Abstract:

A new trend is gaining momentum in socio-economic geography, namely a tendency to treat man as a subject of economic activity. In the analysis of economic phenomena the interest in social and human problems is increasing and a strong emphasis is being put on an approach concerned with human beings, their needs, attitudes, behaviour and motives of their activities (Eliot Hurst, 1974; Smith. 1977; Tôrnqvist, 1980; Cox and Golledge eds., 1981).

Though this 'behavioural approach' is quite popular in the west, Polish geographers have only recently begun to be aware of the need for its application (Eliot Hurst. 1978; Taylor. 1980; Kortus, 1981; Domański. 1982; Kukliński, 1982; Kortus and Domański, 1983).

Moreover, since the function of industry itself is now changing, the social and humanistic aspects of research cannot now be ignored by industrial geography.
