Abstract

The objectivity and the realism of social sciences are questioned, and so are the relevance and the adequacy of theories and policies of development economics. It is concluded that the status of social sciences and of the economics of development would improve if value judgments are aired openly and consciously, if it is recognized that theories and policies of development have a time and place, and if economic and noneconomic forces are integrated in a comprehensive explanation of the process of development.
