    1. تحديثبعد ثلاث سنوات تقريبا من قراءة هذا الكتاب يجب أن أعترف أن إعادة تقييم هذا الكتاب "واجب" لابد منهصحيح أنه كتاب ممل وفي بعض الصفحات يصل لقمة الملل ولكن كل يوم تحدث مواقف ومشاهد تستدعي هذا الكتاب فوراً . تقريبا يوميا لسان حالي يقول "صدق البعد الخفي!"0____________________________كل شخص موج [...]

    2. This is an extraordinary book, full of great insights despite having been first published fifty years ago. It's considered a foundational text in the anthropology of space, the study of "space" as a function of nurture rather than nature, and as something that varies from one culture to another. The author is specifically concerned with what he calls "proxemics," the perception of proximity. Different cultures have different, unstated, rules for what constitute intimate, personal, social, and pu [...]

    3. الثقافة الجمعية تعكس رؤيتنا للعالم و ترسم معالم فنه و عمارتهالدكتور عبدالوهاب المسيري طرح أشكالية التحيز في الفن و العمارة مما يجعل موضوع الكتاب و مضمونه مألوف للغاية و غير ممتع

    4. I saw this book referenced in many works on technology and social organization. Since I like to think about such things, and since I like to know the theoretical background of scholars who generate the sour metal taste of repugnance in my mind, I picked up this book. My first impression was 'this could have been really cutting edge for the turn of the century.'It was published in 1969.The idea of the book, according the the author's preface, was to deal with the following: "Information overload [...]

    5. Spatial relationships, Hall states, have a biological substrate. Space involves territoriality and all the values that go along with that. Referring to the studies of an animal psychologist, Hall writes that “Territoriality…insures the propagation of the species by regulating density. It provides a frame in which things are done—places to learn, places to play, safe places to hide. Thus it co-ordinates the activities of the group and holds the group together. It keeps animals within commun [...]

    6. كتاب مُذهل وممتع ويحملك إلى عالم آخر حيث تتعلم فيه عن مصطلح البروكسيميه وتأثيرها على الإنسان المُعاصر بدأ هذا الكتاب بتبسيط هذا المصطلح وشرحة، وضع لنا فصلاً يتحدث عن الحيوانات وتأثير الإكتضاض والإزدحام فيها وأسباب النفوق الجماعي المُفاجئ رغم وفرة الغذاء في الطبيعة المُحي [...]

    7. I guess it was alright. Had to read most of it for uni, again, only adding it cause it stopped me from reading better stuff haha.

    8. This is one of those books that was probably really ground breaking when it came out but now just kinda feels like, "Eh". Edward Hall discusses "proxemics", or the (science?) of space (not outer space, just like, how we use space). Before I proceed, let me just say that I hate the word "space". It reminds me of a rad leftist magazine at my alum mater, along with a host of other words like "intersectionality" and "oppression". All of which are fine but for some reason I just don't like hearing th [...]

    9. تعيش الكائنات وعلى رأسها الإنسان داخل أبعادٍ ثلاثة تكوّن المحيط المادي وتمكنها الحواس التي تملكها من التعرّف والتفاعل مع هذا المحيط للقيام بالأفعال المختلفة التي تنسج خيوط حياة كل منها , إن كل مجموعة من الكائنات تتفاعل مع المحيط بطريقة تلائم احتياجها وخصائصها وتشترك الكائ [...]

    10. A core scientific reference guide studying the effect of proxemics on modes of behavior and communication in different cultures. While the author diligently compiled a detailed analysis comparing the European nations'- namely the British, German, French and Japanese- behaviors with the Americans in terms of space and time, he synopsized the study for the Arab nation. It would have been effective and valuable to sample some major countries from the Middle East & Africa, since they are ethnica [...]

    11. In this article appeared in the book, there are misconceptions about Arab's behavior, but we agree with him on one point which is involvement. Arabs are more involved with each other unlike Westerners; as they socialize and interact on a daily basis. For example, it is rare to see an Arab sitting alone in a coffee-shop or a restaurant while Westerners don't mind it at all.

    12. هذا كتاب رائع جدا ويستحق القراءه ، يتحدث عن فكرة مهمة جدا وهي الحيز بين البشر إلى اي مدى يحتل الحيز اهمية في حياتنا الاجتماعيه ؟ كيف يجعلنا اقرب او ابعد ؟ وكيف يكون سببا في الامراض الجسديه والاكتئاب ؟ دلل ادوارد هال بتجارب اجريت على الحيوانات وكانت مقنعة الى درجة كبيره مهم جد [...]

    13. كتاب عن ما أسماه الكاتب الادراك الحسي للحيز وتأثيره على الإنسان وهو كتاب للمختصين بدراسة البعد الخفي للأشياء كسلوكيات الإنسان والحيوان عند التصرف في مواقف متعددة ويتعرض الكتاب أيضا لدراسة لغة المكان للإنسان والبعد الآخر للمسافات التي يتخذها البشر بين بعضهم في الأماكن الم [...]

    14. I didn't like the animal studies - but the cultural and space planning discussions towards the end were priceless. "This book emphasizes that virtually everything that man is and does is associated with the experience of space. Hence, there is no alternative to accepting the fact that people reared in different cultures live in different sensory worlds."

    15. Excelente libro de consulta si quieres aprender y hacerte camino hacia el análisis de la proxémica y como el ser humano se mueve, percibe y actúa en el espacio según las diferentes culturas y como sus sentidos toman parte de.

    16. باختصار شديد، قرأت هذا الكتاب 3 مرات، هو يضرب عرض الحائط كل ما نؤمن به كمسلمات ثقافية كتاب رائع جدا، لدرجة أنني لا أستطيع إعارته لأحد مخافةَ ألا أستردّه !

    17. The Hidden Dimension - Culture.Couldn't think culture can have that big of an impact. Many things around have unraveled and make sense, like rural areas of Bihar and UP having highest rate of heart diseases and even PCOD (genetic mutation due to overpopulation as the doctor).

    18. There's plenty to say about this book, written in the 1960's, that is still prevalent and if nothing else prophetic. But the dated nature of observations made in terms of race and sex get in the way of applying concepts to modern city living.However, there are gems of interest in connecting lines of species, between humans and animals (arguably both animals). The way nature responds to the way we are living is robust and dangerous, but we continue to live as though we are not our automobiles, ho [...]

    19. On reading experience: It's clear, structured, easy to read. Each paragraph sandwiched in deductive form, tho the detail is the real treasure. By reading preface you know exactly where to go without having to read much of another chapter. Case of culture being present by comparison and story, made it much easier to understand and remember. Plus, I don't even know this kind of book could make me tickled in some part, i supposed i'd like to hear how germany would say about some content.On content: [...]

    20. Though I have been waiting for a while to read this book, have seen it been sited in different publications they made this book sound interesting and worth reading. Well I went through the book, thought of citing it, well I already did cite it and wish there was some way to take back my steps. I found some parts somehow offensive to my culture and not true, that could be due it was written long time ago and that how things were when the book was written, or it could be that the author's subjecti [...]

    21. 4 starsEdward T. Hall presents a view on space that is intimately related to culture as much as it is related to biology. Hall starts by analysing the way animals perceive spatial distances between themselves and other animals and how they react in situations of overpopulation. Then, the author explains the way humans perceive the distance through our different senses, and how it has affected art and literature.The next chapters focus on the different ways to see spatial organization and human d [...]

    22. أمتعتني قراءة هذا الكتاب، لكنه من النوع الذي يستلزم بعضاّ من التركيز لاستيعابه الفصول الأولى أشعرتني بالملل إلى حدِّ ما؛ فقد كانت تحكي عن تجارب الحيوانات وبيئاتها وتفاعلاتها، ربما كان المقصود أن نربط بين الحيوانات وبين الإنسان في تلك التجارب إلا أن الفصول اللاحقة كانت ممت [...]

    23. Hall, T. (1966) write in "The Arab World" about the differences in social behavior between Arabs and Americans. He chose these differences by using examples about differences of public behaviors in cultures with addition to personal distance, privacy and how people face each other while talking. He also explains how Arabs try to involve themselves in each others life and how they don't like boundaries and then he concludes by stating how cultures have different views about these behaviors.I admi [...]

    24. I'm marking this as "Read" simply because curiously doesn't have a "Lost Interest" or "Gave Up" button. My disinterest in this book stems from a primary assumption that linguistic relativity can extrapolated to understand/explain man's perception of social and personal space. This is a primo example of pop anthropology from the late '60s and its age shows. To be blunt, I dropped this book because I'm pretty sure that the significance of linguistic relativity has been walked back since 1966. Doe [...]

    25. I thoroughly enjoyed The Hidden Dimension, a book that I would call "pop anthropology" from 1966. The author discusses proxemics, or the study of human's perception of space, especially between people. One of the most revealing things to me was Edward T. Hall's basic, off-hand assertion that Americans have an "acultural bias" -- they do not believe there are significant cultural differences between people. This is an enlightening idea in light of Hall's discussion of the proxemic differences bet [...]

    26. An in depth book about the psychology of personal and public spaces. Listed under architecture and psychology. Crosses back and forth into psychology and culture and architecture, relates to city and building design to meet universal and culturally specific requirements for personal and public spaces. Relates psychology to biology and looks at some spatial psychology studies in animals, if I recall. There are some black and white photos in the book. One is of pigeons on a wire, spaced so evenly, [...]

    27. Has a really excellent section pertaining to the differences in socialization around the world regarding spaces and sense of space. One example noted in the book that impacted me was the observation that French cafe seating is extremely intimate and closely packed, while American counterpart's furniture is very spacious - intimating that differences in our socialization that reflect upon how we interact, regard, and value other people. These and many other observations make this a very enjoyable [...]

    28. I haven't read much about anthropology, and I thought this was quite an insightful reading. I hope I can find some more recent studies about the subject. I particularly liked how it shows how much you can learn about yourself just by "mindfully" observing your own behavior, or in other words, how much knowledge you are missing by failing to notice the small things in what you do. One thing I would like to share with those who are interested, Arabic is my native language, and I know there is a wo [...]

    29. Knihu jsem nenašla v českém vydání, ale jako vydání v angličtině, a to z roku 1990. Díky za ulozto. Ja vím, nemá se to, ale sežeňte ji v ČR v knihovně. Potřebovala jsem ji hlavně jako podklad pro přípravu své závěrečné práce, a když po přečtení jsem ji udělala jasné závěry. Zpracovaná je velmi dobře, přímo odkazuje na jiné studie a hlavní autory té doby, kteří se problematikou zaobíraly. Je mi jasné, že pokud bych chtěla najít jakýs takýs český [...]

    30. Avec LA DIMENSION CACHÉE, l'anthropologue Edward T. Hall élabore les fondements de ce qu'il appelle la « proxémique », soit l'étude de la signification de l'espace, laquelle comprend une fort intéressante réflexion sur la signification de la distance interpersonnelle, qu'il divise en quatre catégories, soit la distance intime, la distance personnelle, la distance sociale et la distance publique. Un ouvrage pionnier, majeur, sur l'interprétation des signes et l'importance qu'il faut, da [...]
