This paper provides a concise summary in Portuguese of Jean Gottmann's geographical theory, emphasizing the psychological motives underlying a community's spatial behavior. According to Gottmann, whethere a territory opens up to the external world or shuts down its borders, it is in the prevailing search for opportunity or, conversely, in the need for security that the ultimate causes are to be found. This explains why Gottmann defines territory a "psychosomatic phenomenon".

Abstract

This paper provides a concise summary in Portuguese of Jean Gottmann's geographical theory, emphasizing the psychological motives underlying a community's spatial behavior. According to Gottmann, whethere a territory opens up to the external world or shuts down its borders, it is in the prevailing search for opportunity or, conversely, in the need for security that the ultimate causes are to be found. This explains why Gottmann defines territory a "psychosomatic phenomenon".
