Comprendre existentiellement le tourisme local : le prisme de l'hébergement
This study draws heavily on Heidegger's post turn thinking of dwelling to provide a philosophically informed approach to comprehend host perceptions of tourism. The philosophical premise of dwelling, including (to) poetically dwell and the fourfold, existentially conceptualizes the host community and destination site as a oneness where host perceptions are formed and tourism-created consequences occur. A hermeneutic-phenomenological investigation of a village-based tourism initiative in China demonstrates that guanxi as the manner of dwelling fundamentally frames how a local destination community perceives tourism; in turn, the ongoing tourism development has profoundly influenced the hosts' existential condition (i.e., the fourfold), leading them to unpoetically dwell.
