Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The Revenge of Geography (2013) as discussed by the authors is a novel book about the history of geographies, which is a re-couverte de l'espace (et des lieux) comme catégorie d'analyse pertinente au sein de disciplines connexes.
Abstract: Il y a de cela quelques années, Robert Kaplan remporta un beau succès éditorial avec son livre The Revenge of Geography (2013). Dans le champ des sciences humaines et sociales cette revanche a pris la forme d’un « tournant spatial » (Warf, 2010 ; Warf et Arias, 2009) qui a opéré selon deux modalités : l’influence acquise par des géographes par-delà les limites traditionnelles de leur discipline, et une (re)découverte de l’espace (et des lieux) comme catégorie d’analyse pertinente au sein de disciplines connexes (sociologie ou anthropologie notamment). Plusieurs publications depuis le début des années 2000 ont participé de cette nouvelles orientation de la recherche (Fuller et Löw, 2017 ; Low, 2016 ; Löw, 2015 ; Low et Lawrence-Zúñiga, 2003).
