La geografia, la “Comunità basata sulla realtà” e la disponibilità a sorprendersi (Italien)
La géographie, la "communauté basée sur la réalité", et ouverture sur les surprises

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this essay the A., professor of geography at the University of California, Los Angeles, offers an in-depth analysis of the scientific status of geography, caught between a desire for impartial certitude and the ubiquitous problems that arise from depending on limited numbers of empirical cases. He invites us to form a geography that is always open to surprise in the face of the world’s inherent complexity rather than hiding behind predefined theoretical armor that hides and misleads more than enlightens. - (NF)
