Eurocentrism and Imperialism

Abstract

The paradigm of development which gives prevalence to an interpretation-based “European exceptionalism” and “non-European backwardness” fails to explicate the reasons for the divide between “early comers” and “late comers” in the evolution and growth of human history and underplays the question of imperialism as the organizational pattern of the world to serve the interests of the “European Miracle.” The supposition that capitalist imperialism was/is a benevolent philanthropic model and pattern of political economic relations conducive to the establishment of a harmonious commonality deserves to be questioned and rejected as not consistent with past or present experience and reality.
