Against the Grain

Arendt, Human Activity, and the Politics of Place

Peter Cannavò, drawing from Hannah Arendt’s insights into humans’ relationship with nature and the built environment, examines the politics of place in an era of rampant commodification and urban/suburban sprawl. Cannavo points to an overemphasis on development to the detriment of preservation.
