Abstract

In the developing world, after the marginalization of the socialist discourse, two kinds of discussions seem to be going on: the neo-libcral discourse and the postmodernist discourse. The latter group of theoreticians has attracted many radical opponents of the neo-liberal and globalizing development model. Over the last decade, a body of literature subscribing to the postmodern paradigm has appeared, and has started having a solid impact on western-based development academics, even though some of the major contributors originated from Third World countries. A few general remarks will therefore be made about the latter as a benchmark reference for a discussion on priorities in the development project. To what extent does postmodernism reflect a field-reality critique of the neo-liberal development model, and to what extent is it therefore a helpful theory in questioning, confronting and displacing the current development dinosaur?
