What sort of a life do we live in a place we call the city? Apart from the fact that a city often becomes a political, economic and cultural center, it introduces challenges that prove formidable not only to planners and governments, but also to the ordinary people who live in it. This course, which will include an actual tour of a section of our metropolis, invites the students to a philosophical reflection on our urban life, drawing from the wealth of writings on the city by thinkers from antiquity to the contemporary age.
|Who should attend||
The course should be of interest to the public in general, but may be particularly useful to people in local government, city planners, architects, environmentalists, travelers or ordinary urban dwellers who are concerned about their environment and conditions of living.
