Urban Ethics under Conditions of Crisis investigates the states of urban planning, architectural design, sustainability, landscape architecture, and engineering, and examines their correlation with social attitudes and dispositions that can impact on socio-cultural and political engagement internationally in conditions of crisis. The theme of the book emphasizes the need to acknowledge the controversial character of contemporary social life under critical social conditions, in correlation with urban space. It concerns the evaluation of critical issues such as:
- Urban development as ethical question,
- Urban environment and urban landscape ethics, related with interpretation, preservation, and management of urban space and to the dubious dichotomy between the "cultural" and "natural" character of cities, and
- The ethics of the urbanized Western world in comparison with the non-western periphery.
