Cosmos and Hearth by Yi-fu Tuan

Book Description

In a volume that represents the culmination of his life's work in considering the relationship between culture and landscape, eminent scholar Yi-Fu Tuan argues that "cosmos" and "hearth" are two scales that anchor what it means to be fully and happily human. Illustrating this contention with examples from both his native China and his home of the past forty years, the United States, Tuan proposes a revised conception of culture, one thoroughly grounded in one's own society but also embracing curiosity about the world. Optimistic and deeply human, this important volume lays out a path to being "at home in the cosmos."

Religion by Yi-fu Tuan Religion, Hardback (March 2010)

Argues that religion is a perennial quest for safety, certainty, and spiritual elevation that initially was oriented in place and cultural practices - but in its highest reaches, religion moves toward universalism and placelessness. Drawing examples from Christian and Buddhist traditions, this book explores placelessness of religious experience.
