Fluvial geomorphology and semiotics : a Wittgensteinian perspective of the divide between human and physical geography

Auteur :
COUPER, P.

Description :
This paper presents a broadly realist, pragmatist view of geography, drawing on the work of Wittgenstein to consider the role of language in the divide between human and physical geography. It is suggested that there may be commonalities between physical and human geography that are hidden by the language we use, and this is illustrated through the application of Peircean semiotics to a hierarchy of geomorphological processes in a river system.
