After briefly reflecting on the birth ofThe Geographical Tradition, I focus onseveral key issues that snake their way through the observations of my commenta-tors. These include presentism in historiography, the political positioning of thehistorian, and the role of disciplinary location in the production of subject history.I then reflect on the promises and perils of“big history”before moving to somethoughts on the complex interplay between translation and transformation in thecirculation of texts. I close with some observations on the implications for geogra-phers of thinking geographically about geographical knowledge.
