In this paper, we shall analyse the dimension which space assumes in urban sociology using micro-sociological experiences of the social action. Space and place have different connotations and their relationship indicates the meaningful dimension which is determined by human action. Physical space is the effect of human action and becomes a part of social experience when it assumes a certain, aesthetic and functional value. In this paper, we will consider some sociological positions which have privileged the "spatial dimension" in order to compose a theoretical framework which takes into account the perception of space in ordinary experience.
