1. Mumm, Shanna Lee. Senghor's Contribution to Development: Culture, Cosmopolitanism and Earth Wisdom.

Degree: MA, Department of International Development Studies, 2011, Dalhousie University

This thesis is an exploration of how Senghorian thought can be useful for rethinking development. I argue that the criticisms provided by post-development are valid but that we need not reject development entirely. Rather than basing development in paternalism and charity, a foundation that will support and cultivate equality is necessary. I argue that Senghor's philosophy is particularly useful for rethinking development because it involves the deconstruction of colonial legacies, especially notions of inferiority and superiority. Furthermore, a Senghorian approach is useful because his cosmopolitan vision is based on ultimate equality that still recognizes and encourages cultural difference and finally, because his philosophy prescribes a way for humans to live in harmony with nature. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Jean-Christophe Kasende (external-examiner), Dr. Nissim Mannathukkaren (graduate-coordinator), Dr. Owen Willis (graduate-coordinator), Dr. John Cameron (thesis-reader), Dr. Chike Jeffers (thesis-supervisor), Not Applicable (ethics-approval), Not Applicable (manuscripts), Not Applicable (copyright-release).

Subjects/Keywords: development; Léopold Sédar Senghor; culture; cosmopolitanism; environmentalism; Negritude
