One of the cornerstones of the ‘spatial turn’ in Hungary

Throughout the 1980s and 90s, several fields of the social sciences and the humanities witnessed a so-called ‘spatial turn’, i.e. a turn towards space and the discovery of the crucial role of spatiality. This volume is one of the cornerstones of the belated Hungarian reception of this turn, in which Viktor Berger presents the most important authors and their concepts of space and spatiality, primarily from the perspective of sociology. His work is highly valuable for sociologists because it reveals the spatial theories of several non-sociologist authors, but  for geographers as well, as it provides a comprehensive insight into classical and contemporary sociology’s concepts of space.
