Description

Increasingly, we live in an environment of our own making: a ‘world as design’ over the natural world. For more than half of the global population, this environment is also thoroughly urban. But what does a global urban condition mean for the human condition? How does the design of the city and the urban process, in response to the issues and challenges of the Anthropocene, produce new ethical categories, shape new moral identities and relations, and bring about consequences that are also morally significant? In other words, how does the urban shape the ethical—and in what ways? Conversely, how can ethics reveal relations and realities of the urban that often go unnoticed? This book marks the first systematic study of the city through the ethical perspective in the context of the Anthropocene. Six emergent urban conditions are examined, namely, precarity, propinquity, conflict, serendipity, fear and the urban commons.

remarks:

Breaks new ground by considering ethical issues and moral experience from an architectural and urban planning perspective



Not only fills a gap in the existing literature, but also represents a new category of ideas that will become relevant for a wide range of specialists on the built environment, and also for the informed reader



Departs from an environment-centric analysis by interfacing with traditional texts in ethics that privilege the face-to-face encounters



Critiques the different reformulations of the urban (the Smart City; the Resilient City; the Global City; the Ethical City), where despite this multitude of reformulations, neither their respective normative claims, nor the city itself, has yet to be properly figured, or studied, as an aspect of our moral experience
