Editorial Reviews


"Casey's contributions complement those [of other writers], but they surpass most extant works in their majestic breadth, depth, and scope, offering insightful analyses, careful explications, and creative re-readings of both environmental phenomena and historical texts." —Environmental Ethics

"In descriptions of unprecedented scope, power, and concision, Casey illuminates brilliantly the vexing question crucial for our survival: What is our place in the domain we inhabit and in wilderness Nature?" —Bruce Wilshire

"This important and inspiring book is without question the most significant statement on place in our time." —Theology Today

"This rich intervention in the current discourse among scholars in the humanities and social sciences asserts the pervasiveness of place in constructing culture and identity." —World Trade

"Getting Back into Place offers an even more generous approach to place. According to Casey, we connect with a place merely by being attentive to it, open to its possibilities." —Environmental History Review

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

A nuanced philosophical exploration of the pervasiveness of place in our everyday lives.
