Rethinking Sustainable Development
Ingrid Leman Stefanovic - Author

This book examines how a phenomenological approach helps move us closer toward safeguarding our common future by evolving a more originative and informed way of thinking about the foundations of sustainable development. Phenomenology, as conceived by Heidegger, enlarges and deepens our ways of thinking about sustainable development and offers a unique methodology of environmental policy development and planning.

A Phenomenology of Nature
David Seamon - Editor

Louise Chawla - Author

"I have a great respect for the way in which Dr. Chawla has been able to address and integrate a diverse set of literatures--environmental psychology, developmental psychology, phenomenology, literature and literary criticism, nature studies, and feminist theory.

Environmental Displacements and Alternative Responses

The book covers Derrida's deconstruction, Foucault's genealogy, Heidegg...(Read More)
 
 
Dwelling, Seeing, and Designing
Dwelling, Seeing, and Designing (February 1993)
Toward a Phenomenological Ecology
David Seamon - Editor

"The rifts Seamon seeks to heal in this anthology are not only between disciplines or between knowledge and action or designing and building. They are, most fundamentally, the rifts between us and all that we see as not us. Without the greater empathy and care in designing, planning, and understanding environments that these essays illustrate, there can be little hope of change or of survival." -- Karen A. Franck, New Jersey Institute of Technology...(Read More)
