The panel was conceived as an attempt to assess the degree to which geography is responding to the issues of the day. In this respect the members have pursued diverse and important lines of thought on the structure of knowledge and its usefulness in problem solving. While everyone may not agree with some of the views presented it is hoped that the challenge of a fresh approach will not go unnoticed by geographers at all levels, whether in the graduate classroom or the elementary grades. Of course the views are those of the panel members and not necessarily those of the Editors of this journal.


The Pennsylvania Geographical Society exists to promote effective geographic teaching, research, and literacy.
