    Sauer is famous for creating the “Berkeley School” of geography, when he taught there in the 1920s. He was opposed to the view, popular at the time, of environmental determinism–that the physical environment is responsible for shaping all human societies and culture. Rather, Sauer said, humans shape their environments and a cultural history grows out of this struggle. He stressed the importance of field studies in geography, and pushed for reform in agricultural and economic sectors.
