The development: a radical criticism of one's view of the world[Essay] by Pablo Nomanza

2008-03-23

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2006/2007.

Who and what does the development refer to? Why, what for? The research and  reflection work done here is an attempt to explore what exactly is the idea of development, what justifies it, what is its basis, what values and concepts it relies on, what promise it embodies, where development leads men and the planet to, and what justifies the concept of “after-development”.
