Encountering Contradictions

Encountering Contradictions

(p.152) Six Encountering Contradictions
Cities in the Urban Age

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

In this chapter, I begin by reviewing the argument of the book and reflecting on the interactions among these various contradictions. I then discuss how living amid contradictions poses unavoidable moral concerns, arguing that although people can opt to ignore the injustices that result from them, to live a moral life, they must be engaged. We experience the city not just as depersonalized functional relationships but as moral agents with empathy and respect for others.

Keywords:   contradictions, experiencing the city, moral engagement
