There has been a trend towards aestheticising geographical themes, which in crucial ways repeats humanistic geography's valorisation of poetics, sensuousness and spirituality. Although a philosophical relationship with art is certainly indispensable to human geography, especially as it attempts to break away from its past confinement to the human perspective, this should not impede its equally indispensable relationship to politics. Deleuze, for one, would find deficient any conception of art without consideration of its immanent critical potentials.
