This and the companion volume are about the ascent, vicissitudes and lacunae in the science and art modern ecomics and about Kenneth Arrow, his architectonic contributions to and impact on the theoretical and applied ecomics and moral and political philosophy of our age. They provide a comprehensive composite analysis of Arrow's approach and contributions to and his impact on modern ecomics and philosophy seen from various forms. In addition to original essays that t only analyse Arrow's contributions and impact, but provide insights into what is being done at the frontiers of the subject, these volumes contain interview chapters that afford extraordinary glimpses into the creativity and personality of the major contributors to the ecomics of our age (including our protagonist) and are an important historical document.
