FLUID GEOGRAPHY


The essay of this name in the Reader (pp.133-152) is a kind of sailor's-eye-view of history, taking in technology, migration and cartography.

Fuller develops a generalization of the sailor's dynamic conception of the world (see Navigation).



"Let there be no history which thou shalt not have ready in thy memory; unto the prosecuting of which design, books of cosmography will be very conducible and help thee much."

Rabelais, Gargantua and Pantagruel, 2/8.
