This chapter discusses city living which is considered as a contest of behavioural expectations, with different groups being more or less willing to have their expectations challenged. It considers the relationships between respect and plurality, urban aesthetics and consumerism and performance. In this chapter the discussions are framed within the concept of ‘cosmopolitanism’. The chapter concludes that urban living should test beliefs and expectations, that there needs to be an element of risk because this is what urban living is about. It also concludes that rather than leading to contest and fear of others, urban encounters should nurture mutual respect.

Keywords:   city living, behavioural expectations, respect, plurality, urban aesthetics, consumerism, performance, cosmopolitanism, urban living, mutual respect
