Abstract

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)
