This contribution discusses the inadequacy of instrumental rationality when dealing with environmental problems, and thus facing complexity and uncertainty characterising both cognitive models and organisations involved. This issue is seen as crucial in environmental planning practice, a field where traditional evaluation processes present many undetermined aspects concerning both latent cognitive structures and problems lacking of solution.
