Libeskind likens contemporary society to another famous story, Jonah and the whale. For Libeskind, we are stuck inside a comfortable condition not wishing to be responsible for our actions. He goes through the different ways in which this condition has been depicted, and treated from the renaisance until the nineteenth century by art and philosophy.

Libeskind looks at the separation of the body and the mind. He cites Galileo Galilei and Ren? Descartes, who separated causality from natural laws. Libeskind believes that while the science and medicine has taught us rational thinking, rational thinking leads us to forget about humans and communities.

The concluding 13 minutes of Libeskind’s lecture. He finds most of contemporary architecture misguided. On the other hand, he claims that many architects of his generation are rethinking assumptions, and rethinking the nature of architecture. He quickly displays some of his models and drawings to show how his work tries to deal with the themes of his lecture.

After being introduced, Robert Mangurian presents a brief allegorical performance, in which he examines some cardboard, wood and metal architectural junk displayed next to the podium, eventually sweeping it offstage with a big broom. He proposes to discuss the inherently architectural, illustrating it with his own work and work by others. He also presents personal stories illuminating the relationship between art and architecture.
