Question description

During this week, we will move from Plato's introduction of Classical rationalism to Kant's attempt to merge the two scientific lines of rationalism and empiricism. The most critical question explored during this period in regards to meaning had to do with certainty. How can a meaning be assured and how can it be universal to all people, everywhere. This was the purpose behind Kant's Critiques as well as many, many other writings of philosophical and cultural theory.

As you move through the readings and lectures, I would like you to consider this question of universal versus relative knowledge and how it fits into design. Meaning addresses the source for design processes and makes the work we do defensible. This topic addresses expression, taste, interpretation and coherence.

Meaning: The Modern period is defined as moving away from mysticism and using doubt as a tool for acquiring knowledge; defining architecture and it's rules for judgment; body metaphors, introduction of relative priorities; mechanics as the source of meaning; challenging tradition as a source of meaning; taste and the crisis of meaning; application of Cartesian categories to address truth in the arts; move to the imaginative rather than imitative (Classical to Romantic); Kant, meaning and genius

Overview

1. Each student, using the Blackboard Discussion Board feature will write a brief response to that question. The response will include reasoned, thoughtful information.

2. Secondly, each student will post an original question. The material should

be developed from the course material but will connect with ideas to the contemporary practice of

architecture.

3. Finally, each student should respond to a minimum of one peer post.

Grading of the Discussion Board will be applied as follows:

• Posts submitted on time, respectively (1 point)

• Evidence of understanding the base theoretical concepts (up to 4 points)

• Organization and overall writing quality (up to 1 point)
