Smart Growth & Visioning


This presentation further develops my ongoing argument that the “big debates” about the nature of our world continue to reflect the contest between the Enlightenment and Romanticism.1


Of course these two modes of thought overlap in their influence on all of our lives. The most “rational” of us is likely to have some affection for “nature” and an appreciation of one or more of the arts. So we are talking about positions on a spectrum rather than a clash between polar opposites..


This presentation examines “Smart Growth”, and “Visioning” as a means of managing our urban and rural environments, within the context of this ongoing debate.New Road to Serfdom
