NATURALISTIC INQUIRY AS A PARADIGM FOR PLANNING.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

For the past four decades the rational model has been the ruling paradigm in planning. Criticisms of the model have now mounted to the extent that there is a crisis and paradigm breakdown in planning. Due to the difficulties with the rational model and in the search for an alternative paradigm the adoption of naturalistic inquiry is proposed. The five axioms of naturalistic inquiry are sketched out. The procedures and methods necessary to carry out the intent of the axioms, and that constitute the methodological aspect of the naturalistic paradigm, are briefly described. The adoption of naturalistic inquiry would have two major advantages: the naturalistic paradigm parallels the new paradigms appearing in many other fields, and it has both a theoretical framework and practice guidelines for planning action.
