    Dwelling, Place and Environment: Towards a Phenomenology of Person and World.David Seamon & Robert Mugerauer (eds.) - 1985 - Krieger Pub. Co..
    themes among the essays resurface and resonate. Though our request for essays was broad and open-ended, we found that topics such as seeing, authenticity, interpretation, wholeness, care, and dwelling ran as undercur rents throughout. Our major hope is that each essay plays a part in revealing a larger whole of meaning which says much about a more humane relation ship with places, environments and the earth as our home. Part I. Beginnings and directions At the start, we recognize the tremendous (...)

    Moments of realization: extending Homeworld in British-African Novelist Doris Lessing’s Four-Gated City.David Seamon - forthcoming - Continental Philosophy Review:1-17.
    For Husserl, the homeworld is the tacit, taken-for-granted sphere of experiences, understanding, and situations marking out a world that is comfortable, usual, and “the way things are and should be.” Always, according to Husserl, the homeworld is in some mode of lived mutuality with an alienworld—a world as seen as a realm of difference, atypicality, and otherness. In this article, I draw on British-African novelist Doris Lessing’s 1969 novel, The Four-Gated City, to consider the shifting homeworld of protagonist Martha Quest, (...)

  5. Life Takes Place: Phenomenology, Lifeworlds and Place Making.David Seamon - 2018 - Routledge.
    Life Takes Place argues that, even in our mobile, hypermodern world, human life is impossible without place. Seamon asks the question: why does life take place? He draws on examples of specific places and place experiences to understand place more broadly. Advocating for a holistic way of understanding that he calls "synergistic relationality," Seamon defines places as spatial fields that gather, activate, sustain, identify, and interconnect things, human beings, experiences, meanings, and events. Throughout his phenomenological explication, Seamon recognizes that places (...)

    Revealing Environmental and Place Wholes: Lessons From Christopher Alexander’s Theory of Wholeness & Bill Hillier’s Space Syntax.David Seamon - 2004 - Environmental Philosophy 1 (1):13-33.
    This article examines the conception of the everyday city as presented in the work of architect Christopher Alexander and architectural theorist Bill Hillier. Both thinkers suggest that, in the past, lively urban places arose unself-consciously through the routine daily behaviors of many individual users coming together in supportive space and place. In different ways, both thinkers ask whether, today, a similar sort of vital urban district can be made to happen self-consciouslythrough explicit understanding transformed into design and policy principles. The (...)

    Goethe’s Way of Science as a Phenomenology of Nature.David Seamon - 2005 - Janus Head 8 (1):86-101.
    In this article, I argue that Goethe’s way of science, understood as a phenomenology of nature, might be one valuable means for fostering a deeper sense of responsibility and care for the natural world. By providing a conceptual and lived means to allow the natural world to present itself in a way by which it might speak if it were able, Goethe’s method offers one conceptual and applied means to bypass the reductive accounts of nature typically produced by standard scientific (...)

  14. A Geography of the Lifeworld (Routledge Revivals): Movement, Rest and Encounter.David Seamon - 1979 - Routledge.
    Within the modern Western lifestyle increasing conflict is becoming apparent between that patchwork of isolated points such as the home or the office, which are linked by a mechanical system of transportation and communication devices, and a growing sense of homelessness and isolation. This work, first published in 1979, adopts a phenomenological perspective illustrating that this malaise may have partial roots in the deepening rupture between people and place. Whereas the problems of terrestrial space may have been overcome technologically and (...)

    Merleau-Ponty, Lived Body, and Place: Toward a Phenomenology of Human Situatedness.David Seamon - 2018 - In Annika Schlitte & Thomas Hünefeldt (eds.), Situatedness and Place: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on the Spatio-Temporal Contingency of Human Life. Springer Verlag. pp. 41-66.
    In this chapter, I draw on French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s understanding of perception and corporeal sensibility to consider the significance of human situatedness as expressed via place and place experience. To illustrate how Merleau-Ponty’s conceptual understanding might be applied to real-world place experiences, I draw on two sources of experiential evidence, the first of which is a passage from Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez’s magical-realist novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude. The second source is a set of first-person observations describing (...)
