"This book is the translation of the second edition of "Einführung in die Geschichte der Architekturtheorie" published in 1987. As a discipline, the theory of architecture is first in the field of literature and art manifests itself by treaties provided by chronicles, pamphlets, fictional texts, even utopian. The scientific tradition dates back to the Treaty "Ten books of architecture" of the engineer-architect Vitruvius, book dedicated to the Emperor Augustus. Italy, France, England and Germany, the literary discourse on architecture until the nineteenth century reflected the echo of the founding text. Hence this statement, this amplification and the decline of vitruvianisme as a cardinal doctrine, subject to questioning of the story. Based on this founding text, the book examines the impact of proposed Vitruvius on the theory of architecture in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and in modern times. Emanating from courses and seminars given at the University of Basel, and therefore for teaching, it offers an overview of the Vitruvian exegesis and aims to establish benchmarks that refer to the reading of texts"--Publisher.
