Theory of space. Foundational texts from philosophy and the cultural sciences
This book was inspired by the "spatial turn" in the 1980s which has been implemented, according to the editors, especially in geography, sociology, and aesthetics. They want to provide classical founational texts on this topic. The texts are subdivided under the following headings: physics and metaphysics of space (R. Decartes, G.W. Leibniz, I. Kant, J.J. von Uexküll, A. Einstein); phenomenology of space (K. Lewin, M. Heidegger, E. Husserl, G. Bachelard, M. Merleau-Ponty); corporeal, technical, and medial spaces (J. Lacan, A. Leroi-Gourhan, L. Irigarey, P. Virilio, V. Flusser); social space (G. Simmel, M. Foucault, H. Lefebre, M. de Certeau, P. Bourdieu); political-geographical space (F. Ratzel, F. Braudel, C. Schmitt, H. Arendt, G. Deleuze and F. Guattari); aesthetical space (A. Schmarsow, E. Cassirer, M. Herrmann, E. Rohmer, J. Lotman).
