|Title:||Nature, water symbols, and the human quest for wholeness||Authors:||Buttimer, Anne||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10741||Date:||1985||Online since:||2019-06-06T08:01:18Z||Abstract:||Few words so commonplace in everyday vocabulary are so elusive to grasp as “the whole”. Like mirrors, notions of what constitutes a “whole picture” may reflect quite as much of what is in the eye of the beholder as they do about reality. Herein lies a profound dilemma. Once a person, group, or culture articulates its own conception of the whole, immediately antennae on other possible wholes become fixed; receptors to foreign insights become restricted to those categories which are familiar and, therefore, limited.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Dordrecht||Start page:||257||End page:||280||Copyright (published version):||1985 Martinus Nijhoff Publishers||Keywords:||Human geography; Symbolism; Water symbolism; Integrity; Existentialism||DOI:||10.1007/978-94-010-9251-7||Other versions:||https://www.amazon.com/Dwelling-Place-Environment-Towards-Phenomenology/dp/9024732824/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Seamon, D., Mugerauer, R.
