Abstract


PATRICK GEDDES
“BY LIVING WE LEARN”
Patrick Geddes was a man of diverse interests and talents. Today he is probably best known as a town planner. However, he has also been described as biologist, sociologist, conservationist, educationist and ecologist.
Geddes did much to improve the living conditions in this local environment and was also a figure of international importance. He travelled widely and corresponded with the key thinkers and writers of the time such as Charles Darwin, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.
Above all, his aim was “ to see life whole”, and to achieve a better understanding of human beings in their natural, built and social environment. His ideas and concerns about the environment, education, and conservation are still as relevant today as they were in his own time.
