This course presents and analyses the development of planning theory over the twentieth and twenty first centuries. It seeks to provoke a process of reflection on the scope and purpose of planning by contrasting the development of thinking about the fundamental purpose of planning and how it should be carried out in practice. This reflection leads in turn to a discussion of the ethics of planning practice which includes a range of practical scenario situations which students must address in interactive and role playing sessions.
