Review of Metaphysics 51 (2):411-413 (1997)

Abstract

The subtitle of Casey’s work, A Philosophical History, does not denote a merely historiographic enterprise. Although the account of the conceptions of place and space follows a chronological format, from ancient mythological cosmogonies to recent work in continental philosophy, Casey questions primordially the silences, neglects, and absences of this history. Such work takes into focus not only what is gained by successive conceptualizations or what is preserved by a tradition but also, and more importantly, what is lost or forgotten.
