Objective subject

Objective subject is the generalised human subject, not simply in the sense of historical individuals located in time and space and acting according to laws which, although objective, are intuitively known, and who by virtue of being everywhere in space and time in the formation and working of the city, everywhere imposes its point of view on the city, and creates the city in the image of its own cognitive capability.
