- Abstract in English : The present context in which cities reveal their complex character urges ‘an ecologicalapproach … as an imaginative and practical method for addressing cities ... and as a new ethics and aesthetics of the urban’ (Mostafavi 2010). Thus the German philosopher's Peter Sloterdijkobservation that ‘there is no outside’ could offer the premises for the revival of an organic approach to architecture and urban planning. In this respect it will be argued that this would be an interpretation no longer associated with the anatomical similarity as it was done before but one based on the "thought-image of the foam" as a description of the current society imagined by the post-humanist German philosopher.
