Lockean empiricism went through extensive development in the eighteenth century at the hands of several British philosophers, but the most important for our theme was that of David Hume. ”4 Hume, for whom the only knowable world was found inside the brain, was not so certain, for he believed that the sentiments of pleasure that we associate with a beautiful object are cultivated and strengthened by mental habits. He thus responded to Ramsay in 1757 with his own essay, “On the Standard of Taste,” in which he followed the empirical conception of aesthetic judgment, but only to a point.

It was also a concept that – now that it had been reintroduced into architectural theory – would soon be developed in a still more interesting way. Le Roy’s “Successive Sensations” The impetus to this further development was the startling rediscovery of classical Greek architecture during the 1750s. For several centuries, Athens had been under Ottoman control and was therefore relatively The Enlightened Brain: Perrault, Laugier, and Le Roy 37 inaccessible to European travelers. Most of those who had ventured to the city, either on diplomatic missions or as individuals, took no notice of its classical buildings, many of which had been partially embedded in later construction.
