Summary:
"A dwelling is quite clearly a physical entity; it is its structure that keeps us dry, warm and secure. It prevents intrusion by unwanted others and allows us to pursue our own interests in relative peace and quiet. But this physicality also allows us to develop attachments and to form relationships within the boundaries of the dwelling. The physical space we call a house is therefore full of meaning for us.

    schema:reviewBody ""A dwelling is quite clearly a physical entity; it is its structure that keeps us dry, warm and secure. It prevents intrusion by unwanted others and allows us to pursue our own interests in relative peace and quiet. But this physicality also allows us to develop attachments and to form relationships within the boundaries of the dwelling. The physical space we call a house is therefore full of meaning for us. While it can protect, it can also exclude, and one must take care not to exclude all and become isolated, to allow us to flee from responsibility." "A dwelling can be implacable, in that it can work for us or against depending on how we are able to access and use it. This means that we have to learn to accept dwelling as it is and find some accommodation with our surrounding environment. This book develops a new approach to looking at dwelling and how we use it. It explores the manner in which we use housing to exclude others and so protect our privacy. But also it suggests we need to exclude others in order to protect and nurture our loved ones." "The book combines philosophical analysis and film criticism to put forward an innovative and insightful new approach to looking at housing. It draws on the work of thinkers as diverse as Aristotle, Derrida, Kierkegaard, Nussbaum and Scruton and the films of Chaplin, Kiorastami, Tarkovsky, Tarr, Teshigahara and Van Sant to construct a new theoretical approach to housing research."--BOOK JACKET." ;
