Abstract

The aim of this paper is to excavate a latent geographical approach to the question of culture. Specifically, I argue that the culture question has been developed by two schools of geographical thought: an Anthropogeographical School (represented by the traditions of Ratzel and Vidal de la Blache) and a Landscape School (represented by the Berkeley School and new cultural geographers). My purpose for conducting this excavation is not only to illustrate the discipline’s distinct approach to the question of culture, but to make the argument that this tradition holds potential resources for posing the question of culture anew.
