Renegotiation of identities in a 21st century world and a resurgence of older loyalties are calling into question our shared senses of belonging and place. How and where to feel at home, this predicament is being pressed upon us once again. Landscape ecologists, planners, philosophers and theologians come together in At Home in the Future to share their diverse perspectives on this challenging question. Only by means of such open-hearted conversations can we hope, in societies with complex histories and uncertain futures, to achieve a shared understanding of what it will mean to live together with one another and all that there is.
