This study aims to explore the concepts of ‘place’ and ‘place-experience’ within the context of Post-phenomenology.
During 70’s, humanistic geographers have introduced ‘phenomenology of place’ as a revolutionary approach toward
place, which has been largely condemned by Marxist, Feminist and Post-Structural critiques through the last three
decades. Accordingly, this study attempts to merge these place-related critiques in order to clarify a new framework
titled ‘Post-phenomenology of place’. ‘Post-phenomenology’, as a novel philosophical trend, is a merged school of
thought, trying to re-read phenomenology based on Post-structuralism, Pragmatism and Materialism. This study after a
theoretical review on the formation of Post-phenomenology, the various aspects of place are discussed in order to clarify
distinctions and paradoxes between phenomenological and Post-phenomenological understandings of place.
Keywords: Phenomenology of place; Post-phenomenology; Post-phenomenology of Place.
