Geography is so much more that just memorizing the name of capitals. It is a whole system for understanding the world. In this lesson you will learn geography's core question, as well as its deeper analytical questions. We will examine where geography fits within the broader conceptualization of human knowledge and look at the different methodologies it uses to study the world.
