|Title:||Social Space in Interdisciplinary Perspective||Authors:||Buttimer, Anne||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10723||Date:||Jul-1969||Online since:||2019-05-30T08:56:19Z||Abstract:||The concept of social space (l'espace social) was defined and illustrated by Maximillien Sorre in reference to ethnic, religious, and language groups. Paul-Henri Chombart de Lauwe distinguished between objective social space (the spatial framework set by ecological and cultural conditions) and subjective social space (the space perceptions of a particular group), hypothesizing that in an urban context where a discrepancy between these two frameworks occurred, social pathologies tend to develop. This led to his studies of optimal residential densities, neighborhood design, and other standards, applicable to working-class families. A relatively simple analytical concept has thus produced a variety of research orientations.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Geographical Society||Journal:||Geographical Review||Volume:||59||Issue:||3||Start page:||417||End page:||426||Copyright (published version):||1969 American Geographical Society||Keywords:||Geography; Sociology; Urban ecology; Social psychology; Cultural groups; Socioeconomics; Biotopes; Urban sociology; Linguistic substrata; Urban habitats||DOI:||10.2307/213485||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
