The City, Revisited

Francisco Sabatini

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter examines the city of Santiago, Chile, to highlight some of the important intermediate factors that need to be incorporated into a theoretical framework that explains future developments in Latin American cities. It argues that while the processes depicted by writers identified with the L.A. School provide crucial insights about cities almost everywhere, they miss the other side of the story: the mediation of local forms of resistance and accommodation, the inherited material structure of cities, and cultural factors. The tendency to overlook these local differences in a deductivist, empirically insensitive way has weakened the social sciences, and especially urban research, in Latin America.

Keywords:   urban development, urbanism, Latin American cities, L.A. School, urban dynamics, Santiago, Chile
