Humanitarian geography is an interdisciplinary science studying the different ways of repre - senting and interpreting the earth in the spaces of human activity, including mental activity. Basic concepts, which operates humanitarian geography is the cultural landscape (ethno-cultural land- scape), the geographical images, regional (spatial) identity, spatial or local myth (mythology). Cognitive scheme of levels of consideration of the geographical factor in the Genesis and dynamics of civilizations (synchrony) in general coincides with the approximate line of the development of scientific ideas about the role and importance of natural (geographical) environment, geographical conditions in the formation and reproduction of civilizations (dia- chrony). In general terms, we can speak of three cognitive levels: geographical determinism, is searched when a strict causal link between geographic conditions and patterns of develop- ment of a particular civilization; geographical possibilism, when approved by the probabilistic relationship between the fan of natural-geographical constraints and opportunities and ways geographical adaptation of a certain civilization in their dynamics; and, finally, geospatialism, in which local civilization and geographical environment seem inextricably parts or elements of civilization-spatial continuity (of the image, or of the historical-geographical image). Issues of geospatial solutions and geospatial imagination compels, obliges you to think the civilizations as the images, to present them a key images, forming a rapidly changing, growing in its value and decreasing civilization-images whose symbolism, semiotics, phe - nomenology may in some degree be based on ontologically understanding the civilizational status of a place, territory, landscape.
