Humans may temporarily escape the vagaries of will by contemplation of pure ideas – philosophy – or through aesthetic contemplation – the arts.

Critics of architecture ask what the demand for architectural structure in self and thought tries to shelter us from. The raging physical elements of air and water and fire have their analogues for thought. Do structure and system counter a chaos of unordered experiences? But Kant has argued that there is no unordered experience, since for there to be experience at all there must be architecture and order of thought and selfhood.
