We have interviewed Benno Werlen during his visit to São Paulo, where he gave a lecture about Spatial Relations and the meaningful construction of geographical realities to the University of São Paulo (USP) Post-Graduation Program in Human Geography. He has received us with great disposition, presented his trajectory and discussed his proposal of an action-centered Geography — establishing a dialog with several authors, such as the Brazilian geographer Milton Santos —, besides developing his critique of contemporary regionalisms and problematizing several valuable topics to the contemporary world.
