Abstract:  This commentary traces key issues attaching to the use of the word ‘public’ within planning practices and theories. It argues for an alternative, non-binary engagement with public practices that may profit from being cast in a Foucauldian language and epistemology.

Keywords:  alternative practices; dispositive; Foucauldian language; public sphere
