What are your thoughts on Yi-Fu Tuan? I'm reading "Romantic Geography" right now.

Dr. Tuan is the natural reaction against the heresy which was quantitative geography's claim that if it was not quantifiable it was not geography. He made some good points but I think he goes too far outside of geography for all his work to be considered geography (but they can be thought of as geographical)
