The Experience of Landscape Revised Edition Jay Appleton This classic book, first published by John Wiley and Sons in 1975, proposed and argued a new theoretical approach to landscape aesthetics, including ‘habitat theory’ and ‘prospect-refuge theory’ based on an analysis of research literature, and experience in a wide area of art and science. It sought to apply these theories to the detailed and practical analysis of actual landscapes through an appropriate system of symbolism. In this revised edition, the original text has been retained and the arguments have been updated by the addition of a further chapter which has addressed the problem under six headings. 1) The clarification of the content; 2) Attempts at testing empirically the validity of the theories and the problems attendant on the establishment of ‘proof’; 3) Developments in environmental aesthetics since 1975; 4) Developments in the authors own thinking since 1975; 5) The use and application of the theories; 6) Future directions for research. This up-to-date text provides essential reading for students of Geography, Environmental Psychology and Landscape Architecture.
