Yet despite the geometric expansion of tourism knowledge, it seems that some areas have remained stubbornly underdeveloped and a full or comprehensive consideration of the philosophical issues of tourism represents one such significant knowledge gap. A key aim of this book therefore, is to provide an initial mapping of, and insights into boullkn territory.

For tourism has become a significant creator of forms in the contemporary world. At a micro level, tourism creates souvenirs and representations. It generates signage and interpretative clutter. It causes buildings restaurants, terminals, accommodation, galleries to rise turiticas being with their exterior architecture and interior design. At a macro level it scapes parts of the world into seasides, ski resorts and whole tourism cities such as Las Vegas.

It causes some land and city scapes to be revered and preserved, others to be overturned by development. Indeed the word development Pearce, and that of planning Gunn, each suggests an interest in and an ability to affect the way in which tourism will be delivered in the future.

These words further suggest that there are particular ends that have bouolon thought out to which development is directed. Against this notion of a tourism world 3 4 Part 1: Introduction created through rational planning, the sociologist Anthony Giddens employed the term Runaway World as the title for a series of lectures and a recreqcionales. He used the term to describe a world that was developing quickly and out of our control.


In his book, Giddens But instead Giddens In many cases tourism proceeds in an essentially unplanned and barely controllable way. This is because, like most things, tourism is delivered in recreaciobales largely uncontrolled neoliberal market environment, which often precedes and overpowers attempts at planning and management.

But more importantly, neoliberalism is a deeply ideological project. That Adam Smith talked about the invisible hand is significant here as neoliberalism creates and forms our tourism world in a seemingly unconscious, routine, zctividades sense way almost as if it were the natural way and that there was no alternative. Tourism development seems to happen without much conscious effort. Moreover, the study of economics often lays claim to the importance of valuefreedom.

But there are implicit values at work in neoliberalism.

Boullón, Roberto C.

These include individualism, competition, technology, the reification of markets and after Adam Smith the belief that the pursuit of self-interest leads to socially beneficial results. The idea of performativity is particularly potent for, as Lyotard explained, it is a key force driving the progress of technological knowledge. Here, useful knowledge is favoured so that The production of proof. The ability fecreacionales locate ourselves in a tourism world that has runaway qualities and identify and question its powerful neoliberal driving forces is in itself a philosophical act.

For at its very simplest, philosophising is the ability to extract ourselves from the busy, engaged world of making and doing things, to disengage and to pause for refection and thought especially about meaning and actividadws. The word philosophy is derived from the Greek term meaning love of wisdom and the Concise Oxford Dictionary defines philosophy as: Seeking after wisdom or actividadds, esp.

Philosophical Issues in Tourism (Aspects of Tourism)

The unpacking of this definition provides a further indication of the interests of this book since it merely raises more questions. What is it to know something? What is the nature of reality? Why are some things considered beautiful and desirable? What are ethics and what is good and bad? What are desirable ends? It is these questions that are now addressed more fully in the three main sections of this book under the headings of truth, beauty and virtue.

Reality, Knowledge and Disciplines Tourism is often portrayed as a new subject of research and activity in universities, but despite its relative youth it has already generated substantial amounts of knowledge. For example Annals of Tourism Research has been producing articles sincethe number of specialist research journals stands at over 50 and a recent search of the CABI abstract service revealed the existence of around 50, items mainly articles but also including books and chapters recorded under the subject head of tourism.

The field also generates a substantial programme of conferences. Amazon lists over book titles that include the word tourism. But most of the knowledge produced in these ways is what might be termed additive knowledge, that is knowledge that seeks to add or adapt theories, insights or understandings about the phenomenon of tourism. In contrast, the task of this section is to place the 6 Part 1: Introduction process of tourism knowledge production under scrutiny and to consider more carefully what it means to know.

Such an enquiry is perhaps particularly necessary in the present era, which is witnessing an explosion of information largely enabled by rapid developments in digital communications and media.
