In geography, the spatial truths one endeavors to recognize are unfolding patterns in the dynamic relations between Homo sapiens and Earth. These patterns give rise to a geographers quest of ever-receding horizons of understanding. This book is a collection of interconnected essays and talks which pursue the pattern of our age, a time of the most profound disjunctions of intellectual and spiritual worldviews since the nova of scientific knowledge.

The author observes an imminent collision between a pair of antithetical certainties, the modern primacy of individual freedom and the traditional primacy of the collective. The author aspires to the reconciliation of antinomies, a meeting of themes, and a collage of philosophically geographical observations rather than a mere patchwork.

His presentation reflects the underlying philosophical tensions inherent in the postmodern worldview. Contents: Foreword- Preamble- Introduction- The Tao of Geography- A Map is Not the Territory: The Virtue of Reality- Geographers Quest- Postmodern American Pop Myths- Beyond Kitsch- The Fourth Paradigm- Lost in Cyberland: The Last Texians- Postface- Appendix: Wanderings- References- Index.
