Wolfgang Welsch
1987, cерия "Acta Humaniora", 344 с.
Книга ведущего немецкого исследователя постмодернизма предлагает скурпулезную реконструкцию истории выражения «постмодерн», развивая единое понятие «постмодерна», актуализируемого в различных сферах. Автор анализирует феномены постмодерна во всей их широте. Рассматривая явления в области литературы, архитектуры и других искусств, исследователь также выносит на обсуждение новые явления в области научной теории, уделяет внимание социологической постановке вопроса, диагностирует изменения в жизненном мире, освещает философское измерение проблемы. Свою позицию Вельш развивает в активном диалоге с позициями других исследователей и теоретиков постмодерна, представляя вниманию читателя панораму концепций Ваттимо, Фуко, Делеза, Деррида, Рорти, Гуиссена, Фостера, Джеймисона и Лиотара. Выходя за пределы своей дисциплины, Вельш охватывает взором современную ему действительность, воссоздавая картину времени, основной характеристикой которого, по Вельшу, становится понятие плюрализма. Версия постмодерна, которую предлагает книга Вельша, проблемно-ориентированная. В книге анализируются также предшественники постмодерна. В конце работы Вельш развивает оригинальную концепцию разума, которая после многих лет критики разума в качестве попытки выхода из нее вводится автором в контекст ситуации постмодерна и раскрывает возможности нового понимания принципов разумности и справедливости.

Lewis D. Hopkins

With increased awareness of the role of plans in shaping urban and suburban landscapes has come increased criticism of planners and the planning profession. Developers, politicians, and citizens alike blame "poor planning" for a host of community ills. But what are plans really supposed to do? How do they work? What problems can they successfully address, and what is beyond their scope? In Urban Development, leading planning scholar Lewis Hopkins tackles these thorny issues as he explains the logic of plans for urban development and justifies prescriptions about when and how to make them. He explores the concepts behind plans, some that are widely accepted but seldom examined, and others that modify conventional wisdom about the use and usefulness of plans. The book: places the role of plans and planners within the complex system of urban development offers examples from the history of plans and planning discusses when plans should be made (and when they should not be made) gives a realistic idea of what can be expected from plans examines ways of gauging the success or failure of plansThe author supports his explanations with graphics, case examples, and hypothetical illustrations that enliven, clarify, and make concrete the discussions of how decisions about plans are and should be made.Urban Development will give all those involved with planning human settlements a more thorough understanding of why and how plans are made, enabling them to make better choices about using and making plans. It is an important contribution that will be essential for students and faculty in planning theory, land use planning, and planning project courses.

This collection attempts to answer the two leading questions of how urban space structures the life of ethnic groups and how ethnic diversity helps to shape urban space. A multi-disciplinary team of authors search the various dimensions of the spatial organization of inter-ethnic relations in cities around the globe. The presentation of material from diverse locations such as Toronto, Philadelphia, Beirut, Jakarta, Tehran, Osaka and Albuquerque presents a unique opportunity for comparative analysis of ethnicity and spatial patterns.

This collection brings together commentaries from a wide range of contemporary disciplines relevant to urban culture, form and society. The book concerns cities in the broadest sense, not just as buildings and spaces, but also as processes and events or sites of occupation, in which meanings are constructed in many ways. The contributors draw on their specialist areas of research to inform current debate, but they also speculate as to how cities will be shaped in the 21st century. Specific areas of research include homeless people's organizations, restoration ecology, post-industrial urban landscapes, cyberspace as a site (or not) of community, post-industrial economics, tourism, cultural planning and the relation of urbanization and bio-physics.

Urban social movements have traditionally been seen as being preoccupied with local issues, and as a result have been marginalized in the wider study of social movements. However, the increasing globalization of cities, the international flows of people, money and policy, have meant that the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global. This collection deals with the transformation of urban movements in these new social, economic and political environments.

Over the last two decades poverty has moved centrestage as an issue within the social sciences. This volume, edited by one of Europe's foremost sociologists, aims to assess the debates surrounding poverty and the responses to it, exploring the ways in which the various socio-political systems and welfarist regimes are being radically transformed. The essays examine how such change is effected by failing welfare programmes and enervating social structures such as family and community which once would have provided mechanisms of social stability.The first part of the book provides reflections on urban poverty; the second part discusses the widely debated idea of an underclass and its meanings in Europe and in the USA, and the final part draws on concrete empirical analyses to examine the patterns of poverty thoughout Western Europe.This volume will be of first-rate importance to all serious students of politics, sociology, geography, public policy, youth and community studies, social policy and American studies.

Urban Sociology [книги]

Urban Sociology is a book replete with factual information about cities and hence a book that will repay the general reader as well as the student. But it is a boot that is "flying under false colors," so to speak. By its title it purports to be a sociology of city communities and of the urban way of life. About ninety per cent of the book is concerned with history, economics, political science, education, and social and public welfare, rather than with sociology.

Urban sociology is a long-established field for research and teaching, yet its importance and even its existence as a specialty are in jeopardy. As increasing numbers of people come to live in urban places and as those remaining on the farm become urban or semiurban in their outlook and behavior, urban sociology is coming to be nearly synonymous with general sociology. What then is the justification, if any, for the continuation of urban sociology as a special subject within sociology? What contribution to man's knowledge can urban sociology make that cannot be made as well by another field? If no answer can be offered and supported, then urban sociologists, urban sociological research, and urban sociology courses perforce merge conceptually with other sociologists and sociologies.

For the first time ever, the classic and contemporary approaches to urban theory have been brought together in an introductory text. From the foundations of Weber and Simmel to the contemporary work of Manuel Castells and the Los Angeles school, Urban Theory and the Urban Experience traces key developments in the idea of the city over more than a century, revealing the often unacknowledged debt that empirical and theoretical perspectives owe each other. Documentary, literary, and cultural sources bring theories to life, while hands-on studies and analysis of alternative ideas, such as "the garden city" and "the new urbanism" round out what is sure to be a key text for years to come.

Describes the cutting edge in travel demand analysis using the latest methods. Emphasizing mathematical modeling techniques, this is the first book to integrate economic concepts of supply and demand equilibrium for urban activities using the concept of traffic equilibrium within transportation networks. Models for optimal transportation are integrated with demand models. Transit travel and goods movement are specifically addressed.

User information is an important source of user-centered innovation. Through the investigation of 47 user-centered case studies collected from leading design consulting firms, this study aims to establish the relationship between user-research and design innovation, to identify the research characteristics and analytic models critical to each innovation situation, and to discuss where, why, and how the research and analysis should be done so that information is gathered efficiently and is available to the team at the right time in the multi-disciplinary design process. This study suggests new approaches to user-research planning, an alternative mental model of design innovation, and a different way of describing user-research in relation to design innovation. The investigation reveals how user-research should be planned, conducted and tailored for each innovation situation.

We investigate how the ability of the government to depart from budget balance and issue debt expands the set of equilibria that can be supported using lump-sum tax-transfer investments. We show how this depends on the restrictions that exist on the capacity to tax and make transfer payments, and what these restrictions imply for the government's ability to issue debt.
Central to our analysis is the definition of solvency for an infinite-lived government in an infinite-lived economy with overlapping generations of finite-lived households. Our specification is derived from the demand for public debt by private agents and the non-negativity constraints on the capital stock and on private consumption by all generations. Under fairly tight restrictions on the government's tax-transfer menu, our solvency constraint implies the conventional solvency constraint.
With unrestricted taxes and transfers Ponzi finance is always possible but "inessential": it does not expand the set of equilibria that can be supported. Ponzi finance can be "essential" when taxes and transfers are restricted. The paper establishes a number of results that demonstrate how the government's ability to issue debt allows restricted tax-transfers schemes to support all equilibria attainable using unrestricted taxes and transfers.
