This article is a reflection on human habitat iaking-off from a sentence by
Millán Puelles: "Animáis do not have problems with shelter, human beings
do". A manner of overcoming the "philosophy of uprootment", apparently
supported by the crisis of the city, is proposed. Such a crisis responds to two
errors latent in the conception of human space. The first one is to be found in
the notion of space in use; the second, in the wrong usage of the means-end
model in the relationship between spatial organization and human habitat.
The solution to such a crisis lies in the recognition that spatial organization
(habitat) above all consists in the construction of modes of living.
