Keywords: Henri Lefebvre | urban sociology | social production of space | right to the city

This paper presents the impact of Henri Lefebvre’s thought in contemporary urban sociology. In the first chapter, the reader can find brief descriptions of two most relevant Lefebvre’s concepts linked to his comprehension of space: production of space, the right to the city and a couple of firmly related concepts. The second chapter presents several examples of their recent interpretations by the authors from different theoretical backgrounds. Simultaneously, it evaluates the relevance of Lefebvre’s theoretical assumptions in contemporary social context, as well as their theoretical and methodological relevance for further research and development of urban sociology. Conclusion emphasizes that Lefebvre’s ideas have a deep and long term influence in urban sociology.
