    schema:description "This book deals with the economic aspects of changing attitudes in arts and sciences. The effects of the public good character of culture, along with the very long production period and lifetime for its products, are emphasized, since both contribute to the failure of normal market solutions. Embodiment of ideas, and the consequences of modern reproduction technology for protection of property rights are closely examined. The evolution within arts and sciences, which often seems to return to previously scrapped ideals, is illustrated by detailed case studies, in which the importance of changing tastes, rather than progress proper, is emphasized. The author attempts an understanding for this using Darwinian evolution in combination with modern mathematical complexity theory, expressed in terms accessible to the general reader. The second edition is extended and updated especially as regards the illustration material. Professor Puu () introduces a fourth approach [to cultural economics]. () working it like a triangle, Arts, Sciences and Economics is, in a sense, inductive in nature. An observation made in one of the arts or the natural & engineering sciences (henceforth sciences) or economics is extended to cover the other two points of the triangle. The temporal plane of this triangle covers the pre-Renaissance to the 21st century with a special and loving emphasis on the Baroque.(...) Professor Puus method reminds me of Pascals Pens©♭es (), it also reminds me of Goethe () Unlike Goethe, however, the certain order achieved by Professor Puu is mathematical rather than intuitive or aesthetic in nature. Underpinning the text is the correlation between Arts, Sciences and Economics through mathematics. And mathematics covers the waterfront from probability to chaos theory () This underpinning does, however, reveal Professor Puu as having a very well developed mathematical mind (). Similarly, his cultural and historical erudition cannot be faulted but rather must be praised. The text is rich in example. () This book is not a narrative with a beginning, middle and end. It is Professor Puus Pens©♭es. () Calculatory rationalism is not the only tool of economics. Arguably, this is one implication of the term knowledge-based economy. To such an economy, however, Professor Puu has made a most valuable and fascinating contribution.(...)
