Sophisticated Geographies

Keywords: theoretically sophisticated geographies, postcolonial apology, morality, ethics


This paper offers a reflection on the relevance of Nietzsche to recent geographical scholarship. It interrogates what we might mean by theoretically sophisticated geographies. Drawing on a specific context – the postcolonial apology in contemporary Australia – the paper turns to the relevance of Nietzsche’s thinking about morality in charting everyday moral geographies and imagining more ethical futures.
