There are three distinguishing features of post-modernist thought in geography : First, space-time specificity in social explanation. This implies that post-modernist thought in social science insists on the understanding of “a world which is meaningful for the people who live within it.” Reflexiveness (implying focus on the role of the human agent’s action upon himself or the identity between object and subject) is intrinsic to post-modernist work in the social sciences but this does not imply complete repudiation of the scientific principles of naturalism though the search for universal theories is eschewed. Secondly, post-modernism insists on distancing itself from the totalization (i.e., the concept of the society as a totality following a universal process of historical change irrespective of space context). Post-modernist thought holds that: “The able and flow of human history is not reduced to the marionette movements of a single structural principle, whatever its location, and the differences which make up human geographies are not explained by some central generating mechanism.” Thirdly, post-modern human geography represents a critique of spatial science – it is not a continuation of it but at the same time, it does not represent a break with the past. Post-modern geography focuses on the essential spatiality of social life (rather than the geometry of social behavior.
