Nietzsche and "an Architecture of Our Minds"
Alexandre Kostka, Irving Wohlfarth
Getty Research Institute for the History of Art and the Humanities, 1999 - Architecture - 363 pages
Appropriated as an icon by an astonishingly diverse spectrum of people, Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche has been the subject of countless volumes of literature. Until now, though, there has been no in-depth study devoted specifically to Nietzsches thoughts and impact on architecture. In the essays comprising Nietzsche and An Architecture of Our Minds, thirteen eminent scholars from a wide variety of disciplines--including art history, architecture and architecture theory, literature, philosophy, and city planning--address his far-reaching notion of an architecture commensurate with the modern mind. They assess the relationship of Nietzschean philosophy to art and architecture, elucidate frequent misunderstandings, and determine patterns of influence, illuminating an unsurveyed aspect of the philosophy of one of the most profound thinkers of the modern age.
