Description - The Underside Of Modernity by Enrique Dussel
Dussel shows how North American and European philosophers have presupposed a no-longer-acceptable philosophy of history that has led them to fall into a "developmental fallacy," the belief that there is a linear sequence that moves from the pre-modern, underdeveloped, or on the way to industrialisation, to the modern, developed, and industrialised.
