Space and Pluralism: Can Contemporary Cities be Places of Tolerance?

September 6, 2016

Given a society’s commitment to certain political ideals such as tolerance and equal respect, how can all its members and groups best live together and share a common physical space?

Edited by Stefano Moroni, associate professor at Milan Polytechnic, and David Weberman associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at CEU, this book addresses the social, functional and symbolic dimensions of urban space in today’s world. The twelve essays range from a conceptual framing of the issues to case descriptions, rich with illustrations. Together they provide a thorough exploration of the nature and significance of social space and particular aspects of its distribution in today’s urban spaces and the various factors that are competing for it.
