The growth of urbanization is important issue among the scientists in different disciplines. Islamic philosophers had a key role in explanation of city and its problems since last times. Among these thinkers, the name of Farabi as “Second Master” has highlighted in related research of urbanization and citizen’s affairs.
The object of this research is studying the Farabi’s ideas about urbanization and its application in knowledge of planning specially for citizen’s participation.
The Methodology is based on descriptive-analytical method that generally uses the documentary and library resources.
Finally, results showed that the ideas of Farabi have some overlapping with other thinker’s ideas in our era.
In other words, we can express that we face to a community – oriented point of view which is oriented to urban affairs. His views are so close to public participation which can be one of the best important issues in human- oriented planning. These results make more applicable the role of philosophy among human disciplines especially in urban disciplines.
