This book describes how and where space can be appreciated for its ecological implications. It identifies various types of space and considers how the term replaces or complements time as an operative critical concept. It also sets the spatial turn in French theory. The chapters in this book present the individual differences among the French theorists while suggesting, an evolution of the concept of space. The French theorists addressed include Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, Jean Baudrillard, Marc Augé, Paul Virilio, Bruno Latour and Etienne Balibar. These theorists are selected due to their common focus and the implications of their work for the future.

Keywords:   space, spatial turn, French theory, Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, Jean Baudrillard, Marc Augé, Paul Virilio, Bruno Latour, Etienne Balibar
