The issue of International Development is one which much attention is being geared towards, and as such, every subject of material implication and correlation to it is to be carefully analyzed to draw conclusions to aspects which her usefulness will be to International Development. Philosophy as a subject is one whose potentials to contributing to International Development are infinite. As a result, a study such as this is aimed at bringing to light the positive aspects which the subject Philosophy can bring to International Development and its importance. Philosophy by definition is a very complex and rather ambiguous subject. This complexity and ambiguity do not arise from the fact that Philosophy is a vague and an incomprehensible subject, but from the fact that they are many philosophical viewpoints, with different philosophers, defining Philosophy from their own viewpoints. This difference of definitions is also a function of the purpose to which Philosophy is to be applied in a particular situation.
