Review:

The very possibility of appearance – and especially of that fundamental mode of appearance that is the subject of phenomenology – is inextricably bound to place. In Place and Phenomenology Janet Donohoe has assembled a selection of essays by leading figures in the field that offers an excellent introduction to the phenomenological inquiry into place as well as a set of concentrated place-oriented phenomenological studies. The volume will be an important contribution to the growing body of literature on place and to new approaches in phenomenology. (Jeff Malpas, Distinguished Professor, University of Tasmania)

Drawing from some of the greatest classical writers on place, this collection promises to become a modern classic itself. Exploring a range of issues, from sacred spaces to the significance of embodiment, the book bridges phenomenological theory with illuminations of actual, lived places. It is a must-read for everyone interested in exploring the wonder and mystery of how we dwell. (Ingrid Leman Stefanovic, Dean, Faculty of Environment, Simon Fraser University)

This collection will be of great help to anyone who is interested in the meaning and significance of place. Phenomenology can help to understand the role of place in human existence in general, as well as deal with concrete places such as sacred sites or environmental artworks. But this book also shows how ‘limit’ cases – outer space, erased places, buildings – seem to challenge the phenomenological method as such. Together, these thoughtful essays provide a good overview of the full breadth of phenomenological contributions to contemporary environmental philosophy.
(Martin Drenthen, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Radboud University)
