Space and Pluralism

Can Contemporary Cities Be Places of Tolerance?

Edited by Stefano Moroni and David Weberman

Stefano Moroni is Associate Professor in Planning at Milan Polytechnic, where he teaches Land use ethics and the law. He is a member of the editorial board of PlanningTheory.
David Weberman is Associate Professor in Philosophy at the Central European University, Budapest.

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.

The book addresses a topic that is intrinsically interdisciplinary. Questions of space are examined from a rich variety of perspectives from urban planning to political philosophy, shedding some light on this shadowy process. Some of the issues addressed include the dichotomies of public and private space, rights and duties regarding the use of space, and conflicts over its allocation. Well-reasoned and lively discussions are offered from the perspective of basic values and rights. The recognition of the specifics of (minority community) identity as an institutional policy is raised in opposition to “abstract distributive accounts of justice” – economic pressures by developers and would-be gentrifiers.

"Spaces and Pluralism could be a useful addition to graduate courses associated with the fields of urban
and global studies. It will generate debate, frustration, and questions over the possibility of increased
tolerance and ultimately pluralism. It is a difficult read but it is definitely worth it." - Journal of Urban Affairs
