Abstract: Planning for Growth: Urban and Reginal Planning in China provides both a high-level academic work to review contemporary Chinese urban and regional planning and a sample to critically review academic work itself. What underlying the two reviews are: 1) What are the "objective" general characteristics and values of Chinese urban and regional planning; 2) What is the proper logic demanded by socio-economic development, which is the basis to review 1)and anticipate its future; 3) How to properly recognize things, which is the common foundation of 1) and 2) and hence the two reviews. The paper tries to conduct the key answering of all these leads by succinct logic, and eventually accomplish the preliminary establishment of ontology, epistemology and methodology of Holism.
