Abstract

A Wittgensteinian view of language and meaning is employed in a modified approach to the historiography of geography which steers between socio-economic approaches and the scepticism engendered by post-structuralist theories of language. The contextual history is exemplified by an analysis of 18th century editions of Shakespeare and the approaches they adopted to discussing Shakespeare's knowledge of geography and the natural world.
