This paper explores the metaphor of the cave as an attempt to scrutinize the normative notion of theory as a vertical and skyward construction. By highlighting the Enlightenment’s legacy of normalizing theory’s relationship to natural light and incorporating geological time into its construction, it explores the contrary mode of the cavernous theory and its capacity to think beyond monumental time as a unit of architectural duration.
