The historical one is the more likely to bring about a satisfactory thesis. You can explore the subject in publicatins, to the illustration of yourself and of those sometime reading.

A further step would go to delve unto the psychological functionings of the mind that make such theories be discerned, their contents be appreciated, and what in them true stand in validity before any eyes that so accept. This part I think must remain almost uncharted territory. Surely that psychologist and psychiatrist have worried about sapes, happiness, colour, proportion. However, where the classical theories of proportion are more or less taught and the records then passed to those that study architecture, the psychological aspects of the same I have rarely seen between what we the architects use to read. Hence some -not patent- conclusions if attained would be a worth addition if divulgated enough.
