9780231073950: Topophilia: A Study of Environmental Perception, Attitudes, and Values

What are the links between environment and world view? Topophilia, the affective bond between people and place, is the primary theme of this book that examines environmental perceptions and values at different levels: the species, the group, and the individual.

Yi-Fu Tuan holds culture and environment and topophilia and environment as distinct in order to show how they mutually contribute to the formation of values. Topophilia examines the search for environment in the city, suburb, countryside, and wilderness from a dialectical perspective, distinguishes different types of environmental experience, and describes their character.

About the Author:

Yi-Fu Tuan is Professor of Geography at the University of Wisconsin.

Review:

The book offers a broad framework for the study of man in his environment. (Choice)

What Professor Tuan has achieved in this volume can properly be called a philosophical reflection on the aesthetics of environments...We are fortunate to have researchers such as Professor Tuan. (Journal of Aesthetics)
