La geografia metaforica e l'oscurità naturale delle cose

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] In the essay traces the journey of the Italian geography in the last quarter of a century, ie since the publication in 1985 of The metaphors of the land of Joseph Dematteis. In this span of time a tradition of studies with a strong humanistic system was measured with the epistemological and methodological issues raised in the international arena by the contemporary debate on the crisis of modernity. All this has happened in Italy, through the mediation of the heuristic metaphor of Joseph Dematteis (1985, 1995), the critics of cartographic reason Franco Farinelli (1992, 2003) and the reflections on the limits of representation (Mondada and others, 1992; Farinelli and others, 1994). But above all through the constant confrontation with the Italian company, questioned through important research field experiences.
