The author begins by presenting a critical assessment of some aspects of what he refers to as the traditional perspective of analysis, which he feels has permeated virtually every facet of development planning. Some of these aspects are the shared understanding of problems, the search for optim al solutions, a reliance on abstract models, quantification and predictability, the possibility of determ ining objective truth and the assumption that time is linear and objective.
