Much of the conceptualization of Environment and Behavior studies has been divorced from broader psycho-social knowledge and theory. Propose to integrate concepts of attachment theory and general identity theory in psychoanalysis and social sciences with ideas of spatial or place attachment and identity. Important to recognize that neither attachment nor identity are unitary and entirely cohesive concepts. There are many different forms and degrees of attachment to places (often a function of attachment to people) - e.g. work-place, homeplace, vacation places, place of origin, place of fantasy, etc. And their dynamics modulate over time in conjunction with lifespan experiences and inner developments. Place attachment thus becomes a rich and variable tapestry which reflects core features of an individual's life. Part of that dynamic invests place attachments as a function of cultural commitments, social organization as well as intimate and other meaningful relationships.
