How I made the world : shaping a view of landscape

by Jay Appleton

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
"A great deal has been written in the past twenty-five years on the ways in which we perceive our environment and show our preferences for particular kinds of landscape. But most of this literature is based on consolidated data abstracted from questionnaires and we have almost no detailed case studies showing how habits of environmental perception and landscape taste have developed in single individuals." "In this book Professor Jay Appleton, who has been closely involved with landscape aesthetics for twenty years, attempts an autobiographical study of the evolution of his own habits of perception, and his own emotional responses to particular kinds of landscape. The book traces some of the ways in which attitudes and habits of thought, once established, have influenced, encouraged and constrained the theoretical ideas on landscape which Jay Appleton has developed in his earlier published work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
