Analytical Philosophy and Architecture: Approaching Things from the Other Side
Karan August & Lara Schrijver (Eds.)
Footprint 20 explores the potential role of analytic philosophy in the context of architecture’s typical af nity with continental philosophy over the past thirty years. In the last decades of the twentieth century, philosophy became an almost necessary springboard from which to de ne a work of architecture. Analytic philosophy took a notable backseat to continental philosophy. With this history in mind, this issue of Footprint sought to open the discussion on what might be offered by the less familiar branches of epistemology and logic that are more prevalent and developed in the analytic tradition. The presented writings are situated in the context of a discipline in transformation that seeks a fundamental approach to its own tools, logic, and approaches—the hope being this is a start of a larger conversation in architecture theory that has not yet begun. Contributions by Karan Austust, Lara Schrijver, Tim Gough, Pauline Lefebvre, Borbála Jász, Andrea Alberto Dutto, Sean Pickersgill, fabrio Bacchini, and David Macarthur. Footprint is the ongoing journal from Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands).
