Reflections on Gottmann's thought: Introduction by the Guest-Editor


  • Calogero Muscarà





The text on these pages is a brief introductory note by the guest-editor on the contents of Part 1 of the present issue. Of the three parts of this special number of Ekistics, the first, entitled "Reflections on Gottmann's thought," contains 13 articles in three groups. In the first group are those that focus on the thought of Jean Gottmann, such as the papers of Robert Harper, John Agnew, Luca Muscarà, Nicolas Prevelakis, Jean-Paul Hubert as well as Pavios Tzermias whose essay concentrates more on the relationships between history and geography. The papers in the next group - contributed by Christian Lagarde, Jean Laponce, Ron Johnston, Yasuo Miyakawa and the present guest editor - refer indirectly to the thinking of Gottmann. Lastly are essays by Paul Claval who highlights some relationships with Gottmann's thought, and Thomas Pierre Fournel who provides an in-depth analysis of new geographical realities.
