Description: University of Lyon, Ecole Normale Supérieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines, Lyon, France. This article intends to explore the conditions of possibility of a pragmatics of space. How practices are constituted through space, how the different ways of practising places are informed by different aspects of spatial dimensions? In order to get into this question, three points are developed. First, we will explicit the usefulness of the notion by proposing a shift from geographies of being in space towards geographies of doing with space. Second, we propose two concepts for a pragmatics of space: the notions of coping with space and space at proof are explored in order to be used as tools for investigation. Finally, the conditions and risks of using a pragmatist approach of space will be acknowledged. Especially, the treatment of a situation as webs of multiples relationships of humans, necessitating a multiple-layered approach, from the recollection of discourse, objects and observation is developed.
