For example, Robert Sack, in his book Homo Geographicus (1997), provides a theoretical scaffolding for a humanist conception of self and place. In his argument place and self are mutually constitutive. Each may be seen as influenced by forces of nature, society, and culture, but the self as autonomous agent is the core mechanism of place-making and in turn place facilitates and constrains the agent. The place-making actions of individuals and groups transform environments, from the simple act of consumption to the potentially more consequential and larger-scale acts of collective agencies, such as communities, corporations, and governments.
