Number always achieves a perfect visual balance. Painters such as Gericault in « L’Amour Vache », Dali and Picasso used it. Defined by a mathematical equation, the Golden Number is magical because it can be used in many different cases. It represents the half-base height ratio of the Kheops pyramid, just as accurately as certain proportions expressed in the paintings of the Renaissance or, closer to our time, in the construction of the Thoiry castle in France.
