  • Through his teaching and especially his writing, P. George influenced generations of schoolchildren, students and academics. After submitting a traditional regional monograph on the Bas-Rhône for his doctoral thesis, he focused his writing
  • on the USSR before broadening out to global themes in human geography, which he interpreted using Marxist insights. Growing disillusionment with communism during the middle of the 1950s led his to leave the party and weakened his intellectual commitment
  • to Marxism. After school teaching and then lecturing at Lille, he taught at the Sorbonne for a quarter of a century, but found the demands of students and workers in 1968 beyond his comprehension. Despite failing sight and general health, he continued

  • Colonel Julian Jackson and his contribution to Geography
  • For Thoreau, penetrating landscape observation provided a point of departure for natural description, and violently paradoxical social commentary. His texts express, question, naturalize, and deploy many presuppositions about geographic order
  • in the landscape. Because he was well informed about the science of his time and about Humboldt and Guyot in particular, and because his texts are rich literary contrivances, geographers may fruitful examine his work.

  • Published work and unpublished correspondence and addresses by Carl O. Sauer are the bases for an examination of the internal coherence and the external sources of his mature viewpoint of social science. This viewpoint was constructed
  • on a distinctive philosophy of science that Sauer defended throughout his career in contradistinction to his frequent criticism of methodological and epistemological debate in geography. His philosophy was influenced significantly by contacts with anthropologists
  • at the University of California, Berkeley, and by his training in an appreciation for the natural sciences.

  • as that of an educator and, like Demangeon, wrote useful texts for students, teachers and pupils at various stages of education. As a professor he was clear and comprehensive, displaying his belief in the unity of geography (physical, regional and cartographic), but he
  • was able to focus on economic geography during his quarter century of teaching at the Sorbonne. His personal interests in transport geography were developed through the work of some of his doctoral students. Perpillou’s fascination for tracing changes
