Summary, in English

The paper starts with a theoretical discussion about individual versus collective behavior in urban society. The classical theories of Ferdinand Tönnies and Georg Simmel are starting points in a discussion which ends in modern theories of urbanism as a way of life. In modern urbanism three spheres of life are distinguished; the private sphere, the neighborhood sphere and the public sphere. Especially the social structuring of the neighborhood sphere seems to be extremely important in processes of behavior change, e.g. in measures of waste management and energy saving.



The second part of the paper centers on urbanism and forms of life in Sweden. A discussion follows on social segregation, housing management and forms of tenure which ends in identification of different forms of life in the swedish housing market, the rental sector, the cooperative sector and the private sector. The sectors are empirically described in social, demographical and physical variables. The three forms of life give a common background for individual behavior of its members as well as for the households, but differs in creating processes of collective action. The analysis of waste management in the three forms of life has in depth interviews as empirical material.
