Gaston Bachelard: The Poetics of Space (1957–) [FR, DE, EN, ES, IT, PT-BR, RO, RU]

8 May 2014, dusan

Since its first publication in 1957, French philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s Poetics of Space remains one of the most appealing and lyrical explorations of home. Bachelard takes us on a journey, from cellar to attic, to show how our perceptions of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams.
