Description

For courses in environmental psychology, design and behaviour, and architecture and behaviour, Environmental Psychology has not only set the pace in the field of study, but has essentially defined the scope of the course. The Fourth Edition retains its use of the ecletic model of human-environment interaction developed in the First Edition. Features: * Each chapter following Chapter 4, in which the ecletic model is introduced, contains a diagram and discussion that assists students in synthesizing material into the eclectic model. New to this edition: * New Chapter 2 discusses the innate and learned relationships to nature-including discussion of landscape preferences, biophilia and biophobia, and historical attitudes concerning the impulse to conquer or commune with nature. * New photos and stories throughout the text provide visual and language based examples. * Updated research citations maintain currency and relevancy.
