On the paradox of the actor

A.A. Dutto, M.L. Garzoli (2016). Notes on the paradox of the actor. MASKS the Journal, 0, 7-19.

This essay deals with the actor as a paradigm of the contemporary architect rooted in the spirit of the Enlightenment. Some paragraphs of Diderot's book entitled "Paradox of the actor" (1783) are quoted with the aim to trigger a reflection on the ethics of the contemporary architect.
