The concept of “development" like that of "freedom" is shrouded with difficulties and complexities. To some, development is not easily defined because of what it connotes in as far as it is dependent upon the particular setting, environment or context in which it occurs or is defined. To others, development implies change, and this is one sense in which the term development is used i.e. to describe the process of economic and social transformation within countries. Such a process often follows a well-ordered sequence of events and exhibits what may be called common characteristics across countries. And to those who consider development as an objective of policy, the central question asked is: "Development for what?" the paper examines this a little further.
