NOGUEIRA, Maria Aparecida Lopes. The city imagined, or the city’s imaginary. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 1998, vol.5, n.1, pp.115-123. ISSN 1678-4758.

Exploring the topic ‘actual city/imagined city’, the article argues that when we reflect on the question of city, we are also reflecting upon ourselves - including all our dreams, frustrations, anxieties, and hopes. This discussion is made possible by a science that interrelates the issues of daily life, of memory, of symbol and of myth.

Keywords : city; imagination; imaginary; symbol; myth.
