Example text

Another approach with strong landscape associations that exerted a forceful presence in the American geography of the middle third of the twentieth century was that of 'sequent occupance' developed by Derwent Whittlesey (1929 pp. 162-6). He envisaged a succession of stages in the human occupance of a landscape, which he compared to the colonisation of land by a plant succession, but he considered that the human occupance was far more intricate. If there was a normal evolutionary cycle it was unlikely to be followed because of the probable intervention of unpredictable extraneous forces.

This framework was different from any prevailing in Europe and the whole approach to landscape was different as a result: When the history of historical geography in the English-speaking world comes to be written, the development of the subject in North America during the middle third of this century will probably be dominated by one name: Carl Ortwin Sauer. The history will be different from that of the subject in Britain during these years. In place of an emphasis on past geographies, albeit with intervening narratives, there will be an emphasis on the cultural landscape, a complex amalgam of physically differentiated earth subjected to alteration and adaptation by culturally differing populations through time, even up to the present.

This was due in no small measure to Carl Sauer's epoch-making 1925 essay on 'The Morphology of Landscape' (Hartshorne 1939: 149, 155). It was largely through this essay that American geographers were introduced to the many currents of German Landschaft geography. - 14 Approaches to Landscape ogy' 's inspiring encapsulation of the landscape concept's multifaceted potentiality can be seen as an outgrowth of the fertile ideas of German romanticism and natural philosophy. Sauer's essay motivated a generation of American geographers and laid the groundwork for Sauer and his colleagues to reevaluate the concept landscape and to formulate new approaches to it.
