Abstract Modern town planning has developed from a diffuse and unstable set of philosophical and technical stimuli, to which has been added the provocations of contemporary scientific achievements. There is a persistent danger that town planning can become 'dehumanized' persuing altruistic internally-generated rather than anthropocentric goals and objectives. This paper explores some of the basic philosophical and ideological parameters of planning as a step towards the establishment of a substantial raison d'etre for the craft-expressed succinctly it attempts to review a possible basis for ideological fundamentalism in town planning by examining the concept of social justice, the spectrum of ideology, the historical legacy of town planning and its commitment to spatial systems.
