This chapter reviews some of the recent literature in philosophy of place. Drawing on authors such as Gaston Bachelard, Henri Lefebvre, Pierre Bourdieu, and David Seamon, the chapter deepens the earlier discussion of the nature of knowledge of place, by considering further the affect-infused character of knowledge of place and its connection to salient perception of a material context, and by examining the rootedness of knowledge of place in habitual bodily responses.

Keywords:   knowledge of place, feeling, embodied response, salient perception, Gaston Bachelard, Henri Lefebvre, Pierre Bourdieu, David Seamon
