Read the following paragraph and answer questions from 46to 50:

The  main  problem  of  theory-development  in  geography  is  not  a  failure  to formalize  theory.  It is,  rather,  a  weak  understanding  of  the  role  of  theory  in explanation and a failure to make verbal statements in ways which are ‘explanatory’ in some logically consistent way. This is not to say that these verbal statements are inherently uninteresting.  Indeed they are not.  Consider the following statement by Sauer (1963, 359):

The  whole  task  of  human  geography,  therefore,  is  nothing  less  than comparative  study  of  are ally  localized  cultures  …  But  culture  is the  learned  and conventionalized activity of a group that occupies an area. A culture trait or complex originates at a certain time in a particular locality.  It gains acceptance – that is, is learned by a group – and is communicated outward, or diffuses, until it encounters sufficient resistance, as from unsuitable physical conditions, from alternative traits, or from disparity of culture level.

  This  statement  is  part  a  ‘directive’  for  geographic  study, it  is  part  an explanation  schema  for  understanding  are ally  localized  cultures, it  is  part  a description of what happens. But all three notions are intertwined and it is not clear whether Sauer is proposing a theory or whether he is merely describing an average process. Yet the statement is surely a stimulating one and one that manages to sum up intuitively  in  very  short  space  much  of  the  activity  of  the  human  geographer.  We could well pay more attention to statements of this type and attempt to show how they may function in an explanatory way.
