Phenomenology, Science and Geography: Spatiality and the Human Sciences (Cambridge Human Geography)


a piece of exceptional originality and significance, to be able to turn into a cornerstone within the philosophy of geography, this e-book asks: what's human technological know-how? Is a really human technological know-how of geography attainable? What notions of spatiality thoroughly describe human spatial adventure and behavior? It units out to reply to those questions via a dialogue of the character of technological know-how within the human sciences, and, particularly, of the position of phenomenology in such inquiry. It criticises validated figuring out of phenomenology in those sciences, and demonstrates how they're integrally with regards to one another. the necessity for a reflective geography to accompany all empirical technological know-how is argued strongly. The dialogue is organised into 4 elements: geography and conventional metaphysics; geography and phenomenology; phenomenology and the query of human technology; and human technological know-how, worldhood and position. the writer attracts upon the works, of Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer and Kockelmans specifically.
