Standard histories of geomorphology tend to identify a basic conflict between 2 extremes: 1) timebound, desriptive regional studies of landscape evolution; and 2) timeless analysis of process mechanics. The A. argues that we need to ask a new type of question in a new way: one which gives priority to organizational/compositional relationships rather than to detailed process studies, within the revived context of space-time dynamics. Such a framework suggests a return to conceptual, qualitative methods of research
