subject of human geography, repeatability of geographic differentiation, hierarchic principles
In the course of recent five decades three quite different conceptions of human geography consecutively replaced each other: idiographic conception stressingregional synthesis was replaced by spatial science of nomothetic type which in turn was replaced by "purely social" critical science. It seems that heterogeneity of the social-geographic reality and the corresponding determining factors are exceptional to the such an extent that an adequate approach to their study has not been yet found. Complexity of reality is also fostered by unusual type of regularity or repeatability of geographic phenomena: settlements, regions, etc. are different in size but the form of their differentiation is regular, it can be defined as hierarchic in terms of asymmetric relation between frequency and size of geographic phenomena (many minimums - few maximums).
