FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN GEOGRAPHY: A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF ENVIRONMENTS AND THEIR INTERACTIONS, THE (hb)2012
Author: BAOFU
ISBN: 9788130921716
Year: 2012

Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 568
 ABOUT THE TITLE
The radical view in these contemporary approaches to geography can be contrasted with an opposing view in the 19th century known as “environmental determinism,” which refers to the argument that “aspects of physical geography, particularly climate, influenced the psychological mind-set of individuals, which in turn defined the behavior and culture of the society that those individuals formed.” (WK 2011a)

Contrary to these opposing views (and other ones as will be discussed in the book), geography (in relation to both environments and their interactions) is neither possible nor desirable to the extent that the respective ideologues (on different sides) would like us to believe.

Of course, this challenge to these opposing views about geography does not imply that geography is a hopeless field of much sound and fury, or that those fields of study (related to geography) like geology, ecology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, and so on should be dismissed too. Of course, neither of these extreme views is reasonable.

On the contrary, this book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of geography, especially in the dialectic context of environments and their interactions — while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the interventive-reshaping theory of geography).

If successful, this seminal project is to fundamentally change the way that we think about geography, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its “post-human” fate.

In this book:

• Introduction — The Impact of Geography
• Environments and their Uncertainty
• Interactions and their Complexity
• Conclusion — The Future of Geograp

About the Author: Dr Peter Baofu is the author of 53 new theories in 44 books to provide a visionary challenge to conventional wisdom in all fields of knowledge ranging from the social sciences through the formal sciences and the natural sciences to the humanities, with the final aim for a unified theory of everything.
