Abstract

This paper aims at revealing the various meanings of schools as more than built physical environments from a geographical-phenomenological (or 'geo-phenomenological') perspective. This paper consists of five sections: the first explicates the meaning of 'geo-phenomenology'; the second reveals the meaning of 'environment' and a dialectics of strangeness and intimacy through geo-phenomenological analysis; the third examines the meanings of environment as 'space' and 'place' and the act of naming as the process of constructing meaning between humans and environment; the fourth section attempts to explore the meaning of conceiving school as a particular environment; and the final is the conclusion.
