Books Info:

Humans in the Land free pdf The concept of cultural landscape was first put to use by the German geographer Friedrich Ratzel in 1895. The American geographer Carl Sauer was probably the first to use the concept in the English language in 1925. In recent years, the concept of cultural landscape has become significant in social and political decision making and in environmental management and preservation.Cultural landscape has also become the object of extensive consideration and discussion within diverse academic disciplines and areas of research: human geography, cultural anthropology, history, archaeology, biology and ecology. Depending on the discipline or area of research, focus is directed towards specific features in the landscape that have come about as a result of human activity. This collection of essays is predicated on the view that considerations regarding the cultural landscape have underlying philosophical presuppositions. The authors propose that the cultural landscape be made the focus of environmental philosophy, ethics and aesthetics.
