Hopewell Settlement Patterns, Subsistence, and Symbolic Landscapes

John E. Hancock

University Press of Florida

The chapter gives rise to many points such as the fact that enlightenment-inspired science has given much promotion to subject–object dualism. This has also led to the promotion of the isolated scientist's views of evaluating the world of objects free from preexisting understandings. To understand the Hopewell earthworks we need to treat them as communicative media of Hopewell lifeworld. The chapter stresses the role of architecture and art as a communicative sign for articulating the totality of the lifeworld. Architectural aspects are considered to be the most outstanding modes of extrinsic communicative media.

Keywords:   earthworks, enlightenment, subject–object dualism, Hopewell earthworks, Hopewell earthworks, architecture, art, lifeworld
