    The theoretical refl ections on geographic subjects are fundamental for the advance of the discipline. I propose in this text how time and history are implicit elements and no excessively explicit in human geography research, as well as the utility to have present the historicity to do geography. There is a review of some theoretical and methodological texts that I consider relevant because they has analysed the time from the view of human geography, as well as it proposes a tipology of time concepts (change, evolution, transformation, process) that allows to classify from a new view the empirical works on the distinct parts of the surface of the Earth.
