too vague.

The term “cultural landscape” is extremely vague, perhaps intentionally, but the definitions of the English word “landscape” have expanded dramatically and continue to do so, such that any space touched by humans or not could be considered a landscape.

Should we continue to use this vague term to describe whatever we mean by it and struggle to define it through extensive interpretations and qualifiers, or should we choose to name concepts with words that carry with them the specificity necessary to communicate efficiently?
