Dylan Trigg – The Memory of Place

I’ve recently reviewed Dylan Trigg’s ‘The Memory of Place: A Phenomenology of the Uncanny’ for the journal ‘Emotion, Space and Society’. The review is now early online here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1755458612000710

As the review hopefully makes clear, I think this is an excellent book. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in the growing philosophy of place literature (Malpas, Casey et al), corporeally inclined phenomenology, and the emerging literature that takes a slightly weird slant on realism.

If you don’t have a subscription to the journal and would like a pre-proof version of the review, please either comment below or email me.
