Abstract

VERGARA, Nelson. Knowledge and Surroundings: Notes for an epistemology of territory. Alpha [online]. 2010, n.31, pp.163-174. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012010000200012.

Territory is a reality which manifests itself through a plurality of areas and factions that we will call here perspectives. Two of them seem to us, theoretically, are always correlative: the metaphysical perspective and the epistemological perspective. According to the first, territory is a kind of effective reality, though not always in a concrete fashion, while the second is a notional reality, a concept, a theory. In this essay we approach territory through this second condition, reviewing what we generally understand as epistemic reality; and what territory seems to be to us in regard to an epistemic reality, and we indicate the correlations that appear between both perspectives.

Keywords : Space; territory; spaciality; territoriality.
