Summary/Abstract: In this paper are identified and analyzed, based on the Kuhn`s comprehension of the scientific revolution and scientific paradigm, the phases of regional geography development and its influences on Serbian regional geography. It is also given an overview of continuity-discontinuity of understanding the region from the paradigm of classical horologism to the paradigm of functionalism – space organization. Separately have been emphasized the problems of understanding the region, regionalization and regionalism in Serbian geography. It is observed that our regional geography is slowly releasing the traditional point of view of the region as an exclusively chorological unit and does(not) accept functional region as an objective reality.
