Non-places and tourism: towards an understanding of travel

The present paper put the non-places theory under scrutiny considering that there is no place in the world that can be termed non-place. This not only defies the principles of anthropology but also borders the boundaries of ethnocentrism. Quite apart from the afore-mentioned limitations we have examined in this paper, a second point of entry can be how an argument like this has been introduced, accepted, adopted and disseminated in anthropology academy and culture studies. Enrooted in the belief as more difficult to read the better and more credible for scholars, popular wisdom accepted non-place theory without any criticism. With more than thousand copies sold in the world, work of Augé should be critically re-considered.
