About this book

This book continues the exploration of themes either neglected or devalued by others working in the field of philosophy and culture. The authors in this volume consider the domain of travel from the broadest and most diverse of philosophical perspectives, covering everyday topics ranging from commuting and vacation travel to immigration and forced relocation.  Our time in transit, our being in transit, and our time at rest, whether by choice or edict, has always been at issue, always been at play (and has always been in motion, if you will), for our species. The essays collected here explore the possibilities of the material impact of being able to move or stay put, as well as being forced to go or prevented from leaving.

The essays in this anthology explore territories often ignored or overlooked by others and offer readers the possibility to rethink and reconsider travel and place in important ways.” (Ravi Perry, Chair of the Department of Political Science, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA)
