Tech and the city: Axialization, institutionalization and disruption

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


“Something, something big, was happening in multiple places along the axis running from China to the Mediterranean [and beyond] in the first millenium BCE..” That axial age spurred by urbanization and with guidance from axial sages invented modernity (logic and institutions, rationality and strategic interactions and education and participatory civic society.) How should the smart cities of the future reaxialize to withstand deceptive interference, isolation against pandemics, cellularized instituions, etc.?
