Special issue : Geomorphic systems

Auteurs :
KENNEDY, B. A.

RENWICK, W. H.

Description :
It is the aim of the present paper to examine some of the views of process, time and change held by 6 major figures who are, at least ostensibly, members of the « dynamic » tradition (Hutton, Lyell, Darwin, Dana, Gilbert and Horton). It is suggested that the work of the 6 reveals two contrasting attitudes to ideas of change and of equilibrium.
