About this product
- DescriptionAssembling contributions from top thinkers in the field, this companion offers a comprehensive and sophisticated exploration of the history of ecomic thought. The volume has a threefold focus: the history of ecomic thought, the history of ecomics as a discipline, and the historiography of ecomic thought. The essays in the first section focus on the history of ecomic ideas, with topics ranging from ancient, medieval and Islamic thought, to Marxian, Utopian and post-war thought. The second section explores important historiographical topics, including the sociology of ecomics, methodology, exegesis, and textuality. Each chapter serves as a complex introduction to the chosen topic, and gathered together they provide an extensive synthesis of the field as a whole. The volume is an essential resource for anyone researching or studying the history of ecomic thought, and will also serve as an excellent text for courses in this area.
