Spectacular City as Synthesis

(p.175) 7 Conclusions
Spectacular Cities

Ipsita Chatterjee

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the broad theoretical stance of the book, which is to understand globalization in its culture economic complexity. In attempting the above, the author has consciously decided to move away from an analytical stance that identifies a process and problem, then studies how and where they operate. Instead, she adopts a dialectical approach, and in doing so, begins with the city as an exemplar of social totality, or reality. She approaches the city as constituting the materiality of globalization, or as revealing the DNA of globalization. The chapter claims that the city in its spectacular synthesis weaves the culture and economy of globalization in a dialectical whole.

Keywords:   dialectics, city, constituted materiality, globalization, culture, economy
