    Abstract

    The quarter of a century since the publication of David Livingstone's The Geographical Tradition in 1992 provides an apt moment to reflect on the book's theses, lacunae, and legacies, and to take stock of the ways in which its provocations and reception might instruct the wider project of rendering the discipline's history. In framing this themed intervention, we engage the assertion that contextualisers need contextualising; there exists scope to heighten awareness of the location within time, space and culture from which contextualist historiographies of geography are written. We call attention to the meaning and implications of the particular and situated contextualist methodology mobilised and executed in The Geographical Tradition.
