The aim of this article is to bring into awareness some major dimensions of interpretation in geographic thought. Several contextual and epistemological dimensions of interpretation are mentioned. Among them are scholars' roles, activities, fields of interest, styles of approaching the subject matter, modes of narrative, and formal modes of argument. It is argued that interpretations arise out of geographers' biographies within their sociospatial context, and are institutionalized in each historical period into several incompatible world views. Each of them consists of different concepts, methodologies, and practices. It is argued also that the discipline as a whole may be enriched by all the perspectives that prove themselves as relatively adequate.
