One of the outcomes of the philosophical and methodological debates in human regional geography over recent decades has been a call for a revived, revised regional geography. The present paper outlines the case for that call, arguing that places matter because they are the contexts within which attitudes are learned and behaviour patterns moulded. The philosophical and practical implications of such an orientation are explored. Guest lecture delivered to the Conference of Irish Geographers, Carysfort, Dublin, February 1985.
