Overview

Philosophy for Architects is an engaging and easy-to-grasp introduction to philosophical questions ofinterest to students of architectural theory. Topics include Aristotle's theories of "visual imagination" and their relevance to digital design, the problem of optical correction as explored by Plato, Hegel's theory of zeitgeist, and Kant's examinations of space and aesthetics, among others.
