anyway, any thoughts on that?Ive been reading sennet's "the fall of public man" for, oops, over the whole of this year. It talks a lot about how public life in western cities like london and paris have became all shitty due to psychological intimacy replacing the more distanced social role-playing that happened during the 19th century.I keep thinking in what ways japan and spain relate to this.

I read The Fall of Public Man about ten years ago and loved it. Sennett is a favourite of mine, and I've mentioned him quite a bit over the years. Yes, I think Japanese public spaces fit much better with his ideals than Western ones do; see my Double Density essay for more on that.

hmmm, i'm inclined to see 'japanese public space' as something of an oxymoron rather ..
