What does it mean to dwell? Every civilization has a story to tell, according to Anne Buttimer, and exploring those stories brings fresh light to modern ideas about the relationship between humanity and its environment. In Geography and the Human Spirit, Buttimer ranges widely from Plato to Barry Lopez, from the Upanishads to Goethe, taking an interdisciplinary look at the ways in which human beings have turned to natural science, theology, and myth to form visions of the earth as a human habitat.

About the Author:

Anne Buttimer is a professor of geography at University College, Dublin. Yi-Fu Tuan is a professor emeritus of geography at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His many books include Escapism, available from Johns Hopkins.

Review:

"Geography and the Human Spirit is a pilgrimage into the workings of one of geography's most conceptual and yet focused thinkers."

(Landscape Journal)

"Not only represents a comprehensive survey of the history of Western humanism, but also offers a series of important challenges for all geographers to consider."

(Tim Unwin Geographical Journal)

"A vitally creative and imaginative effort to parse meanings associated with geography and the human spirit."

(Professional Geographer)

"This book will be widely recognized as a landmark in geographical scholarship."

(David M. Smith Ecumene)

"This is an original and complex piece of work in the history of geographic and humanistic thought. It brings back the forgotten excitement of intellectual adventure. It is, in short, a tour de force of scholarship."

(Edmunds V. Bunké, University of Delaware)
