The book has two subjects, first the ethical theory of the ecomic order, and secondly the critique of sociobiology and its theory of evolution. The first part, the ethics of capitalism, analyzes the rise of capitalism and the business ethics and moral theory of a capitalist ecomic order in a perspective from philosophy and ecomics. The second part, a critique of sociobiology, gives a philosophical assessment of sociobiology's contribution to the theory of the ecomy and society and of its impact for metaphysics and a general world view. James M. Buchanan, Nobel prize winner in ecomics, discusses the first part of the book in his comment The Morality of Capitalism .
