Abstract: The main objective of this work is to bring a different perspective from that presented in previous works on the “development process” in Furtado’s thought. In line with his methodological writings, we argue that Furtado extrapolated, in his formulation of the “development process”, the limits of economic science, thus diverging from conventional economic growth models. Furthermore, we emphasize that the referred author managed to combine, in a creative manner, different aspects of the previous formulations on economic development.

Keywords: Celso Furtado. Development Process. Transdisciplinarity.
