Cities provide for people, not just functionally in terms of jobs, obligations and practical pursuits, but also, and above all, emotionally. We like some cities and detest others. Despite shared rationalizations and common modes of administra-tion and design, each city has its own culture. A culture is typically human in that it contains all dimensions of the human, personal condition-from the lowest to the most sublime. Urban culture comprises both economic and civic culture, and is the source of a city's vitality.
Anton C. Zijderveld is professor emeritus of general sociology at Erasmus University, Rotterdam. He taught briefly in the United States and Canada. Among his publications are The Abstract Society, On Cliches, and Reality in a Looking-Glass.
