The ethics of development comprises both fieldwork and consideration of the theoretical frameworks that guide practical action. In this article, such a framework for development ethics is presented, in an effort to link two traditions: those associated with economists Denis Goulet and Amartya Sen, and the present author's own conceptions regarding applied ethics, which are rooted in MacIntyre's concept of practice along with the discourse ethics originally proposed by Karl-Otto Apel and Jürgen Habermas. Within such a framework it becomes possible to emphasize the ethical element of human development work, the goal of the ethics of development.
