In every theory and worldview there are subjective and contextual elements. While knowledge is embedded and rooted in socio-spatial contexts, it is also located in the bodies of researchers and travels with them. A travelling theory of knowledge is based on several context-sensitive theories and concepts. This paper discusses Edgar Kant (1902–1978) and his work in the context of its important contribution to early modern urban geography. Kant as a person and his work is seen in the Estonian societal and academic context.
