Infrastrukturen der Stadt (German Edition) by Michael Flitner,Julia Lossau,Anna-Lisa Müller

By Michael Flitner,Julia Lossau,Anna-Lisa Müller

Der Band befasst sich mit dem Verhältnis von Stadt und Infrastruktur, von Urbanisierung und Infrastrukturentwicklung. Je nach Konstellation symbolisieren und reproduzieren Infrastrukturen gesellschaftliche Beziehungen, können diese aber auch mit hervorbringen und stabilisieren. Das Verschwinden eines erkenntnistheoretisch eigenständigen Raums jenseits der Stadt führt dazu, dass aus der examine von städtischen Phänomenen zunehmend Erkenntnisse über Merkmale der Gesellschaft insgesamt zu erwarten sind. Die mit diesem Band vorgelegte Auseinandersetzung mit Infrastrukturen der Stadt offenbart damit grundlegende Mechanismen und Funktionsweisen der heutigen Gesellschaft.
