Description: "We humans are geographical beings", writes Robert David Sack, "transforming the earth and making it into a home, and that transformed world affects who we are. Our geographical nature shapes our world and our selves. Being geographical is inescapable -- we do not have to be conscious of it. Yet, realizing that we are geographical increases the effectiveness of our actions, the clarity of our awareness, and the inclusiveness and generosity of our moral concerns. It helps us see more clearly our world and our place in it".

In Homo Geographicus Sack offers nothing less than a philosophy and theory of geography, exploring the empirical and moral implications of our geographical nature. He does so by developing a "relational framework" that maps out how nature, culture, self, and such geographical factors as space, place, home, and world fit together. This framework enables us to see more clearly how we transform the world and how we are affected by that transformation. It also provides possible moral directions for us to pursue so that we can be more responsible for our actions and make better our places, our home, and the earth itself.
