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.
