Can any city be happy again? On the margins of the book by Charles Montgomery

The article deals with two main issues: (1) how to understand the crisis in the context of the city, (2) how to define “happy city” in the context of positive psychology. According to the book Happy city written by Charles Montgomery, the author tries to distinguish between two main conceptions of “happiness” (urban hedonism and urban eudaimonia) and tries to answer a question of what factors could make a city “happy” again. The brief analyses of cultural articulation of possible future of cities contains such issues as culture of crisis, social isolation, solitude in culture, ecocity and biophilic design.
