Body, Building, Biography
If we appreciate the way that organisms and environments mutually specify one another at multiple scales, we need to carefully consider the ways biological phenomena generate communities within the surrounding worlds and how, in turn, the emergent individual and social life worlds co-generate the Umwelts within which they belong. This essay reflects on the biological-linguistic basis from which self-organizing and built environments, as well as our own embodied consciousness, emerge. Rather than only investigating the usual phenomenal realm of people operating within buildings and landscapes, the author locates our open character as persons within the interactive and continuous layers of the dynamic unfolding of our micro- and macro-environments.
