Eminent geographers and psychologists charmed a packed auditorium with ideas about environmental behaviour and perception. This new frontier was to welcome not only interdisciplinary research, but it was also to offer a common focus of curiosity to geographers of both ‘man-land’ and ‘spatial’ traditions. Why, even the age-old impasse between ‘pure’ and ‘applied’ orientations could be transcended. Some 17 years later in San Antonio, Texas, the same Association hosted sessions on environmental perception. One caught a glimpse of the volume and variety of research which the intervening years had produced and, even more, one noted the drama of a selective migration of ideas back and forth across the Atlantic: Marxist, positivist, phenomenological, and structuralist approaches were juxtaposed, not always too harmoniously.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Routledge||Start page:||253||End page:||276||Copyright (published version):||1989 the Authors||Keywords:||Philosophy; Geographic perceptions; Geographic research; Societal challenges; Communication||Other versions:||https://www.amazon.com/Behavioural-Environment-Reflection-Application-Re-evaluation/dp/0415004543||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Boal, F.W., Livingstone, D.N.
