No 470, Textos para Discussão Cedeplar-UFMG from Cedeplar, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
This paper investigates Celso Furtado's elaboration on innovation. His book Criatividade e dependência na civilização industrial is the reference for this investigation. Furtado's approach on innovation is an opportunity to search his views about capitalism at the center of the system. Industrial civilization, led by the advanced capitalist countries, restraints creativity: this may be the starting point for Furtado's criticism of advanced capitalist societies. Therefore, from this interpretation of Criatividade e dependência na civilização industrial emerges an author that criticizes capitalism at its center - and this criticism might illuminate how the overcoming of underdevelopment should proceed.
