9780415075619: On Collecting: An Investigation into Collecting in the European Tradition (Collecting Cultures)

On Collecting examines the nature of collecting both in Europe and among people living within the European tradition elsewhere.
Susan Pearce looks at the way we collect and what this tells us about ourselves and our society. She also explores the psychology of collecting: why do we bestow value on certain objects and how does this add meaning to our lives? Do men and women collect differently? How do we use objects to construct our identity?
This book breaks new ground in its analysis of our relationship to the material world.

About the Author:

Susan Pearce is Professor of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester and President of the Museums Association of Great Britain.

Review:

'Pearce successfully documents the continuity of object accumulation in the European pursuit of knowledge and identifies a willingness to speak with things as its central expressive theme.' - International Journal of Heritage Studies

'An impressive achievement ... She writes with authority and ensures that each argument is carefully summarised at the end of each chapter.' - International Journal of Heritage Studies
