Croatian Geographical Bulletin, Vol.72. No.2. February 2011. -

The aim of this work is to acknowledge the value of clear, distinct definitions of the historical geography field of interest through scientifically founded principles, as well as to define the theoretical concept of historical geography as the fundamental approach to the wider issues of social geography and geography in general. One of the crucial issues of the theoretical discussion of historical geography, since its beginnings as an independent discipline, has been the issue of the unclear position of its subject-matter and contextual ground, and the definition of its limits within the frame of the scientific system of geography in general. Using the comparative approach and theoretical analysis of the historical and geographical aspect of the research, historical-geography factors have been determined, and the interactive relation of those factors has been superposed as a prerequisite for the understanding of the pragmatic space reality, and for the prediction of future relations in the space time continuum. Following the detailed analysis of those issues, the overview of the analysis that has been done so far, and the synthesis of the research results, the general geographical principles have been confirmed, and specific historical-geographical principles have been defined as the integrative connection between the natural and social science system.
