The Worldliness of Planning Theory

The Worldliness of Planning Theory

(p.192) Ten The Worldliness of Planning Theory
Planning Matter

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

This chapter explores the extent to which planning theorists are connected to intellectual debates outside the field. The premise is that such engagements legitimize planning as an activity that deserves scholarly recognition and a place in universities. The work of four planning theorists is used to illustrate the way in which theorists use the literature within planning and beyond it to develop their arguments. The chapter ends with a discussion of the potential for planning theorists to become public intellectuals.
