Abstract:

Jack Goody asks whether religion impedes or advances development. He presents some philosophical arguments that have dominated the debate. He starts with Max Weber's conclusion that Protestantism was particularly adapted to the development of capitalism and discusses the influences of different religions on societies over time. This historical overview gives an important background to current debates on religion and development.Development (2003) 46, 64–67. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110492
