This chapter1 turns to the broader possibilities for an integrated approach to spatialisation and temporalisation by first considering the history of topology as developed in mathematics and in quantum mechanics as a mathematical language of space-time. This takes us from successive spatialisations in geographical space and from geometry to non-Euclidean topological spaces that speak to attempts to diagram power and to depict the multiple dimensions by which the local and social spaces are defined and understood. Supported by the Glossary at the end of this book that covers the italicized terms in this and other chapters, we will look at how topology has been developed.
