Abstract

The capitalist stage of history has concentrated an increasing proportion of its productive mechanisms in urban areas. As Marx predicted, Western capitalist development has broken down rural society and turned peasants and small farmers into an ever-increasing rural and urban proletariat. As this process developed, Western modes of production have increasingly reflected this growing urban emphasis. Intellectual production is no exception.
