Political Science

Amit Prakash

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the main currents of literature on development in the output model of development in terms of coverage, efficacy, and problems, contesting development by politically differentiating a universal (istic) discourse, and evolving institutional forms and processes through particularizing universalism. It also highlights the need for Indian scholars to reinterpret received frameworks of development discourse in light of the peculiarities of India’s empirical experience of development. It also argues that academic thinking and analysis should not be enslaved to the demands of ‘policy relevance’.

Keywords:   development discourse, Indian scholars, universalistic discourse, universalism, output model, policy relevance, academic thinking, academic analysis
