A discipline of cultural geography, and standing in direct opposition to geographic determinism, possibilism acknowledges the environmental influence over culture; however, possibilists believe that the environmental influence is a small one and the role of human interaction with the environment is the primary force in shaping culture.

People adapt to the different conditions the earth has to offer at different places and that is how different living conditions and habits arise. Tatham, , p. Vidal de la Blache .
