The Word and the Construction of the Image of the World: A History of the Selected Geographical Concepts

The article presents the selected, relevant geographical concepts existing in the broadly understood literature and geographical writing from the Antiquity to the decline of the Enlightenment. The author attempts to pinpoint the relations between the changing in time conceptual apparatus serving the construction of the world image in the texts conceived of in a given epoch as scientific ones, and the phenomena such as the geographical discoveries, universalization of knowledge, and the diversifying needs of the societies participating in such an experience.
