Item description for Dwelling, Place, Environment: Toward a Phenomenology of Person and World by David Seamon...
This volume considers how buildings, places, and environments might sustain a more powerful sense of human wholeness, identity, and life. Contributors include philosophers, geographers, architects, and psychologists, who use a phenomenological approach to explore such themes as environmental experience, sense of place, architecture as at-homeness, and environmental design as place making. Chapters in the first section discuss the theoretical horizons of a phenomenology of environment. Following sections consider how the bodily, cultural, and symbolic aspects of architecture, landscape, and place contribute to the human experience of dwelling. The discussion provides innovative approaches to the person-environment relationship not often found in conventional environmental and design professions, as well as to scholars and laypersons who seek a new way to understand and improve people's relationships with natural and built environments.
