Example text

The next move should be the examination in detail of a selected culture. Thirdly, after having noted that the rich countries are not an obligatory model to follow, and that a specific Third World perception is hard to identify, another curious fact remains to be pointed out. The initial lack of symmetry between Western and Third World attitudes towards development, as reflecting their respective perceptions of the m a n - e n v i r o n m e n t relationship, is apparently repeated in the reorientations currently in progress on either side.

Next, we consider the broader context in which development occurs, from an often neglected angle. Customarily, development experts take development to be something (mainly) economic and accordingly describe the unit that is to develop as an economy. O r they take it to be political and refer to the polity. Less often, they may take it to be social, and refer to a society. We shall consider all this in Chapter 4. All the while, they tacitly refer to the sovereign nation-state, ubiquitous in the world today, and concentrate on one or some of its salient or problematic features.

Secondly, the current debate will be reviewed in search of harbingers of forthcoming developments in the thinking about development. This search appears to be in order inasmuch as it is in the very nature of the concept of development, as used with regard to the Third World, that sooner or later its usefulness will be challenged. This is of special interest to sociologists. The predominance of the economic, or rather the economistic, vision of development is increasingly being challenged. This can only mean that sociologists and others can expect a summons to appear in the limelight before long.
