Nice quote from Edward Soja

Here's a nice quote from Edward Soja from the Introduction to his book Thirdspace

"My objective in Thirdspace can be simply stated. It is to encourage you to think differently about the meanings and significance of space and those related concepts that compose and coprise the inherent spatiality of human life: place, location, locality, loandscape, environment, home, city, region, territory, and geography. In encouraging you to think differently, I am not suggesting that you discard your old and familiar ways of thinking about space and spatiality, but rather that you question them in new ways that are aimed at opening up and expanding the scope and critical sensibility of your already established spatial or geographical imaginations."
