ABSTRACT
For geographical regionalisation, the mental criterion we proposed in 2002 proves to be really helpful in establishing the limits of functional territorial systems. Secondly, it stores their structure and evolutionary features, especially the social (cultural) and behavioural ones. The Carpathians appear as the Romanian primordial archetypal mental space and this is also an unquestionable proof of the formation, evolution, and continuity of the Romanian people in the Carpathians and in the territories neighbouring this mountain chain.
