David Livingstone's The Geographical Tradition remains a landmark in geographic historiography. This commentary argues that Livingstone contravened his own methodology when discussing geography's spatial science era. After situating the book in its own spatiotemporal context, I suggest elements that could enrich a contemporary account of the spatial science era sensitive to Livingstone's methodological approach.
