History & Geography are cousins, right? Today I wondered about this : To study your field & problems : use History or Geography?
This is exactly the kind of stupid question I like to play with – sorry.
First you have to define what the problem is. You have ten minutes.
If you use History‘s tools, you will find elements, predictions (“where does it go?”), understandings from “where does it come from”, time (“when”)…
If you use Geography‘s tools, you’ll find things about the “wheres” : territories, movements, possibilities linked to them…
Oh! Wait a second!
What about other disciplines? Topology? Architecture? Literature? Of course, Psychology or Sociology – but one don’t need an article to think about it…
Inappropriate disciplines to study a problem, here it is.
Take your brain, pick up a random tool. Inappropriately dig in your problem. Find a surprising solution to it. Bingo.
