Abstract

The co-authored paper aims to address the contemporary ‘smart city’ construct limitations, challenges and paradoxes from a threefold perspective: philological, economic, and inter/transdisciplinary per se. The three co-authors will address the topic from their respective viewpoints:

Adriana-Carolina Bulz discusses contemporary humanistic limitations, paradoxes, false challenges and perspectives within a 'Smart City', while focusing on Don DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis (2003).

Eliza Bulz expands on financial drift to learn from previous mistakes (by way of the 2008-2013 global financial crisis, and more versus the estate boom trick), while Nicolae Bulz starts from the concept of "Knowledge Society" and works toward "Consciousness Society" alongside the 'Smart City' construct.

Keywords: cyber-capital, financial drift, leveraging, knowledge, consciousness, challenge
