Princeton University Press (1979)

Scruton takes his readers on a journey through aesthetic theory and tries in every sense to apply them directly to architecture. By using theories from Kant, Marx, Freud, Hume, Alberti, Ruskin and many others on topics such as constructivism, and literary theory, Scruton tries to find the essence of architecture. Has architecture an essence?

"This book is powerful and unusual. . . . The author combines wide knowledge of both buildings and the main writings on architecture with searching philosophical analysis."--The Literary Review
