Geography and moral philosophy: Some common ground

Philosophy and Geography 1 (1):7 – 33 (1998)
There is an awakening of interest in links between geography and moral philosophy, or ethics. This paper reviews a range of issues where common ground might be found on this new disciplinary interface. These issues include the historical geography of moralities, the notion of moral geographies, inclusion and exclusion in the context of the bounding of spaces, and the moral significance of distance and proximity, as well as the more familiar concern with social justice. Environmental ethics provides a link with the physical side of the subject. Some suggestions are made as to the possible contribution of geography to the understanding of moral issues.
