What Is to Be Done? The Case of Developing Countries
Part of the Contemporary Systems Thinking book series (CST)


Habermas’s (1987b) empirical analysis of contemporary sociopathologies of welfare states focuses on industrially developed Western countries. But three-fourths of the world population belong to developing countries and for them some of his most valuable insights about modernity may not be relevant. Indeed, some of their problems may be of a uniquely different nature. It does, therefore, seem necessary to look at these developing societies and see in what respects their problems may indeed be different.
