Closed space and political pratice: Frederick Jackson Turner and Halford Mackinder

Abstract

Turner's frontier thesis and Mackinder's heartland thesis are examples of closed-space thinking. The internal structure of closed-space theories allowed them to promote political conclusions, because the three central terms of those theories (environment, history, recent fundamental charges) were essentially contestable and capable of interpretations which supported particular political arguments.
