Abstract

The relationships between the ordering of geographical knowledge, classification as an intellectual enterprise and the place of geography in Enlightenment are considered. Particular consideration is given to the situated position of geography within the two major modern encyclopaedias of the eighteenth century (Chambers and Diderot-d'Alembert). The final section examines connections between encyclopaedism, geography and high modernism in the writing of HG Wells
