Libeskind laments the separation of body and mind, and objects to a rationality of the mind that is used to ignore the needs of bodies. This kind of rationality leads to everything that is immoral, starting with the Crystal Palace and ending up in Auschwitz. He accuses both Walt Disney and Robert Venturi of cultivating anesthetic mindlessness. As an alternative, he cites Carl Jung’s Bollingen Tower, built as a remembrance of his ancestors, and rejecting technology as alienating and deadly.
