The Human Experience examines, analyzes and applies theories of humans, environments and human-environment interaction to professional thinking and action. The authors highlight tacit values and assumptions that underlie theory generation and application to professional practice and challenge the reader to answer two questions: how do we "know," and what do we do with our knowledge? Significant critical emphasis is devoted to diversity of humans and environments and the value-perimeter in which professionals think and act.
