ABSTRACT

This paper is aimed at making an attempt to research on the philosophical meanings of the city park. The reason why this topic must be dealt with philosophically is, first of all, that we could examine how the philosophical theories of space is applied to the real space of our life. In this process, we would clearly find such a limitation of existing philosophical works of space. Second, we could illuminate a diversity of life spaces through a philosophical work. We have tended to interpret spaces in a specific point of view. In modern times, we have had a very powerful tendency to interpret a space through such physical and economic aspects. But, in the area of human culture, this aspect is just one of the diverse cultural symbols of humans. If we could accept this position, it is natural that our living spaces have to be translated into a broad variety of meanings. Therefore, from this point of view, I intend to demonstrate how the meaning of our concrete living spaces is reilluminated from the perspective of philosophical theories. For this work, I will attempt to examine a distinctive spatiality of a park on the basis of M. Heidegger’s analysis of Dasein and C. Norberg-Schulz’s theory of space and trace a meaning of a park. I will seek for the possibility of how a park affects the existential living of humans in this paper.
