The Memory of Place · A Phenomenology of the Uncanny
By Dylan Trigg

From the frozen landscapes of the Antarctic to the haunted houses of childhood, the memory of places we experience is fundamental to a sense of self. Drawing on influences as diverse as Merleau-Ponty, Freud, and J. G. Ballard, The Memory of Place charts the memorial landscape that is written into the body and its experience of the world.

“Genuinely unique and a signal addition to phenomenological literature…. It fills a significant gap, and it does so with eloquence and force.”

Edward S. Casey, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Stony Brook
