Example text

Some commentators have recently identified a distinctive British school in human geography, sometimes called the Manchester School by analogy with the California School, which is briefly discussed in Chapter 7]. Despite its use of geographical terms to name the schools, this typology is actually based on their distinctive concepts and concerns rather than their ‘home bases’. Each school has won adherents in other places, because there are reciprocal, if asymmetrical, influences among them, and because they have some common concerns.

7 Each school has its own distinctive prehistory, its key foundational moments and contributors and its subsequent trajectories. This entire volume is concerned with the development of the RA and this chapter, which is concerned primarily with first-generation work, does not aim to provide an exhaustive account of all seven schools. 1 provides an initial overview of the seven schools. We then expand this by providing brief comments on each approach, elaborate on these comments for the three French schools in order to compare and contrast their approaches (a topic that was especially significant for the first two schools in the 1980s as they struggled, unsuccessfully, for their place in the regulationist sun as at least equals alongside the increasingly dominant Parisian school), and then consider the distinctive contributions of the West German school and the American radicals.

We now explore the Parisians’ ambivalent relation to structural Marxism, which developed a decade or so earlier. It was characterized by its rejection of two influential currents in Marxism: economism and humanism. Economism regards the economy as an autonomous and dynamic system that underpins an epiphenomenal superstructure and determines the class antagonisms that drive historical development. In contrast, humanism explains the genesis and dynamic of social structures in terms of actions by free-willed human subjects and also focuses on human alienation rather than economic class exploitation.
