This chapter begins with an examination of the meaning of place-identity as interpreted from different viewpoints, including those of ordinary home-dwellers, academics, literary figures and architectural critics and theorists. The marked differences in the meanings attached to spaces and places by both inhabitants and observers lead in turn to a discussion of cultural relativism, as argued by prominent linguists and anthropologists. The chapter discusses the early influence of Martin Heidegger's phenomenology on the idea of place in architectural theory. It outlines the anthropologist Edward Hall's theory of 'proxemics'. The chapter concludes with an overview of the recent studies aimed at reassessing the meaning and significance of their place in philosophical and cultural discourses. It also provides with some current debates on identity formation in the modern world as seen by human geographers.
