Thinking in Place

In an interview about her book Thinking in Place, Carol Becker shared the following thoughts, which also reflect the spirit of our conference and which we would like to share with you:

“The writing is poetic in nature but it is also narrative, philosophical, and theoretical. […] The writing of each piece really reflects the way in which I thought about the place that generated the idea itself. […] The readers would come to understand that the book is also about them, about how they think, and they could then reflect upon their own method of thinking in place as I have reflected on mine. […] And the problems of the 21st century will not be solved by “disciplines” but by ideas and by the willingness of people to extend beyond themselves and their own culture, to recognize themselves in the Other, as part of a species whose evolution should be considered, whose future can be consciously determined.”
