Evo kako su poznati geografi definisali ovu predivnu nauku Cool

Many famous geographers and non-geographers have attempted to define the discipline in a few short words. The concept of geography has also changed throughout the ages, making a definition for such a dynamic and all-encompassing subject difficult. With the help of Gregg Wassmansdorf, here are some ideas about geography from throughout the ages:

The purpose of geography is to provide "a view of the whole" earth by mapping the location of places. – Ptolemy, 150

Synoptic discipline synthesizing findings of other sciences through the concept of Raum (area or space) – Immanuel Kant, c. 1780

Synthesizing discipline to connect the general with the special through measurement, mapping, and a regional emphasis – Alexander von Humboldt, 1845

Man in society and local variations in environment - Halford Mackinder, 1887

How environment apparently controls human behavior - Ellen Semple, c. 1911

Study of human ecology; adjustment of man to natural surroundings - Harland Barrows, 1923

"The science concerned with the formulation of the laws governing the spatial distribution of certain features on the surface of the earth." - Fred Schaefer, 1953

"To provide accurate, orderly, and rational description and interpretation of the variable character of the earth surface." - Richard Hartshorne, 1959

"Geography is both science and art" - H.C. Darby, 1962

"To understand the earth as the world of man" - J.O.M. Broek, 1965

"Geography is fundamentally the regional or chorological science of the surface of the earth." - Robert E. Dickinson, 1969

"Study of variations in phenomena from place to place." - Holt-Jensen, 1980

"...concerned with the locational or spatial variation in both physical and human phenomena at the earth's surface" - Martin Kenzer, 1989

"Geography is the study of earth as the home of people" - Yi-Fu Tuan, 1991

"Geography is the study of the patterns and processes of human (built) and environmental (natural) landscapes, where landscapes comprise real (objective) and perceived (subjective) space." - Gregg Wassmansdorf, 1995

"As a young man, my fondest dream was to become a geographer. However, while working in the customs office I thought deeply about the matter and concluded it was too difficult a subject. With some reluctance I then turned to physics as a substitute." - Albert Einstein (Attributed to Albert Einstein, this quote was actually written by Duane F. Marble, Professor of Geography at Ohio State University. Professor Marble wrote the quote and put it on his office door at SUNY at Buffalo in response to the cool welcome received by the geography department which had taken over part of the physics building.
