This paper sketches out the contours of the philosopher G W F Hegel’s geographical thought. After reviewing geographers’ remarks on Hegel, it briefly discusses his social ties with his contemporaries Carl Ritter and Alexander von Humboldt to provide some biographical and intellectual context for the discussion that follows. It then addresses the three primary geographical facets of Hegel’s work, namely his concept of ‘space’, his understanding of physical geography and its relation to race and history, and, finally, territory’s significance in his political philosophy
