- We can order this
The author discusses how the specificity of a particular location can contribute to the establishment of both a method of formulating human knowledge and the boundaries of what can be known. The text explores the relationship between philosophy, geography and geometry, and analyses the notions of science, empire and colonialism. In response to the contemporary debate on `space of thinking', the author proposes a new concept of `reversal thinking', which leads to an examination of the roles of language and writing from an epistemic point of view.
