Earth Ways: Framing Geographical Meanings

Backhaus, Gary

What is the connection between anthropology, philosophy, and geography? How does one locate the connection? Can a juncture between these disciplines also accommodate history, sociology and other applied and theoretical forms of knowledge? In Earth Ways: Framing Geographical Meanings, editors Gary Backhaus and John Murungi challenge their contributors to find the location that would enable them to bridge their "home disciplines" to philosophical and geographical thought. This represents no easy task. Essayists are charged with building a set of conceptual bridges and what emerges is a unique co-joined topography; sets of ideas united by a painstaking and rigorous interdisciplinary framework. Earth Ways is a salient rendering of interdisciplinary thought in contemporary humanities and social sciences scholarship.
