Summary

The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of the City is an outstanding reference source to this exciting subject and the first collection of its kind. Comprising forty chapters by a team of international contributors, the Handbook is divided into clear sections addressing the following central topics:

  • Historical Philosophical Engagements with Cities
  • Contemporary Philosophical Theories of the City
  • Urban Aesthetics
  • Urban Politics
  • Citizenship
  • The Creation/Destruction of Place.

The concluding section contains interviews with philosophers discussing their engagement with students and the wider public on issues and initiatives including experiential learning, civic and community engagement, disability rights and access, environmental degradation, professional diversity, social justice, and globalization.

Essential reading for students and researchers in environmental philosophy, aesthetics and political philosophy, The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of the City is also a useful resource for those in related fields, such as geography, urban studies, sociology, and political science.
