Cognitive evolution of transport spatiality

Main Article Content

Jonas Matijošius


This study aims to provide an overview of the cognitive evolution of transport related to spatial theorems. The study recalls the various economic theories and criticizes them. It also reviews their methodology and their transport connection, with spatial focus. It can be stated that in the last two hundred years, spatiality appeared in transport related economics modelling, meanwhile sustainability or environmental protection are not in the scope of such models yet. Therefore, new area is to emerge, in which sustainability will be in focus.
