Summary/Abstract: The author analyzes the contexts of the contemporary humanistic discussion about a city. He contrasts these contexts with a new research program which combines urban sociology and anthropology with reflection on everyday life. In order to analyze the problem of the organization of life in urban centers not only as a task for engineers and marketing specialists or as an object of recollections; he introduces and justifies the idea of the “program of using a city”. He also substantiates the thesis that the most cognitionally productive is the focusing on different unsuccessful uses of these programs, taking into consideration all kinds of strategies of their circumvention.
