Abstract: After generation of strong synthesizing theoreticians in Czech geography the contemporary mainstream employs especially in component geographical disciplines with strong emhasizes in empiricism. The hidden continent of the Czech geography includes applied research in private and public sectors without publishing but highly relevant. On the other hand Czech geographical education is suffering a crisis in basic and secondary schools being reduced into only science, not humanities position. The lack of integrated geographical concept is experienced both in education and research. For this reason new ideas from Anglo-Saxon human geography are accepted, with irony of their French philosophical background – J.Derrida and M.Foucault as actors. The focus in landscapes and regions opens the concept of ESPECT including mono/polycentric relations between economy, society,politics, environment, culture and technology (actants). Geographium is an attempt to constitute geographical ontology, epistemology and metodology both for research and education.
