1. The many faces of home Thinking about home is a fundamental and universal concept, yet it has multiple associated and layered meanings for different people in a great range of circumstances. It inspires deep emotions and creative expressions that are both heartfelt and more intellectual. As a result, home surprises us by turning out to be a restless, shifting, somewhat elusive notion.

2. The importance of place Place and the organization of life Whatever else it might be, home is a place. This may be a spatial place or a place in the memory or imagination, or a place in all these senses plus more besides—such as an environment that is endowed with spiritual or symbolic significance. A ‘home place’ is also actively fashioned by those who inhabit it or are believed to, including human subjects and vitalizing forces (for example, ancestral or legendary presences). We must, therefore, when thinking about home, be prepared to stretch our concept of place in order

8. The future of home Through a glass darkly if humans have the good sense to protect their planet’s health, learn to live in peace with one another, and choose to share resources and opportunities more equitably.

4. Remembering, imagining, and other mindwork Reviving the past petite madeleine , are delightfully described in the first volume of his monumental novel Remembrance of Things Past .
