Summary

Understanding Development: A Process of Social Change

  • Development is a process of social change, not merely a set of policies and programs.

  • The basic mechanism driving social change is increasing awareness leading to better organization.

  • Development is governed by many factors that influence the results of developmental efforts.

  • Society passes through well-defined stages in the course of its development.

  • Development pace and scope varies according to the stage society is in.

  • Economic development and human development need not mean the same thing.

  • Four related but distinct terms and phenomena form successive steps in a graded series: survival, growth, development, and evolution.

  • Development is a human process, in the sense that human beings, not material factors, drive development.

  • The development of organizations may come through the formulation of new laws and regulations or new systems.

  • Families play a major role in the propagation of new activities once they win the support of the society.

  • Education is one of the most powerful means of propagating and sustaining new developments.

  • Technological innovation was spurred by general advances in the social organization of knowledge.

  • Technological development depends on social organizations.

  • Individual scientific inventions build on past accomplishments in an incremental manner.

  • The concept of inherent limits to development arose mainly because past development was determined largely by availability of physical resources.

  • Society's developmental journey is marked by three stages: physical, vital, and mental.

  • The physical stage is characterized by the domination of the physical element of the human personality.

  • The vital stage of society is infused with dynamism and change.

  • The mental stage has three essential characteristics: practical, social, and political application of mind.

  • The relative duration of these three stages and the speed of transition from one to another varies from one society to another.
