Guy Debord was the leader of the Situationist International in France. In Introduction to a Critique of Urban Geography, he defined psychogeography as "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals."

Debord's text explores in a humorous vein the psychogeographical nature of the work of an eclectic group of artists and writers.
