Landscape theories

a brief introduction

Olaf Kühne

In the past decades, the discussion about theoretical approaches to the topic of 'landscape' has increased. This book presents the currently discussed theoretical approaches to landscape and shows its potentials and limits. The theoretical approaches are discussed on the basis of current questions, such as socialisation and the hybridisation of landscape, and combined with empirical results. This is followed by a discussion of the landscape policy operationalisation of theoretical considerations and empirical findings.Contents• Currently Discussed Theoretical Perspectives On Landscape• AestheticApproaches to Landscape• The Differentiated Socialization of Landscape• Power and Landscape: From Political Worldviews and Critical Landscape Research• Current Issues in Social Science Landscape Research: Theoretical ClassificationsAudienceGeographers, sociologists, landscape architects, landscape planners, regional planners, ethnologists, archeologistsAuthorDr. Dr. Olaf Kühne studied geography, modern history, economics and geology at Saarland University and received his doctorate degrees in geography and sociology from Saarland University and Hagen University.
