Abstract

By means of observation carried out at various railway stations, we documented how passers-by would engage eventful but ordinary situations, mundane ones, with a very low level of involvement. It is this lack of great investment between people and with equipment, inherent at railway stations, that creates an “experiential scene” adapted to the minimal moral dispositions of our living together, with others as well as with objects. It is thanks to a sort of “collective morality” “widely shared among those using a station, its space and facilities - that we can observe only when stations are open to business, that this common space - an environment with clashes and confrontations - remains livable.
