Philosophies of Hospitality and Tourism : Giving and Receiving, Paperback / softback Book

Philosophies of Hospitality and Tourism : Giving and Receiving Paperback / softback

Part of the Aspects of Tourism series

Paperback / softback


This book introduces readers to philosophies of hospitality and tourism.

It provides insights into classic philosophical concepts and explains how these can inform the actions of tourism stakeholders, practitioners, hosts and tourists.

The volume explores four main areas: the nexus of philosophy with tourism and hospitality; the philosophy of giving in hospitality and tourism; the receiving-end, such as emotional tourist experiences, happiness and overtourism, including the notion of 'gluttony'; and philosophical issues related to tourism development, such as the spirit of places and thanatourism.

The discussion of philanthropy within the context of tourism is a strength of the book and will be important in a post-Covid-19 tourism industry.

The book will be of interest to students, researchers and practitioners in tourism and hospitality.
