Someone from abroad needed this exact book, they told me it cost thousand of dollars, i was so glad for Amazon helping me out with the paperback version, as the hardback version that he lost was way to expensive for him to replace. Thanks again.

HASH(0x91f2e924) out of 5 stars A model text 7 Jan. 2000
By Birger Hjørland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is now out in a third edition (SAGE Publications, 1999). It is a book about geography, but I review it as a model on how an author in one of the (social) sciences can analyze his discipline in a philosophical way. ------ The book presents different philosophical positions such as positivism, marxism, structuralism, realism and poststructuralism in a clear way and describes how such positions have influenced the development of geography. In my opinion such philosophical analysis of (social) sciences are rare, but extremely important. I whish I knew of similar qualified books in all other domains. Such books shows that sciences are built on assumptions, that can be questioned and they help developing critical thinking.

HASH(0x91f2e750) out of 5 stars A thoughtful and thorough look at Ge 29 Oct. 2004
By Andy Freed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book starts each chapter with a nearly intangible discussion of the philosophical aspects of geography for the respective period, then gets into very good summaries of the period, its key players and concepts. Its also sprinkled with great examples of work that illustrates research at the various periods which help cement the concepts.

I expect this will be a useful reference for those time when I forget the difference between structuration theory and realism.
