The urbanistic discourse between professionalism and bluff
In the first part the text presents the basic methodological disposition of the discoursive analysis and its applicability in processing urbanistic problems. It can help to understand why there is a lot of permanent communication problems in the field, but it can also help to reveal the structure of interests which in urbanism quite often is not transparent enough. In the second part the theoretical discoursive typology is presented and discussed. The third part presents the results of the qualitative context analysis of the expert discourse in texts dealing with Ljubljana urbanism.
