Thinking Philosophy for Design

I have started ‘mapping’ thoughts from philosophy for design. In what way does Philosophy inform design, tell us about design, and also not tell us about design? When is philosophy not intelligent about design? An essential question for me is: why we are drawn to philosophy when we seek to explain Design? I started investigating insights from as early as Plato/Aristotle, moved to Kant, and continued on to reading some contemporary sociology and philosophy by Vattimo, Herbert Simon, among others. I tried to approach such dense questions, in a strategic way, so that I could connect reoccurring ideas and play around with the evolution of theories. A very messy timeline ensued.
