    The Spatial Turn: Geographical Approaches in the History of Science.Diarmid A. Finnegan - 2008 - Journal of the History of Biology 41 (2):369-388.
    Over the past decade or so a number of historians of science and historical geographers, alert to the situated nature of scientific knowledge production and reception and to the migratory patterns of science on the move, have called for more explicit treatment of the geographies of past scientific knowledge. Closely linked to work in the sociology of scientific knowledge and science studies and connected with a heightened interest in spatiality evident across the humanities and social sciences this 'spatial turn ' (...)
