This paper describes the negative conclusion drawn by two authors, George Simmel and Louis Wirth, in two essays about the impact of urbanization on human beings.

From the Paper:

"The two authors of these essays, especially, Simmel has tried to maintain an objective stance on urbanism but has failed to reach a positive conclusion. He, like Wirth, makes it clear that urban life with all its benefits and advantages is still not worth pursuing for it leads to psychological problems that affect a man's relationship with the society and his community. Similarly Wirth points out what, he believes, is wrong with the urban phenomena and shows the negative impact of it has on human beings. In this way, they both appear to support Nietzsche's theories and his utter hatred for metropolitan lifestyle and capitalism."
