Exploring the Notion of "Good" in Sack's Geographic Theory of Morality

Kathleen E. Braden


Robert Sack has challenged fellow geographers to consider a geographic theory of morality based on the idea that the good is real, not relative. Kathleen Braden reviews Sack’s contention that a place can be good or evil, depending on human activities that occur within its boundaries. She discusses an application to the Jerusalem Temple and considers how the action of Jesus to “cleanse” the temple turned it into a place for good. The author speculates about whether the Kingdom of God exists as a true place. Kathleen Braden is a Professor of Geography at Seattle Pacific University and Associate Vice-President of Academic Affairs and Dean of Students.
