Philosophy of the City


I am currently writing a book under contract with Routledge. The working title is Philosophy of the Wild City: Expanding Political Spaces.

Due to rapid urbanization, the city is becoming the dominant habitat for people while also engulfing non-human habitats. Animals and plants are finding new ways to adapt to the built environment of urban spaces. But what does it mean to regard the city as simultaneously a wild and civil space? This book focuses on what it means to define the ideal city as the opposite of the wild, as well as how to include the wild in the sphere of the political.
