概要 Peter Gould, a prominent, award-winning geographer who admits to having a low threshold for boredom, offers a collection of essays that reflect his eclectic research and provocative thinking. The topi...s range widely and include the diffusion of AIDS, mental maps, development themes in Africa, postmodernism, and the practices of teaching and writing. Becoming a Geographer expands on Gould's influential ideas and contributions to the field.Gould values the kind of independent thought and scholarship now often frowned upon by university administrators. He has written eighteen books and more than one hundred and sixty articles during his forty-year career in research and higher education -- is "lifetime sabbatical" -- much of it spent teaching at Penn State.A witty, graceful, engaging writer, Gould situates geography in a wider social context. In this book, he brings a fresh perspective to developments in the field including the quantitative and mathematical revolution in geography in the 1960sand 70s. He writes with directness and clarity about the use and misuse of mathematics in illuminating social and geographical reality.His thoughts are especially valuable for what geography offers the world of learning and its capacity to help resolve urgent problems of the day.続きを見る
