Short summary
This article is written from the perspective of phenomenology. Its potential gain for a critical human geography is discussed in contrast to constructivism. The example of atmospheres will illustrate another theoretical conception of space. Atmospheres we feel like a cloud in our sense perception in situations of awareness. Finally there is a close link to the work of Michel Foucault as well as the Critical Theory (Frankfurter Schule).
