Architectural Principles in the Age of Fraud

Philosophy exercises a massive influence on contemporary architectural culture and the understanding of the built environment. Discussions of architects and architectural academics are heavily loaded with theoretical ideas, concepts and views imported from the works of philosophers. At the same time this architectural employment of philosophy rarely goes beyond the tendency to mine philosophical works for ideas, words and phrases and use them, often without much understanding, in order to promote architectural agendas and embellish theoretical claims made by architects and academics. The book presents the history of this phenomenon
for the past hundred years. It describes and analyzes numerous examples of false intellectual pretense across prominent architectural influences of the era and their efforts to bamboozle readers, colleagues and the general public.
