This study reviews the aims, methods and trends of settlement geography focusing on the internal structures of settlements in Hungary. The theoretical and methodological development of the discipline streches from morphological predominance to the investigation of the spatial structure of the society. Tibor Mendöl's method, the so-called functional morphology, which essentially tried to find out the relationship between urban functions and morphology, received a main role in this evolutionary process. While pure morphological research has been gradually neglected the attention of Hungarian geographers has turned to urban social questions, mainly as an outcome of the appearance of social geography. Nowadays the problems of the built environment of cities come seldom to the front in Hungarian geography, except in connection with issues of urban renewal. - (JS)
