    In the philosophy of materials a system is needed to recognized and defined how materials are chosen for buildings and fittings and furniture used in those buildings. Schools of architecture (Metaphorical schools not actual ones), and design, list various criteria. These criteria are often artistic-design orientated using what Ruskin once described as probity of style instead of probity of materials.
    Most of the historical definitions of architecture are style or outward appearance based. W R Lethaby in his writings on architecture and furniture makes some very interesting observations; for instance, in Architecture, Mysticism and Myth he talks about the necessities imposed by materials.... and the physical laws in their combination. This is one of the main stays of the Philosophy.
