This fundamental and much read book on experienced area and the spatiality of human life is a standard work for philosophers, pedagogues and since the publishing of the second edition at the latest for architects as well. "Bollnows philosophy seeks to establish the ?happier area?. It teaches that a person can establish their human essence in an area, when being capabale of settling without feeling uncomfortable or rooting down without secluding himself and finally learns to trust without giving himself up." Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
Prof. Bollnow (1903-1991) was professor ordinarius for philosophy and pedagogics at the University of Tübingen.
