This paper examines three essays on urbanism: "Urbanism as a Way of Life" by Louis Wirth, "The Metropolis and Mental Life" by George Simmel and "Money, Time, Space and the City" by David Harvey. This paper particularly examines each author's definition of city and/or urbanism as presented in their respective essays. These definitions are compared, taking into consideration the stated goals of the authors in developing these definitions and the historical contexts in which the essays were written and a conclusion is drawn as to which definition is the most convincing and why.
