Der Raum und das Quantitative

Lossau, Julia

Abstract

Situated at the ›great divide‹ between natural science, social science and the humanities, geography, as an academic discipline, traditionally encompasses both qualitative and quantitative dimensions. This paper explores the relations between ›space‹ - the discipline’s central notion -, on the one hand, and dimensions of the quantitative, on the other hand. In order to do so, three spatial representations are discussed which have played an important role in the discipline’s history: (1) landscape, (2) abstract space, and (3) digital space. It is argued that in employing these representations, geographers have tended to background the qualitative aspects of space, thereby consolidating the prevalent assumption that the qualitative and the quantitative represent two different ontological realms.
