Space and Place: The Perspective of Experience

Ön Kapak
U of Minnesota Press, 1977 - 226 sayfa
In the 25 years since its original publication, Space and Place has not only established the discipline of human geography, but it has proven influential in such diverse fields as theater, literature, anthropology, psychology, and theology. Eminent geographer Yi-Fu Tuan considers the ways in which people feel and think about space, how they form attachments to home, neighborhood, and nation, and how feelings about space and place are affected by the sense of time. He suggests that place is security and space is freedom: we are attached to the one and long for the other. Whether he is considering sacred versus "biased" space, mythical space and place, time in experiential space, or cultural attachments to space, Tuan's analysis is thoughtful and insightful.

Sayfa 124 - Ethiop's arm. See on the mountain's southern side, Where the prospect opens wide, Where the evening gilds the tide, How close and small the hedges lie, What streaks of meadows cross the eye!
Sayfa 53 - The machine which at first blush seems a means of isolating man from the great problems of nature, actually plunges him more deeply into them. As for the peasant so for the pilot, dawn and twilight become events of consequence. His essential problems are set him by the mountain, the sea, the wind. Alone before the vast tribunal of the tempestuous sky, the pilot defends his mails and debates on terms of equality with those three elemental divinities.
Sayfa 124 - Hope's deluding glass; As yon summits soft and fair Clad in colours of the air, Which to those who journey near, Barren, brown, and rough appear; Still we tread the same coarse way; The present's still a cloudy day.
Sayfa 83 - In sum, the contribution of etak is not to generate new primary information, but to provide a framework into which the navigator's knowledge of rate, time, geography, and astronomy can be integrated to provide a conveniently expressed and comprehended statement of distance traveled. ... It is a useful and deliberate logical tool for bringing together raw information and converting it into the solution of an essential navigational question: "How far away is our destination?
Sayfa 183 - ... cultural landscapes in that we as human beings become very accustomed to them, and they in turn become meaningful to us, to such a degree that we begin to identify with them. Place then is composed of both culturally created and natural elements, intertwined and inseparable for human identity: [Place] is made up of experiences, mostly fleeting and undramatic, repeated day after day and over the span of years.
