Phenomenology of Space and the Environment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Phenomenology is a philosophical approach initially developed by Edward Husserl that centers on understanding consciousness and experience. Anthropologists interested in space and the environment have drawn on phenomenology as a way of exploring people's direct experiences of the places they inhabit. This entry outlines key approaches, critiques, and current trends. It draws attention to studies of movement and politics that are generating new possibilities in the anthropological understanding of space and the environment.
