Abstract:

The preliminary analysis on the recent achievement of the western urban geographic research reveals three main aspects of recent changes. Firstly, an obvious former social theory trend has been strengthened. Secondly, the philosophical underpinnings and methodologies of this discipline are becoming pluralistic. And thirdly, both the qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis based on calculation and modeling have made great progress. The emergence of all these changes in the Western urban geography due to the effects of several background facts, such as global trends including globalization, information technology and ecological conception, the rapid economic development based on knowledge and the social transition of the Western countries, and the new characteristics of the urban development and the current philosophical and cultural thoughts in the West.

Key words: urban geographic research, current status and development direction, the West
