About this product
- DescriptionEcomics is essential in today's world, and yet mainstream ecomists are increasingly under criticism for t taking into account sufficiently many dimensions of real life, such as political and moral values, human development, spirituality, and people's widely shared aspiration to live more liberated lives. This book offers a critical assessment of contemporary mainstream ecomics by showing that the discipline has become much too narrow and misses out on the full spectrum of human existence. The book presents a careful, detailed analysis of the limitations of neoclassical ecomics and of its post-neoclassical successors: behavioral ecomics, neuroecomics, and experimental ecomics. It offers a deconstruction rooted in the Integral philosophy developed over the past three decades by the contemporary American thinker Ken Wilber. Distinguishing between exterior and interior dimensions of human existence, it suggests that ecomics could be made into a more inclusive and more emancipatory science if it started to truly hor the genuinely interior aspects of individuals and communities. Instead of remaining stuck in the limitations of post-neoclassical theory, we should make the move toward a new paradigm that, in the name of science, promotes objectivity as well as subjectivity, and material causality as well as existential awareness. The result is a highly expanded sense of relevance for ecomists, sociologists, and social scientists in general. Combining methodologies from systems science, brain science, eth-methodology, and existentialism as well as from the great spiritual traditions of humanity, Christian Arnsperger delineates the requirements of a genuinely integral ecomics beyond today's crippling reductionism.
