Abstract:

This chapter focuses on the trait of landscapes that makes it hard to determine where it starts and where it ends. Finding the edge of landscapes raises a host of questions regarding, among other things, its quantifiability and measurability. This chapter discusses and explores the edge or edges of landscapes as an instance of “liminology.” A liminological study is defined by taking the understanding of something to its limit — to its “limen.” Before the edge of landscapes can be further studied, two extremes must first be considered: the Salient Edge, which stands out and is unambiguous in its presentation, and the Subtle Edge, which is ambiguous in its appearance and is so integral to a given phenomenon as to be barely, if at all, distinguishable from the phenomenon itself.
