About this product
- DescriptionEcomists have t always been on friendly terms with scientists from other fields. More than once, ecomists have been accused of 'imperialism' or criticized for neglecting the insights obtained in other fields. The history of ecomics, however, yields manifold examples of interdisciplinary 'borrowing' where ecomists have adapted concepts and theories from other fields. This book deals with the exchanges (or sometimes the lack thereof) between ecomics and neighbouring disciplines. The contributions examine specific cases and episodes taken from the history of ecomics, indicating that many important ecomists were paying attention to what happened beyond the borders of their own field. The themes covered include: * the interaction of ecomics with literature, Christian theology, history, demography, and natural sciences * the relationships between ecomics and policy, and ecomics and 'common sense'. With contributions from leading specialists, this volume will prove essential reading t only for those working in ecomics, but also those interested in the possibilities of disciplinary cross-fertilisation in any subject.
