Topophilia by Yi-fu Tuan

Book Description

What are the links between environment and world view? Topophilia, the affective bond between people and place, is the primary theme of this book that examines environmental perceptions and values at different levels: the species, the group, and the individual. Yi-Fu Tuan holds culture and environment and topophilia and environment as distinct in order to show how they mutually contribute to the formation of values. Topophilia examines the search for environment in the city, suburb, countryside, and wilderness from a dialectical perspective, distinguishes different types of environmental experience, and describes their character.

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.
