The series of four papers document the growth in conceptual thinking of a new discipline designed to teach global awareness. The first paper, The Case for Developmentalogy, argues for the establishment of a fully recognized and accredited discipline in the study of global development, with relevant, general courses offered at the elementary, secondary, and college levels. This new discipline, termed developmentology, will surmount the restrictions and impediments imposed on human understanding by the nation-state concept of world order. The second paper, Developmentology--Phase II, further defines the conceptual basis of developmentology emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of its study. The third paper, Developmentology: The Study of Global Systems and Human Development, examines the expressed suggestions and criticisms of scholars and educators who have reviewed the concept and the practical problems of developing the new discipline. The fourth paper, Developmentology: Paths Toward Implementation, focuses on the rationale and content for a developmentology discipline and discusses possible interdisciplinary curriculum components and planning strategies.
