Postgeography is a new concept in humanities describing processes of accelerated ontolotgization of spaciality under Postmodern conditions. Geographic images are seen in this cognitive situation as self-expanding social representations similar to the notion of capital. Procedures of space doubling are a dominant form of sociality’s being in a genetic sense. Life as a social representation might be imagined as autopoiesis of spaciality.
