N2 - We have been struck by the observation that language in ordinary everyday situations seems to be largely about organising future cooperation – language is planning. The article examines the possibility that planning as a professional activity would not be basically different from the planning that goes on in the use of language in arranging everyday life. This could open up a novel approach to developing a philosophy of planning proper as an alternative to the customary approach, which leans heavily on political philosophy. The language philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein has been helpful in expounding such thinking about planning, especially when regarding the language games proposed by Wittgenstein as a vast collection of plans for coping with aspects of everyday life.
