Spatial or situational justice book
Contemporary discussions of spatial justice have been dominated by debates on urban justice from strongly Marxist and neo-Marxist perspectives. The influence of the conceptual apparatus of Marxist urban geography has meant that questions of spatial justice are assumed to issue from the structural inequalities of capital-labour relations. In terms ideas of spatial justice pragmatism at first appears to be unpromising territory. Most of the discussions of spatial justice deal with equality 'going in' as it were, the input relations, the production of space and the social relations of that production. Looking at spatiality from the perspective of communicative action, spatial justice can be seen as the push to assist human growth, open connections and to enhance the quality of communication to encompass further elements of experience. Spatial justice is a measure of quality of transaction and the degree to which the live creature is fully 'live'.
