What has happened to Place..? Place given its rightful status renewal..

Whilst reading so much about space for my dissertation this book managed to restore some relevance and credibility for Place and its status alongside space and for that matter time.  The book itself is a full historical look at Place and how it has been written and thought about right back to Plato and Aristotle.  The quotes are enlightening whilst also thoughtful.

“The point is the space that does not take up space, the place that does not take place; it suppresses and replaces the place, it takes the place of the space that it negates and conserves. It spatially negates space. It is the first determination of space.” Derrida
