Editorial: Geographie als Geisteswissenschaft - Geographie in den Geisteswissenschaften


Korf, Benedikt; Verne, Julia (2016). Editorial: Geographie als Geisteswissenschaft - Geographie in den Geisteswissenschaften. Geographica Helvetica, 71(4):365-368.

Abstract

This editorial provides the intellectual background for a themed issue that argues for a (re)consideration of human geography as a “Geisteswissenschaft”. Engaging with the question of how a geography anchored in the arts and humantities might look like today, it tries to unsettle the kind of “theory-driven”, post-structuralist research that has come to dominate human geography following the “cultural turn”. In proposing a more thorough engagement with the potential of intrepretative, hermeneutic and phenomenological approaches, we conceptualize a “geisteswissenschaftliche” human geography as a much-needed irritation of the social scientific mainstream.
