The Significance of Space. A Comment on the Symposium



In this short comment the author links the divergent approaches to theorizing social spatialization that are part of this special issue as prehension-based processual associations with the need to develop experience-oriented empirical encounters with spatial practices, representations of space (as practices of abstraction) and spaces of representation. The significance of space is therefore primarily noticeable in terms of empirical analyses of concrete communicative actions of everyday life in which social spatialization is understood as an attempt to establish orderings that extend the duration of actual occasions.
