The Golden Age of Geography

In this short essay I provide an argument for why I believe Geography's transition from a philosophical subject into a hard science during the Scientific Revolution was the most important move for the field and its advocates.  This essay was written for one of the final courses before obtaining my degree; "History and Nature of Geography" was taught by Dr. John Smith, the archetype (tenure) professor (tweed jacket with reinforced leather elbow patches included). A big thanks to Dr. Smith for being extremely charismatic and histrionic, proving that true passion for a subject is a fire that can never be extinguished.
