To Shön design is not problem solving activity in the sense that Problem solving is generally considered as handling problems as “given,” whereas the process of “problem setting” is neglected. Starting with problems as “given,” matters of “choice or decision are solved through the selection, from available means, of the one best suited to established ends. But with this emphasis on problem solving, we ignore problem setting, the process by which we define the decision to be made, the ends to be achieved, and the means that may be chosen.
