Critical Commentary

Amílcar Herrera debated the phenomenon of the technical and scientific dependence of Latin American countries.

His analysis revolved around three central themes: the reasons for scientific underdevelopment and the conditions to overcome it, the guidelines for a science and technology policy, and the cost estimation of science. Above all, the book aimed to push for deeper studies, particularly among social sciences specialists.
