Sacred Landscapes and Cultural Politics


This title will ship upon release.

This title was first published in 2001. How do people in different cultural worlds think about relationships with nature? How do religious ideas become formative of landscape? How can indigenous traditions inform current cultural debates? This book explores ways in which religious perceptions and cultural values affect our understandings of relationships with nature and our actions in and upon the environment. Drawing on sources in literature, sacred texts, intellectual history, oral traditions, rituals and anthropological practices, the authors speak of realities in and across world regions including Africa, India, Japan and the USA. Unwilling to reduce the power of symbolic, mythic and cosmological thought, the authors highlight the shifting, illusive and perplexing aspects of the relationship between cosmology and landscape. Examining the interpenetration of religious, environmental, and economic realities, this book includes critically positioned voices of Indigenous people on the cultural politics of ecological recovery.
