Famous quotes containing the words sociology and/or contemporary:

    Living in cities is an art, and we need the vocabulary of art, of style, to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living. The city as we imagine it, then, soft city of illusion, myth, aspiration, and nightmare, is as real, maybe more real, than the hard city one can locate on maps in statistics, in monographs on urban sociology and demography and architecture.
    Jonathan Raban (b. 1942)

    A sort of war of revenge on the intellect is what, for some reason, thrives in the contemporary social atmosphere.
    Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)
