About this product
- DescriptionOnce again, unfettered capitalism has failed. Promises for global prosperity and peace have given way to a world of deep recession, social upheaval and political instability. Once again, mainstream ecomics has proved its inadequacy. Despite its technical rigour and mathematical virtuosity, it failed dramatically to respond to the current crisis. Why is this so? Mainstream ecomics turns a blind eye to society. By assumption, it maims its analyses by wiping away what makes us what we are. There is pressing need for a critical discussion and new ideas. We therefore turn to the insightful and stimulating work of Pierre Bourdieu. Arguably one of the major sociologists ever, he was also a major 'ecomist'. Yet his works on the ecomy have received only scant attention, especially from ecomists, be they 'mainstream' or 'heterodox'. Bourdieu helps to take a broader view and enrich our scientific imagination. By including dimensions of power, intuitive behaviour and social structures within the scope of his analysis, he provides for an alternative foundation of ecomics, based on an integrated, interdisciplinary theory. For the first time, this volume fills this gap in ecomics by featuring state-of-the-art research and experts from different social science disciplines. This book constitutes a first step, and hopes to become a milestone. The book offers an invative outlook and a unique source for social scientists of all fields, particularly ecomists and sociologists, who wish to engage in the study of Bourdieu and his ecomics with a view to developing a more pertinent theory. It will also constitute a useful reference for university students and administrators who would like to explore the ecomy from a Bourdieusian perspective.
