MAFFESOLI, Michel. La potencia de los lugares emblemáticos. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.44, pp.41-57. ISSN 2448-5799.

This work reflects on the relation between space and sociality; this way, the sense of the social in our contemporary cities comes from the sense that the space confers in so far as it experiences. The cities are presented as rich scenarios of sensations, situations and experiences, which create the space for sociality. The city is seen as a sensitive space, therefore, essentially rational. The experience of space, with all the charge of sense (where emotions, affections and symbols circulate), in the quotidian allows the understanding of phenomenon such as the sociality in its various forms, the power of the social, as well as the generation of sacred, orgiastic zones, as well as observing the profiles of sociality our post-modern urban world.

Keywords : aesthetics; city; sociality; quotidian.
