"You're the only ones who think planning is interesting" - Ed Feser
uh oh--does this thing know who's clicking?? look at the first one i got "enhance abandoned contexts" yikes.
There is actually some scholarly work criticizing an over-emphasis on "processes" rather than institutions and behavior. The passive language of process-oriented literature tends to remove actors from the equation. So, instead of actors doing something to change a city, for example, a city is rather subject to "change" for which no entity is assigned responsibility. I tend to agree, though I think processes are very important to understand. For more, read Ann Markusen (1999) "Fuzzy Concepts, Scanty Evidence, Policy Distance: the case for rigour and policy relevance in critical regional studies." Regional Studies, vol 33.
