1.3 SOCIAL-PSYCHOLOGICAL THEORIES
In the dualism and (economic) strategy theories discussed
so far, underdevelopment and development are explained by
economic factors alone while individual or group values and
motivations are neglected. The social-psychological theories
consider these very factors as main determinants of underdevelopment
and development. Thus, they add a new component to the discussion.
Because they reduce the causes to aspects of one discipline,
like economic theories, they are partial explanations as well.
