Fraya Frehse: Debatten um die „Eigenlogik“ der Städte: Ein vergleichender Blick auf den aktuellen „Aufruhr“ in der deutschen Stadtsoziologie

Abstract

Debates on the “intrinsic logic” of cities: A comparative gaze at the current “uproar” in German urban sociology
Conceptually embedded in an ethnological and a sociological research career that is evolving in and on urban Brazil, this essay comparatively gazes at a dispute in current German-speaking urban sociology that was explicitly addressed by three articles of the dossier “Uproar in Urban Sociology” (Leviathan 41/2, 2013). The debate concerns a lineage of studies on the Eigenlogik of cities, the assumption that an “intrinsic logic” structures city dwellers’ everyday impression that cities differ from one another. By sociologically contextualizing the three papers, and critically evaluating their possibilities and limitations as to the development of the discussion, I end up arguing that, from a comparative viewpoint, this controversy in German urban sociology is less controversial than it seems.
