Abstract:

A review of the literature published since Festinger, Schachter and Backs study 1950 shows that while evidence supports the relationship between proximity and attraction few studies have sought to explain this relationship. Even the concept of functional distance has been neglected. The author suggests a new explanation based on the variables of territoriality and liklihood of common occupancy. Author
