The Production of Theory
This chapter addresses two crucial issues surrounding Henri Lefebvre’s theory of space. First, what does it mean to read Lefebvre’s Marxist theory in line with the regression of socialism after the end of the Soviet Union and other socialist states, after the vanishing international communist movements, and after the decline of the communist parties? Second, what is the relevance of Lefebvre’s work for urban research today after the political and economic end of the regimes that instrumentalized Marxist rhetoric? This chapter explains the frailty of this theory by giving a historical account of its formulation.
