Thread Name: BS: Rewilding psychogeography.
Subject: RE: BS: Rewilding psychogeography.
I was puzzled by the word "psychogeography".
I read the essay within the linked site, and
came to the opinion that what's being referred
to would better be renamed. (More on that below)
As I understand it, the first two syllables
modify the noun following. But I don't think
the essay's direction is really about that.
The writer seems really to refer to the influence of
geographical features on the human psyche.
Thus, I think the better word for the phenomenon
would be "geopsychology".
