Abstract

There is no philosopher who should be more closely associated with '68 than Lefebvre, especially if it is recognized that this historical moment had to do with the explosion of the urban, and a concomitant assault on the colonization of everyday life by the technocratic forces of capitalist commercialization. This paper aims to briefly underscore the three pivots around which Lefebvre's work gravitates and how they are both intervention and reflections on the explosion of the urban in the second half of the 20th century.
