abstract

  • This essay deals with problems of planning fundamental in the sense that they transcend socioeconomic systems. It is partitioned into four. The first part refers to some problems of transition from the realm of individuals to the social realm. The second part establishes the generality of the concept of an optimum city and its anti-utopian character. The third part discusses urban policy, politics and their impact on the attainment of an optimum city. Finally, the fourth part begins with a question on the nature of optimal institutions and concludes with some laws that cities under such optimal institutions should obey.
