Real Cities

Modernity, Space and the Phantasmagorias of City Life

by Pile, Steve

Drawing inspiration from the work of Walter Benjamin, Sigmund Freud, Georg Simmel, this book explores the dream-like and ghost-like experiences of the city, best described as phantasmagorias. These phantasmagorias, while commonplace, are far from self-evident. Real Cities explains how the phantasmagorias of modern city life are experienced and produced.
