Cities are vast, complex orders that emerge from the voluntary actions of millions of people. In this issue, we take a look at them, from Sandy Ikeda's examination of the invisible blueprints that define cities, to Rod Lockwood's concept of a free city that could rescue Detroit, to Troy Camplin's theories of why cities exemplify the unity of paradox that defines beauty. Speaking of beauty, we reintroduce poetry to The Freeman. We also introduce The Arena, a monthly debate feature, and much, much more.
