Editorial Reviews


“Genuinely unique and a signal addition to phenomenological literature … It fills a significant gap, and it does so with eloquence and force.”
— Edward S. Casey, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Stony Brook

“This work marks a highly original contribution to the growing interdisciplinary, phenomenological informed, literature examining the nature of place. However, while drawing on phenomenology, this is by no means standard phenomenologically-informed fare. The terrain covered and position arrived at is far weirder and unsettled.”
— Emotion, Space and Society

“Trigg displays an impressive knowledge of the recent literature on place, memory and the uncanny, and the book is worth the effort for those with an interest in where the concept is currently headed…. Trigg’s emphasis on Merleau-Ponty rather than Heidegger for his phenomenology is a master-stroke: Trigg skillfully deploys Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy to transcend the rigid dichotomy between subject and object and thus manages to reveal uncanniness as both a subjective experience.”
— Los Angeles Review of Books

“(The Memory of Place) will be of interest to researchers in philosophy, cultural studies, architectural theory, geography, and environmental studies. Summing Up: Recommended.”
— Choice

“Trigg takes readers on a subtle and nuanced tour that will intrigue philosophers and psychologists as well as students and researchers involved with any of the disciplines that intersect as ‘place studies’ — including architecture, geography, urban planning, and environmental studies.”
— Book News

“The rewards of (The Memory of Place)…are manifold, and its contribution to the growing literature on the uncanny is undeniable…. My experience of (Trigg’s) book can be characterized in the terms that Trigg himself uses: it is one of ambivalent fascination, at once enthralled and overwhelmed.”
Rain Taxi

“Important for readers of continental philosophy in general, as well as place studies and psychology, Trigg’s work is an indispensable piece not to be overlooked.”
International Journal of Philosophical Studies
