Space in its place : developing the link in medical geography.
International symposium in medical geography. Charlotte NC (USA), 1992/08/04.
This paper argues that a re-examination of the interrelationship between constructs of place and space is crucial to geography's involvement in the broader endeavour of health research.
Place has re-emerged as nexus of ascribed meaning within contemporary social theory.
Places, however, are related in space, by distance or proximity.
The distinction needs to be made between this orthodox (geometric) view of space and two types of social space: the (experienced) space described by humanist geographers; and the more recent (socio-spatial) conceptualization which is both experienced and (re)produced by societal structures and advocated by social theorists in geography.
