And people wonder why this takes so long...

An excerpt from my thesis:

"Cosgrove called this idea “dual ambiguity.” He argued, “the dual ambiguity… purchases landscape’s continued value in a geography which aims to comprehend terrestrial space as both subject and object of human agency, in a geography which finds its aims and methods more closely aligned to those of the humanities and the hermeneutic modes of understanding than with the natural sciences.” This dichotomy provides a connection between the two ideas of cultural landscapes as natural entity and cultural landscapes as a form of perception. The human elements, the natural elements, and their interactions continually progress with time."

I just broke my brain. Again.

I like the word hermeneutic].

That is all.
