Abstract

The first edition was published in 1983 and abstracted as 83D/2242. The main structure of the book is based on the three philosophies of positivism, humanism and structuralism in human geography. The 2nd edition has been fully revised and brought up to date. New material has been introduced on topics recently introduced to the geographical literature (eg pragmatism) and extended discussions are provided of recent developments (eg realism, structuration and contextual theory). The major change has been the complete rewriting of the final chapter (conflict and accommodation) to take account of contemporary views on the bringing together of several philosophical approaches. -from Publisher
