9780521344500: The Boundaries of Economics (Murphy Institute Studies in Political Economy)

The essays in this book explore some of the important areas of the long boundary between economics and intellectually adjacent disciplines, by placing the neoclassical paradigm in the broader context of these other social sciences. Written by economists and philosophers, these papers examine the themes that complicate the conventional economist's view of the world and thereby provide a notably more complex (and humane) subject than the traditional homo economicus. In analyzing these "imperialist forays" from the field and "territorial invasions" upon it, the contributors seek to understand what it is that separates economics from the other kinds of inquiry and to expound upon the actual limits of economics. They also look at the shifts and changes in the boundaries of what is considered economics.

Book Description:

This volume examines themes that complicate the conventional economist's view of the world and thereby provide for a notably more complex, and humane, subject of study than the traditional Homo economicus.

Review:

"...a stimulating collection of accessible discussions of the methodological concerns facing economics. It combines brevity with a range of issues, which makes it an attractive intellectual opportunity for the reading-overburdened." History of Political Economy

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This volume examines themes that complicate the conventional economist s view of the world and thereby provide for a notably more complex, and humane, subject of study than the traditional Homo economicus. Written by economists and philosophers, these essays attempt to place neoclassical economic theory, especially conventional textbook micro-economic theory, in the broader context of other social sciences and modern economics. In doing so, the book aims to find the boundaries of economics and to define more sharply its relationship to other kinds of inquiry. Though the widespread use of textbook microtheory in business, economic, and political analysis is a clear testament to its power, the restrictions and artificialities of neoclassical assumptions give cause for worry even to many economists. This book examines the extent to which the economist s paradigm - that man is characterized chiefly by self-interested goals and rational choice of means - is useful in studying traditional noneconomic fields such as philosophy, political theory, and rhetoric. It also looks at how insights from other disciplines are changing - and perhaps improving - the current practice of economics. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521344500
