Correlations and Culture: A Study in Technique


    PROF. GRIFFITH TAYLOR'S presidential address to Section E (Geography) falls into three divisions. In the first the field of cultural geography is considered, in the second a technique which has been found invaluable in that subject is discussed and illustrated ; finally, suggestions are made as to the aspects of culture which should be included in a general education. The relation of geography to history, anthropology, sociology and philology is emphasized. It is shown that there are common fields of research in which the technique of the 'physical' scientist can be used by the cultural geographer to aid in problems in the 'humanistic' disciplines.
