Contributions to Disciplinary Thought
Edited by Jean d’Aspremont and Sahib Singh
Chapter 13: Development
This chapter examines the institutional, discursive and political economic dimensions of the postwar regime of development. In addition to discussing the twentieth-century paradigms of development, such as modernization, dependency, basic needs and human development, it offers an extended treatment of the ideological antecedents of development in natural law theories on property, classical political economy, late industrialization and the Mandate System. It is argued that the central axis connecting the development regime to its historical antecedents is a particular politics of universalism that is embedded in global structures of capitalism and enduring legacies of colonialism.
