The differences of urban and rural as social spaces, their functions in society, as well as their mutual dependence is the subject of this chapter, which is studying the evolution of the functions of rural in relation to urban, and how this evolution was reflected in the basic streams of rural research. The text ends by discussing rural research in relation to present social, economic and ecological tendencies in society.
