About this product
- DescriptionHousing is something that is deeply personal to us. It offers us privacy and security and allows us to be intimate with those we are close to. This book considers the nature of privacy but also how we choose to share our dwelling. The book discusses the manner in which we talk about our housing, how it manifests and assuages our anxieties and desires and how it helps us come to terms with loss. Private Dwelling offers a deeply original take on housing. The book proceeds through a series of speculations, using philosophical analysis and critique, personal anecdote, film criticism, social and cultural theory and policy analysis to unpick the subjective nature of housing as a personal place where we can be sure of ourselves.
- Author BiographyPeter King is a pioneer in the area of social philosophy and housing.

He is the author of five previous books, which explore various aspects of housing, including A Social Philosophy of Housing (2003). He is a Reader in Housing and Social Philosophy at the Centre for Comparative Housing Research, De Montfort University.
