    Mind and Matter. Geoff Manaugh. In Concrete Reveries, In a book heavy on philosophy, Kingwell discusses boundaries, thresholds, and the multivalent borders that divide inside from out. He looks at how spatialization ­affects—­and is affected ­by—­historically specific styles of ­thinking. Mark Kingwell, cultural theorist and University of Toronto philosophy professor, has just published a new book called Concrete Reveries. Although it is not really about concrete, it sounds like an interesting read – dealing with the ideas of cities as creative works in progress.

    With his new book, Concrete Reveries: Consciousness and The City, Mark Kingwell is a fitting speaker to open the celebration of a new institute devoted to urban life.
