Abstract

J.-N. Loucou & C. Wondji— History and Development. Has history, as a scientific discipline, a role to play in the development of contemporary African societies ? Yes, if development is considered as a global, total enterprise and not just as a combination of economie growth and technological modernisation. A study in depth of both African and universal history is a prerequisite to the formation of the kind of collective awareness urgently needed in the new nation-States in order to break away from colonial alienation and achieve a kind of African Renaissance', without which there is no possibility of a meaningful development.
