A Critical Trilogy of Place: Dwelling in/on an Irritated Place
Hung, Ruyu
Environmental Education Research, v23 n5 p615-626 2017
The aim of this paper is to explore the meaning of dwelling in place in terms of the critical trilogy of place. The critical trilogy is a constructively interpretive framework incorporating Greenwood's critical pedagogy of place and Heidegger's philosophical insights of dwelling. The critical trilogy of place, comprising decentralisation, reinhabitation, and regermination, demonstrates the profound meaning of the relationship between human beings and place when applied to a case of land ab/use in Dapu in Taiwan. By exploring the campaign for keeping the place from irritation, the profound meaning of the place is manifested.
