Abstract

In this chapter, I consider the relationship between insecurity and the city. 1 Previous chapters have dealt with an enormous variety of definitions, forms and objects of security and insecurity. My approach here is multidisciplinary, historical and rooted in a philosophical position holding that all sentient beings should be able to flourish or unfold, to reach a full positive potential (Naess 1989).
