Geography has a central part to play in the ultimate purpose of all intellectual endeavour - the heightening of human consciousness.' The behavioural environment model, as developed by William Kirk, emphasises the importance of perception in human geography, the significance of subjective experience and the potential of man as an active agent in the environment. This book examines the concept of the behavioural environment. Drawing on Kirk's work, the book reflects on the original formulation of the theory, applies its cardinal principles in a wide variety of contexts and re-evaluates its cognitive claims in the light of recent debates in philosophy and social theory. The book provides new empirical studies and fresh theoretical perspectives and argues that the behavioural approach is vital to a consistent understanding of individual rights and ecological respect.
