Thrift on Space

"Space" in Theory, Culture and Society (2006)

Approaches to 'Space'
  1. Everything is spacially distributed and has its own geography.  A sense of 'where things are'.
  2. There are no boundaries - spaces are porous.
  3. Every space is in constant motion, nothing is static or stable.
  4. 'Space' exists in many forms - there is no one kind.
Four more ways of thinking of space:
  1. Space as a place where everything comes together; a place of transcendence
  2. A place of metrics-measurement-calculation
  3. A place separated from movement
  4. A place separated from time
