Ms Lesser captures the charisma of Kahn: his goofy piano-playing for friends and family and his incessant urge towards artistic creation. Kahn campaigned on the need to build cheap housing as part of his early practice, and illustrated pamphlets for the United States Housing Authority.

Even if he really was scared off from engagement with politics by McCarthyism, as Ms Lesser suggests, his architecture, operating as it did in the real world, in dialogue with planners, contractors and the public, had no such choice. Had Ms Lesser spent more time in this otherwise excellent study comparing Kahn with equally creative architects with less complicated personal lives, she may never have arrived at that theory.
It is just as likely that Kahn was looking at the way in which corporate America had successfully co-opted Modernism and was trying to reassert its humanist purpose.

He based his epistemology on Johann Wolfgang Goethe's world view, in which 'Thinking … is no more and no less an organ of perception than the eye or ear.
Just as the eye perceives colours and the ear sounds, so thinking perceives ideas.
