What would the world be like if there were no places? Our lives are so place-oriented that we cannot begin to comprehend the loss of locality. Indeed, the space we occupy has much to do with what and who we are. Yet, despite the pervasiveness of place in our everyday lives, philosophers have neglected it.

Since its publication in 1993, Getting Back into Place has been recognized as a pioneering study of the importance of place in people's lives. This edition includes new material that reflects on the development of the field of environmental philosophy and presents Edward S. Casey's current thinking on place and home in our increasingly troubled world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Casey's contributions complement those [of other writers], but they surpass most extant works in their majestic breadth, depth, and scope, offering insightful analyses, careful explications, and creative re-readings of both environmental phenomena and historical texts."

* Environmental Ethics *

"This important and inspiring book is without question the most significant statement on place in our time."

* Theology Today *

"This rich intervention in the current discourse among scholars in the humanities and social sciences asserts the pervasiveness of place in constructing culture and identity."

* World Trade *

"Getting Back into Place offers an even more generous approach to place. According to Casey, we connect with a place merely by being attentive to it, open to its possibilities."

* Environmental History Review *
