Initial post[edit]

write a critique of environmental determinism

This is a fairly limited discussion of the subject (as demonstrated by the citations)and much more needs to be said. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Iain Stuart (talkcontribs) 06:32, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

New Section[edit]

I just added the entire section about China.--PericlesofAthens 00:11, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

How far did the Arabes travel?[edit]

A accept that Arab sailors visited China. They may also have visited Korea and Japan. But the Bering strait? I don't think it was visited by any literate people until well into the Age of Discovery. What is the evidence that the Arabs where there? If the evidence is as bad as the ones Gavin Menzies has about the Chinese sailing around the world I don't think the Arabs ever got that far.

No lead section[edit]

This article could use a lead section that's longer than just one sentence. WP:LEAD guideline states: The lead should be able to stand alone as a concise overview of the article. It should define the topic, establish context, explain why the subject is interesting or notable, and summarize the most important points.. -- œ 04:23, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

What could be included.[edit]

I think alot on the history of science should be included here as it's important in the establishment of geography as a academic discipline.

I'll probably add some of this myself at somepoint but i think stuff is needed with

Voyages of Discovery Geography and the Renaissance Scientific Revolution - work of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Bacon and Newton Geography in the 17th century - Keckermann, Carptenter, Helylyn, Varenius, relationships between physical geography and theology in describing the world - physico-theology, theology and natural philosophy. Works of Humboldt and Ritter Geography in the American Revolution The role of Darwin and his influence on geography Nazism and Geography - Geopolitik Mackinder and Geopolitics Environmentalism Positivism - Quantatative Revolution Marxism in Geography Feminism in Geography Post-modern Geography — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alowishus321 (talkcontribs) 17:47, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
