As humans we create and transform the world around us. Our houses, cities, nations and rooms: these places all reflect our thoughts and feelings on what we think reality ought to be. In this text, the geographer Robert Sack argues for places that expand our awareness of reality and open our eyes to the variety and complexity of the world. Simply, A Geographical Guide to the Real and the Good constructs a geographical theory of morality based on the concept of space and place. Using historical and contemporary failures of good and moral places to illustrate his theory, this book should force readers to see our everyday surroundings in a new way.
