Description - Envisioning Human Geographies by

This work offers a series of personal "visions" for the future of human geography. Each contributor develops a thematic argument - around a structured framework - which he or she feels should shape future human geographies. The structure stems from four broad concerns: postition; knowledge; nature; and space. Position refers to the location of the discipline. Knowledge refers more to the character of human geographical thought. Nature and space address the two fundamental sites for claims about the intellectual distinctiveness of human geography. The introduction of the book pulls the individual contributions together through a discussion of these four central concerns and the conclusion reflects upon the resonance and tensions between the different visions set out by the contributors.
