Space/Place Definitions

In Space and Place : The Perspective of Experience, Tuan contends that a space requires a movement from a place to another place. Similarly, a place requires a space to be a place. Hence, the two notions are co-dependent.He also relates space to having temporal insinuations and place as having physical insinuations which further clarifies the difference and codependency of the two concepts.
