Was Fenneman right about regional geography ?

Auteur :
CROWLEY, W.K.

Description :
The true believers of every new school of thought that comes into vogue belittle those who do not tag along. Regional geography has been scorned by many theorists, yet it survives most of the isms claiming to have replaced it. Nevin Fenneman explained the persistence of regional geography in his The Circumference of Geography (1919). Regional geography is an organizing construct for geographical knowledge, and it has naïve appeal non-geographers. However, today's regional geography is more thematic and process-oriented than is classical regional geography. - (SLD)
