About the Author

Edward S. Casey is Distinguished Professor at Stony Brook University. His previous books include Imagining (IUP, 2nd ed., 2000), Remembering (IUP, 2nd ed., 2000), and The World at a Glance (IUP, 2007).


"Casey's contributions complement those [of other writers], but they surpass most extant works in their majestic breadth, depth, and scope, offering insightful analyses, careful explications, and creative re-readings of both environmental phenomena and historical texts." Environmental Ethics "This important and inspiring book is without question the most significant statement on place in our time." Theology Today "Getting Back into Place offers an even more generous approach to place. According to Casey, we connect with a place merely by being attentive to it, open to its possibilities." Environmental History Review "In descriptions of unprecedented scope, power, and concision, Casey illuminates brilliantly the vexing question crucial for our survival: What is our place in the domain we inhabit and in wilderness Nature?" Bruce Wilshire "This rich intervention in the current discourse among scholars in the humanities and social sciences asserts the pervasiveness of place in constructing culture and identity."
