Chapter 5: Nature as multi-use: neither productivism nor landscape
Open access

This is the second chapter in a section of four chapters discussing different specific binaries set up in relation to the overarching nature-culture binary. This chapter discusses the opposition between productivist and landscape uses of nature, illustrating that both of these in fact delineate themselves from a concept of nature as a lived-in place. Contrary to such descriptions, the chapter also discusses naturalised understandings of lived-in nature areas or working landscapes.
