Abstract

There is increasing interest in moral aspects of place. This includes the perspectives of moral geographies, inclusion and exclusion, and the moral power of place. After reviewing some of this work, examples are used to elaborate aspects of the normativity of particular kinds of place. These involve places of exclusion (gated settlements and self-contained commercial complexes), and places of care (hospitals and other therapeutic places), set in their broader societal context. The paper raises the question of the capacity of deliberately created places to induce favourable moral outcomes. - (BJ)
