Science and Development
International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences: Second Edition
Aimed at a contemporary view of science and development that takes into account changes brought about by information and communication technologies, this article examines why low-income countries are in pursuit of the "Western way of knowing" known as science. Toward this aim, several perspectives are reviewed: modernization, dependency and world systems, neoinstitutional, global systems, postcolonialism, and reagency. The intent is to highlight how each casts the nature of science and its relation to the project of development.
