While Tuan does not ignore human folly, Passing Strange and Wonderful is a celebration of the world around us, our experiences, and our creations. Yi-Fu Tuan is the J. Wright and Vilas professor of geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The aesthetic, he says, can be found reflected on every level of our existence.
Tuan starts by poking around in the philosophical mode, examining the aesthetic expressions of our senses--fragrances, music, visual stimuli, the panoply of sounds--in some detail. Tuan's ruminations--on songlines and eremites, cathedrals and old hometowns, symbolic spaces and the state--are entertaining, and the breadth of his research is dazzling.
Indeed, his legion of facts and anecdotes can come suffocatingly fast and furious.
Tuan is a connoisseur of the arcane tidbit, but synthesis is not his forte. All rights reserved. Convert currency. Add to Basket. Condition: New. Brand New!. Seller Inventory VIB More information about this seller Contact this seller. Never used!.
