Feng shui is a traditional Chinese art of designing the environment that incorporates both rational and irrational (mystical) paradigms. In a unified concept, it connects the physical environment, psychology, social relations and the world of the spiritual. In the beginning, the paper analyses the historical and contemporary fengshui anthropological research. It concludes, that feng shui is viewed by most researchers through the perceptual (rational - logical) perspective of an independent external observer, with descriptions ranging from highly critical (a hindering of development or pseudo-natural science) to more lenient (popular religion, cultural geography or cosmology in practice).
