In the reality, this author defines the geographic scale as a hierarchy of levels of analysis of the social space, that can be conceived as a encaixante of structures, clarifying, however, that nor all area is a structure. The concept is created from the critical one to the cartographic empiricist and the fenomenolgicos presumptions of the subjective scale of geography humanist, searching to articulate the empirical necessity of space clippings with the allegiance to the paradigm of the historical materialism, that is, of the social relations of production. Other authors as Racine, Raffestin and Rufey in 1983 Also detach the inconvenience of the analogy between the cartographic and geographic scales. For them this problem exists because geography does not make use of a proper concept of scale and adopted the cartographic concept, even so is not evident that this it is appropriate, therefore the cartographic scale states the representation of the space as geometric form, while the geographic scale states the representation of the relations that the societies keep with this geometric representation. Some recurrent questions had appeared: the bibliographical scarcity on the subject; geography does not make use of a proper concept of scale; it has few authors who if worry about the scale as essential a metodolgico problem; the scale as metodolgico problem in geography is difficult and still requires abstraction and reflection effort.
