Räumliche Orientierung als sozialgeographischer Grundbegriff L'orientation spatiale en tant que concept de base en géographie sociale

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This essay is not so much concerned with the topic of spatial thought (the physical material world with its consumers), but is much more concerned with its subjects. Subjects are those, who want to attain certain objectives by using spatial information. Spatial information is being treated here as a special form of text. It is generated in order to realize certain effects of spatial orientation in groups of people to whom it is addressed. Consequently, one of the fields in which social geographers work may be defined to be : - analyzing and systemizing the communicative functions of spatial abstractions, - investigating the process of generating spatial abstractions, - rationalizing and perfecting them by grouping new sets of specific combining, synchronizing and addressing strategies
