The Nature of Space, Paperback / softback Book

The Nature of Space Paperback / softback

Part of the Latin America in Translation series

Paperback / softback

Description

In The Nature of Space, pioneering Afro-Brazilian geographer Milton Santos attends to globalization writ large and how local and global orders intersect in the construction of space.

Santos offers a theory of human space based on relationships between time and ontology.

He argues that when geographers consider the inseparability of time and space, they can then transcend fragmented realities and partial truths without trying to theorize their way around them.

Based on these premises, Santos examines the role of space, which he defines as indissoluble systems of objects and systems of actions in social processes, while providing a geographic contribution to the production of a critical social theory.
