Topophilia is a comprehensive, comparative look at "all of the human being´s affective ties with material environment." Yi-Fu Tuan believes that since humans are one of the "dominant" factors controlling the environment, it is of great importance, when considering environmental issues, to take into account humankind´s affinity toward the enviroment.
