Place making outline
- There is a native spaciousness to the process of making and inhabiting places.
- We are neither above nor at the end of the process of making and inhabiting places; we exist within that process.
- So criticisms that presume simple identities or simple non-spacious inhabitation are wrong.
- The establishment of social grammars is neither arbitrary nor random. Social content has its own processes, initiatives, and inertias. It exists within a process of active appropriation and interpretation.
- This process can be studied by considering Kant's account of temporality and meaning, as well as concepts from Hegel and Nietzsche, among others.
