Example text

The segmented paradigm also corresponds to an evolution of thought that initially emerged in Western culture and later spread globally. However, holistic understandings of landscape may still be found, on the one hand in non-Western cultures, on the other hand in the world of non-landscape experts, even within Western societies. If and when ever the humanities and sciences are dissecting landscape, even though they are generally perceived as entireties, this must be considered as a fundamental dilemma, one that urgently needs addressing.

With the spread of the English or landscape garden, physical spaces were redesigned based on the principles developed in landscape painting, even in Germany (see Apolinarski, Gailing, Röhring, 2006; Spanier, 2008). The French garden can be seen as a symbol for the rigidly defined society of absolutism in its geometric structure. The English garden, however, is associated with the idea of freedom (Bender, 1982). The English Garden is – in the sense of the Enlightenment – the symbol of “a better future society” (Burckhardt, 2006).

The justification of such a polarity can be difficult to make: No space constructed as landscape is unaffected by humans; for example anthropogenic carbon dioxide impacts even the remotest corners of earth. On the other hand, even objects that are views as being utterly man-made, such as nuclear power plants, are composed of elements of natural origin. To take a constructivist landscape perspective, as was recommended during conference discussions, means identifying and deconstructing discursive dominance in landscape studies and planning.
