The region has survived the quantitatlive revolution in a rather ambiguous fashion. The older, intuitive, feel for the regional 'ethos' in an area persists alongside taxonomic attempts to minimise intragroup variance and maximise inter-group variance. In addition the literature speaks freely of regional systems and central place systems where both terms often smack of modern euphemisms for the older term 'region'.
