Schriftenreihe des Weißenhof-Instituts zur Architektur- und Designtheorie
Architecture and design are objects that have been neglected in the history of philosophical aesthetics since their genesis as an independent discipline in the 18th century. With art or a self-sufficient sensual experience as the paradigm the aesthetic tradition has had problems to acknowledge the practical nature of architectural works and design objects.
The Schriftenreihe des Weißenhof-Instituts zur Architektur- und Designtheorie
publishes contributions to fundamental and more specific philosophical questions related to architecture and design. In a dialogue with aesthetic practice and with neighboring sciences the series aims at a clarification of basic concepts of architecture and design as well as to critically put them to test in the light of recent developments in architecture and design.
