Abstract: In 1958 Hirschman's The Strategy of Economic Development irrupted in the development economics scene. His work provided the explanations of the economic development with a new point of view, assessing productive activities by their capacity to inducing new activity. This book also induced in its author the studies about non-market mechanisms and their relevance in the correction of disequilibria. This article states that The Strategy of Economic Development constitutes the basis for the later Hirschman's works, and that his economic development theory can be interpreted as a theory of the development of science.
