Abstract

In presenting human geography as a social science, the main concern is with the philosophy of the social sciences and its interpretation for and by human geographers. Having suggested that the three philosophies of positivism, humanism, and structuralism dominate contemporary human geography, subsequent chapters of the book look in turn at the approaches that individually embrace a variety of related viewpoints. They outline the basic characteristics and contributions made to human geography.-J.Sheail
