Short summary
This paper analyses two master plans of the canton Ticino from a philosophical point of view – the first one from 1990, Keynesian, and the second one from 2009, neoliberal. This type of analysis, by showing the political and moral concepts and criteria underlying a master plan, favours their political discussion and thus, ultimately, the implementation of a more inclusive planning process.
