From the Publisher
"Eviatar Zerubavel is one of the most original and versatile scholars in the field of sociology, the kind of man who sees important patterns and relationships where others see only the banalities of everyday life. [Terra Cognita] pulls together history and geography with the sociology of culture, and the result is one that gives new meaning and depth to the notion of discovery."
– David S. Landes, Coolidge Professor Emeritus of History and Economics, Harvard University
“A fascinating, brightly written and cogently argued work on the power of the geographical imagination to discover and fabricate reality…will delight and stimulate all cognitive geographers and students of the world map, and those concerned with the epistemological standing and psychology of exploration and discovery.”
– Yi-Fu Tuan, J.K., University of Wisconsin, Madison
