Historical and Geographical Images of the Environment: Ontological Characteristics and the Heuristic Potential of Its Use in Historical Science

The article presents the experience of interdisciplinary research at the junction of history, geography, philosophy, sociology, and is dedicated to the disclosure of certain aspects of the phenomenon of geographical images of space. Geographic images are considered not only as a specific socio-historical phenomenon but as a category of terminology that can be actively used in modern scientific research in history. The research of the stated problem is focused on the analysis of the ontological nature of the images and the factors of their generalization, revealing the fundamental features of the geographical images of space, the reasons and levels of subjectification. The problem is raised of specificity of the historical- geographical image of a city in the context of a wide range of spatial myths. In the conclusion the authors underline a significant heuristic potential of the “geographic image” category, the existence of objective prerequisites for its broader integration with the problematic field of history, and the special significance of this category in the reconstruction process in frontier regions and outlying suburbs.
