9780691158334: The Aesthetics of Architecture

Architecture is distinguished from other art forms by its sense of function, its localized quality, its technique, its public and nonpersonal character, and its continuity with the decorative arts. In this important book, Roger Scruton calls for a return to first principles in contemporary architectural theory, contending that the aesthetic of architecture is, in its very essence, an aesthetic of everyday life. Aesthetic understanding is inseparable from a sense of detail and style, from which the appropriate, the expressive, the beautiful, and the proportionate take their meaning. Scruton provides incisive critiques of the romantic, functionalist, and rationalist theories of design, and of the Freudian, Marxist, and semiological approaches to aesthetic value. In a new introduction, Scruton discusses how his ideas have developed since the book's original publication thirty years ago, and he assesses the continuing relevance of his argument for the twenty-first century.

Book Description:

"Compelling and readable. . . . [O]ne not just to read but to return to and to query with persistence and concentration, a book in fact not to borrow and peruse, but to possess and make one's own." --Anthony Savile, Times Literary Supplement

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

"A remarkable contribution that should interest designers, teachers, critics, and historians." --Michael McMordie, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

"This is a highly readable book, valuable in its examination of philosophical concepts in the immediate context of architecture, and valuable in its overview of architecture itself." --Kenneth Nugent, Month

"This is an important book which deserves to be read, not just by students and academics, but by all who take an intelligent interest in architecture." --Peter F. Smith, RIBA Journal

About the Author:

Roger Scruton is a visiting professor at Oxford University, where he is also a Fellow at Blackfriars Hall. His many books include "Art and Imagination", "Sexual Desire", "The Aesthetics of Music", and "A Political Philosophy: Arguments for Conservatism".
