Social processes and the environment. Part III.

Environmental psychology: directions and perspectives

Author: Feimer, N. R., Geller, E. S.
Year: 1983
Type: Book Section


The chapters in this section all adopt a dynamic, transactional perspective concerning the environment and social behavior, with each contributing some unique conceptual insights. The first chapter (chapter 6), Maryann Jacobi and Daniel Stokols, focus on tradition as a pivotal variable in group-environment transactions. They argue that an important component in the relationship between persons and group, and the physical spaces they occupy, is the enviroments social imageability, or perceived social field. In Chapter 7, Mary Gauvain, Irwin Altman, and Hussein Fahim discuss the home as an indicator of social change. In Chapter 8, Sally Shumaker and Ralph Taylor, review a vast amount of literature related to the attachment of people to places and offer models that integrate the varied empirical and their theoretical implications.
