Engaging the ‘Geographies of Dissociation’ in the spirit of constructive dialogue and debate, this commentary recognizes its contributions and raises issues and questions relating to the potential and perils of pluralism, value, the material and the symbolic, and uneven geographical development and its politics. Building on the claim that pluralism needs to be a means to greater explanation and understanding rather than an end in and of itself, it argues for a more balanced culturally and politically grounded economic geography.
