This essay begins by taking the syntagma “Architecture and Philosophy” at face value. It spends some time working its way into and around various points of view: the role of conjunctions, the differences between architecture and philosophy, the possibility that the and we have been asked to consider has become naturalized and, therefore, no longer open to question. The essay is short, too short, due to what seems like a global lack of time. However, the essay starts again, at its end, to look at a somewhat different path.
