The Conceptualized Environment

The Conceptualized Environment

(p.205) 7 The Conceptualized Environment
Ancient Egypt

Alan B. Lloyd

Oxford University Press

Societies do not simply live in a physical environment. At least as important, if not more so, is the way in which they conceptualize that environment to make it comprehensible and tractable, which is the focus of this chapter. It discusses the Egyptian conceptualizations of the physical structure of the universe, time, and the inhabitants of the cosmos.

Keywords:   ancient Egyptians, conceptualized environment, conceptual model, universe, cosmos, time
