Relational thinking challenges human geography by insisting on an open-ended mobile, networked, and actor-centred geographic becoming. The paper discusses the importance of this "relational turn" by positioning it within the lineage of philosophical approaches to space in geography. It highlights some sciences and limits, factors that constrain, structure, and connect space. The paper then offers a moderate relationism by discussing the notion of "phase space".
