Summary/Abstract: The subject matter of the monograph The city in the world of discourses focuses on the category of the city as well as the related issues which are located and considered within the framework of the text methodology and discourse linguistics, cultural linguistics, sociology and transdisciplinary paradigms: Critical Discourse Analysis and Urban Cultural Studies. The publication is a proposal for characterizing and outlining the framework of the discourse the scope of which would cover all the discourses whose reference subject is the city as an extremely complex and heterogeneous category. What has been subjected to scrutiny is the practice of metropolitan experience, perception issues and cultural intermediacy within the relation of man with this type of space. The analyses, which were connected to the reading of textual representations of contemporary Polish metropolises, brought about the formulation of the principles, norms and conventions of the urban discourse.
