Augustin Berque geographer and orientalist

From "Mediance" to Places

Augustin Berque is a geographer and Orientalist, and a retired director of studies at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS). His teaching focuses on mesology—that is, the study of “milieus,” in line with Jakob von Uexküll’s Umweltlehre and Watsuji Tetsuro’s fūdoron.

In this interview, he draws on his understanding of Japanese culture to outline his vision of the "milieu".
