“Man In Equipoise” Uploaded

I have uploaded Giedion’s essay “Man In Equipoise” which functions as an afterword to his monumental study Mechanization Takes Command.  I believe this is the only place one can find this essay on the Internet in its unabridged form.  Panarchy.com has a version of it which Giedion apparently wrote some years after its original appearance in MTC in 1948, but this is highly abridged.  The iteration I have uploaded is from the American edition published by W. W. Norton in 1969.  In addition, it reproduces the original typographic format exactly.  There is one word that is almost certainly a misprint after which I have placed the notation “[sic]”, leaving the original word as printed.  The interested reader will find it in my Articles section.
