About this product
- DescriptionPolitical ecomy and Christian theology coexisted happily in the intellectual world of the eighteenth century. During the nineteenth century they came to be seen as incompatible, even mutually hostile. In the twentieth century they went their separate ways and are longer on speaking terms. These fourteen essays by Anthony Waterman serve as snapshots of the history of this estrangement, and illustrate the gradual replacement of the discourse of theology by that of ecomics as the rational framework of political debate. Others have recently shown that both political ecomy and Christian theology are important, though somewhat neglected elements in modern intellectual history. This book is the first to combine these two lines of inquiry.
- Author BiographyA. M. C. WATERMAN read economics at Cambridge, studied theology at St John's College, Winnipeg, and earned a doctorate in economics and economic history at the Australian National University. Beginning in 1965, he has published extensively both in economics and theology. Since his tenure of the Maurice Reckitt Fellowship in Christian Social Thought at the University of Sussex he has increasingly attempted to combine the two fields in intellectual history. His Revolution, Economics and Religion (Cambridge 1991) was awarded the Forkosch Prize for intellectual history in 1992.
