Patterns of Doctrinal Development

Patterns of Doctrinal Development Planning doctrine refers to a conceptual scheme giving coherence to planning by means of conceptualizing an area's shape, developmental challenges, and ways of handling them. The focus of this article is on the dynamics of such a doctrine. Drawing on Thomas Kuhn, doctrine implies a phase model, from a pre-doctrinal to a doctrinal situation and on to one where revolution threatens. Four pre-doctrinal situations are discussed: the Flemish Structure Plan, the Second Outline Structural Plan for the Benelux, European Union planning, and Florida's state growth management. Conceiving of them as pre-doctrinal focuses on how, in the fullness of time, they may evolve. However, what about situations where, like in the Netherlands, doctrine is mature? In those situations, a ‘Laudanian Model’ of evolutionary change (after Larry Laudan, a critic of Kuhn) opens up new perspectives. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Planning Education and Research SAGE

Abstract

Planning doctrine refers to a conceptual scheme giving coherence to planning by means of conceptualizing an area's shape, developmental challenges, and ways of handling them. The focus of this article is on the dynamics of such a doctrine. Drawing on Thomas Kuhn, doctrine implies a phase model, from a pre-doctrinal to a doctrinal situation and on to one where revolution threatens. Four pre-doctrinal situations are discussed: the Flemish Structure Plan, the Second Outline Structural Plan for the Benelux, European Union planning, and Florida's state growth management. Conceiving of them as pre-doctrinal focuses on how, in the fullness of time, they may evolve. However, what about situations where, like in the Netherlands, doctrine is mature? In those situations, a ‘Laudanian Model’ of evolutionary change (after Larry Laudan, a critic of Kuhn) opens up new perspectives.
