The tetralogy The State of Lefebvre (1976-8), is among his works the least known. However, The State synthesizes most of Lefebvrian theories and concepts. For example: spa-ce, city and urban, Marxism, language, nation and - of course - daily life, which we will use here as a counterpoint. In an attempt to examine our modernity, Lefebvre has studied the alie-nations that weigh on daily life in relation to the powers of the capitalist market and the state. The self-managed project, which is present throughout the work, will provide the glimpse of a path of liberation from human possibilities. The concept of self-management will be central (to speak as Fourier) between urban life, daily life and state criticism, as well as a mediation between theory and practice. Again, Lefebvre has not separated his metaphilosophy from a revolutionary policy capable, through self-management, of deepening democracy and changing daily life.
