Theory Talks: Theory Talk #20: David Harvey

And what is your position or answer to this challenge / in this debate? I think the principal challenge is to theorize ‘correctly’ the relationship between the territoriality of political power and the spatiality of capital accumulation. To clarify that statement, one has to inquire into the nature of these respective processes. What are, for instance, capital flows? It is capital constantly moving around in space and time and therefore constitutes almost a molecular kind of flow or movement.

I’ve tried to work out for myself how to think about these two logics but I understand that my answers might not necessarily be the correct ones, but I think we should be having a far more serious debate on that question. How did you arrive at where you currently are in IR? What would a student need to become a specialist in IR or understand the world in a global way? Mackinder. Related links.
