Chronotope of a Person without a Fixed Place of Residence



The article by Yu.S. Vitko and A.A. Lebedeva “Practices of working with the homeless: the prospect of the return of the “invisible” personality”, published in No. 4, 2021, of the journal “Social Psychology and Society”. Arguments are given in favor of a broader view of the problem of the chronotope of homeless people and its possible transformations in the process of practical assistance to such people. In particular, emphasis is placed on the development of not just temporal but also the spatial side (understood in a certain way) of the chronotope.
