Social Intelligence: Prerequisite for the Management of Science and Technology

  • Arnoldo Ventura


Underdevelopment is more a state of mind than a consequence of environmental, social or technical impoverishment. This is not to deny that prolonged underdevelopment will eventually lead to a deterioration of the environment, wastage of natural and technical resources, and a destruction of social integrity. Instead, this assertion is based on the fact that underdevelopment can often be observed in the midst of relative abundance and that it is accompanied by a paralysis of will and a surrender to ignorance.
