The polis, properly speaking, is not the city-state as it is physically located in a territory; it is the organization of people as it arises from their acting and speaking together, and its authentic space is realized among the people who live together for this purpose, regardless of where they are. "Wherever you go, you will be a pòlis", these famous words were not only the watchword of Greek colonization, but expressed the belief that action and discourse create a space between the participants that can find its place almost in any place and any time. It is the space of appearing, in the broadest sense of the word: the space where others appear as others appear to me, where men do not just exist like other living or inanimate things but make their explicit appearance.
