The great transformation by Karl Polanyi( Book )

264 editions published between 1944 and 2020 in 17 languages and held by 3,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic work of economic history and social theory, Karl Polonyi analyzes the economic and social changes brought about by the "great transformation" of the Industrial Revolution. His analysis explains not only the deficiencies of the self-regulating market, but the potentially dire social consequences of untempered market capitalism. New introductory material reveals the renewed importance of Polanyi's seminal analysis in an era of globalization and free trade."--Jacket
Un Siècle de marxisme : avec deux textes inédits de Karl Polanyi by Lucille Beaudry( )

10 editions published in 1990 in French and English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'importante mobilisation intellectuelle des penseurs radicaux alentour du projet de Marx a produit une floraison d'interprétations et de contributions dans tous les domaines de la connaissance des faits sociétaux. Sans dénier l'importance historique de ces apports à la connaissance, la question reste encore ouverte : l'oeuvre de Marx et de ses continuateurs constitue-t-elle une rupture épistémologique radicale avec la pensée dominante?

At a recent meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, it was reported that a ghost was haunting the deliberations of the assembled global elite - that of the renowned social scientist and economic historian, Karl Polanyi. In his classic work, The Great Transformation, Polanyi documented the impact of the rise of market society on western civilization and captured better than anyone else the destructive effects of the economic, political and social crisis of the 1930s. Today, in the throes of another Great Recession, Polanyi's work has gained a new significance. To understand the profound challenges faced by our democracies today, we need to revisit history and revisit his work. In this new collection of unpublished texts - lectures, draft essays and reports written between 1919 and 1958 - Polanyi examines the collapse of the liberal economic order and the demise of democracies in the inter-war years. He takes up again the fundamental question that preoccupied him throughout his work - the place of the economy in society - and aims to show how we might return to an economy anchored in society and its cultural, religious and political institutions. For anyone concerned about the danger to democracy and social life posed by the unleashing of capital from regulatory control and the dominance of the neoliberal ideologies of market fundamentalism, this important new volume by one of the great thinkers of the twentieth century is a must-read.--

Economy and society : selected writings by Karl Polanyi( Book )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures are more crucial to understanding the upheavals of our contemporary era than Karl Polanyi. In a world riven by social and economic crises, from rising inequality to the decay of democratic institutions and profound technological disruption, Polanyi’s path-breaking account of the dynamics of market capitalism and his defence of society and nature against the dangerous tendencies of the market capitalist system are more relevant than ever. This book brings together Polanyi’s most important articles and essays to give a unique selection of his essential shorter writings, mixing classic texts with significant but previously little-known pieces. It highlights the coherence and richness of Polanyi’s theoretical and political approach, making it indispensable for understanding his overarching intellectual contribution. The volume includes his interwar writings, which deal with the world economic crisis and the socialist alternative to conservative and fascist developments; his reflection on political theory and the international situation after the war; and his comparative studies of economic institutions. Polanyi’s political writings are complemented and supported by the critique of economic determinism and what he termed 'our obsolete market mentality'. --

La grande transformation : aux origines politiques et économiques de notre temps by Karl Polanyi( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La "Grande Transformation", Polanyi le montre, c'est ce qui est arrivé au monde à travers la grande crise économique et politique des années 1930-1945 : la mort du libéralisme économique. Apparu un siècle plus tôt avec la révolution industrielle, ce libéralisme était une puissante innovation du monde occidental, un cas unique dans l'histoire de l'humanité : jusque-là élément secondaire de la vie économique, le marché s'est rendu indépendant des autres fonctions et posé en élément autorégulateur. L'innovation consistait essentiellement dans un mode de pensée. Pour la première fois, on se représentait une sorte particulière de phénomènes sociaux, les phénomènes économiques, comme séparés et constituant à eux seuls un système distinct auquel tout le reste du social - à commencer par la terre, le travail et l'argent - devait être soumis. On avait désocialisé l'économie ; la grande crise des années trente imposa au monde une resocialisation de l'économie. Cette analyse du marché comme institution non naturelle suscite désormais un véritable regain d'intérêt dans un monde globalisé où le néolibéralisme est à son tour entré dans une crise dont on attend qu'il en résulte une nouvelle "grande transformation". --

La subsistance de l'homme : la place de l'économie dans l'histoire et la société by Karl Polanyi( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in French and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Penseur majeur de l?économie de marché et historien du libéralisme, Karl Polanyi reste l?un des rares théoriciens capables de nous aider à comprendre la nature du libéralisme en économie et à reconnaître les limites actuelles de nos démocraties. La Subsistance de l?homme? ouvrage inachevé paru aux États-Unis en 1977, et enfin disponible en français? prolonge et complète son oeuvre magistrale, La Grande Transformation. Polanyi y formulait une critique de l?utopie libérale du XIXe siècle à l?origine du mouvement social d?autoprotection, de l?"État providence", aujourd?hui encore fortement menacé. En prenant le parti d?analyser la subsistance de l?homme sur une très longue période historique, Polanyi offre ici une interprétation originale de la nature et des racines de l?économisme contemporain. L?économie des sociétés primitives, de la vieille Babylone, de l?Égypte ancienne et du royaume du Dahomey au XVIIIe siècle permet de repenser l?universalité et la spécificité des relations sociales et des modes d?"encastrement" de l?économie au sein de la société. Dans la Grèce antique, le commerce extérieur, les usages de la monnaie et l?émergence de marchés à l?échelle locale ou méditerranéenne sont autant d?exemples où l?échange était subordonné à la réciprocité et à la redistribution et où l?économie était étroitement liée au politique. Derrière ce travail de recherche, exigeant et exceptionnel, se déploie l?une des grandes pensées humanistes du XXe siècle, aujourd?hui indispensable pour desserrer l?emprise que la logique libérale exerce sur notre représentation de l?économie et du monde."
