Humanistic geography is one of the major emerging themes which has recently dominated geographic writing. Anne Buttimer has been one of the leading figures in the rise of humanistic geography, and the research students she collected round her at Clark University in the 1970s constituted something of a a€˜schoola€™ of humanistic geographers. This school developed a significantly new style of geographical inquiry, giving special emphasis to peoplea€™s experience of place, space and environment and often using philosophical and subjective methodology. This collection of essays, first published in 1980, brings together this school and offers insight into philosophical and practical issues concerning the human experience of environments. An extensive range of topics are discussed, and the aim throughout is to weave analytical and critical thought into a more comprehensive understanding of lived experience. This book will be of interest to students of human geography.Such indices of activity space orbits form a good basis for comparing districts ( that is, planned against less-planned), population ... and image formation) and overall satisfaction with residential environment; and (2) an overall social space profile for each district ... The main thrust of this essay, however, is toward the second question: is there any group consistency in experience of residential environment?
