Toward an urban sociology of mega-events. A common curiosity about the changing dynamics, determinants and consequences of the city, which is the urban society's most characteristic form of settlement, has tied together a wide variety of interests.
Sociological concern with urbanization began with sociology itself, because the new discipline was inspired by social relationships and structures first supported by the rapidly growing nineteenth-century industrial cities.
Most early sociologists shared the anti-urban bias of much of the thought and writing of the Victorian era as well as a correspondingly romanticized view of rural life. A key concern at the time was the apparent breakdown of community and social control that resulted from urbanization. These concerns were incorporated in Georg Simmel's The Metropolis and Mental Life, published in , in which he discussed urban life-styles and personality.
Simmel viewed the social organization and culture typifying urban areas as the consequence of large population aggregates. Thus he linked the physical characteristics of the cities with the social characteristics of their inhabitants.
Simmel's analysis and ideas, which he derived from Darwinian ecology, shaped the Chicago School of urban sociology. Chicago urban sociology was the dominant paradigm between the s and the s.
The most famous summation of the paradigm occurred in Louis Wirth's article "Urbanism as a Way of Life", published in Wirth used three universal features of cities, large size, high density, and social heterogeneity, to derive ideal-typical social characteristics of urban life. The Chicago school stimulated important empirical research.
Pahl in Britain disproved any necessary connection between urban location and particular life-styles. Theoretically, the approach involves a form of naturalism which reifies physical characteristics of cities, falsely identifies them as the causes and not the consequences of social processes and erroneously concludes that social patterns occurring in cities are caused by cities.
The analysis of this approach suggests that to derive typical or characteristic patterns of social life from supposedly universal physical or demographic features of cities is to commit an empirical as well as an epistemological error. By the s, the paradigm had disintegrated.Walkable City: Consistent with the community liberated argument, researchers have in large part found that urban residents tend to maintain more spatially-dispersed networks of ties than rural or suburban residents.
