Content Description
Capitalism in evolution global contentions--East and West ( )
10 editions published in 2001 in English and Italian and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For much of the 20th century, rivalry existed between centrally planned and capitalist solutions to the problems of economic stability and growth. This changed in the 1990s. In that same decade, the period of rapid growth of the Japanese economy came to an end and by the close of the century, the American model of capitalism was seen as the only possible option. Modern capitalism has achieved spectacular rates of innovation and growth but the system is still menaced by financial crises and economic recessions. Furthermore, there is an unacknowledged diversity of capitalist systems. Contributor

Darwin's conjecture : the search for general principles of social and economic evolution by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson ( Book )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The principles of Darwinism, which involve variation, inheritance, and selection, are increasingly of interest to social scientists. But no one has provided a truly rigorous account of how the principles apply to the evolution of human society--until now. In Darwin's Conjecture, Geoffrey M. Hodgson and Thorbjørn Knudsen reveal how these core concepts apply to a wide range of social phenomena, including business practices, legal systems, technology, and even science itself. They also critique some prominent objections to applying Darwin to social science, arguing that ultimately Darwinism functions as a general theoretical framework for stimulating further inquiry. Social scientists who adopt a Darwinian approach, they contend, can then use it to develop new explanatory theories and predictive models. This truly pathbreaking work at long last makes the powerful conceptual tools of Darwin available to the social sciences and will be welcomed by scholars and students from a range of disciplines."--BOOK JACKET

From pleasure machines to moral communities : an evolutionary economics without homo economicus by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson ( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Are humans at their core seekers of their own pleasure or cooperative members of society? Paradoxically, they are both. Pleasure-seeking can take place only within the context of what works within a defined community, and central to any community are the evolved codes and principles guiding appropriate behavior, or morality. The complex interaction of morality and self-interest is at the heart of Geoffrey M. Hodgson's approach to evolutionary economics, which is designed to bring about a better understanding of human behavior. In From Pleasure Machines to Moral Communities, Hodgson casts a critical eye on neoclassical individualism, its foundations and flaws, and turns to recent insights from research on the evolutionary bases of human behavior. He focuses his attention on the evolution of morality, its meaning, why it came about, and how it influences human attitudes and behavior. This more nuanced understanding sets the stage for a fascinating investigation of its implications on a range of pressing issues drawn from diverse environments, including the business world and crucial policy realms like health care and ecology. This book provides a valuable complement to Hodgson's earlier work with Thorbjørn Knudsen on evolutionary economics in Darwin's Conjecture, extending the evolutionary outlook to include moral and policy-related issues

Economics in the shadows of Darwin and Marx : essays on institutional and evolutionary themes by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Economics in the Shadows of Darwin and Marx examines the legacies of these two giants of thought for the social sciences in the twenty-first century." "Darwin and Marx stand out as the supreme theorists of structural change in complex living systems. Yet their analytical approaches are very different, and the idea that Darwinism has application to the social sciences is not widely appreciated. This collection of essays establishes the importance of Darwinism for economics and other social sciences, and compares the Darwinian legacy with that of Marx. Critical realism is just one of the tendencies within economics influenced by Marxism that is discussed here. The final part of the book adopts a Darwinian evolutionary approach to the analysis of institutions and routines." "Geoffrey Hodgson's new book will be warmly welcomed and received by evolutionary and institutional economists, methodologists of economics and other social sciences, heterodox economists as well as other social scientists including economic sociologists, organisation scientists and political scientists."--Jacket
