Economics and Utopia : why the learning economy is not the end of history by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 2,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than just a consideration of economic alternatives, the book is also a contribution to the critique of mainstream economics which is considered to be unable to understand the market system except in the most formal and abstract terms. Thus in order to imagine new worlds a change in our economic thinking is necessary, one that focuses on the relationship between learning and knowledge in economic systems, as well as on the institutional and cultural context of different economic models
Darwin's conjecture : the search for general principles of social and economic evolution by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,139 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."--Jacket

Conceptualizing capitalism : institutions, evolution, future by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few centuries ago, capitalism set in motion an explosion of economic productivity. Markets and private property had existed for millennia, but what other key institutions fostered capitalism's relatively recent emergence? Until now, the conceptual toolkit available to answer this question has been inadequate, and economists and other social scientists have been diverted from identifying these key institutions. Geoffrey M. Hodgson offers readers a more precise conceptual framework. Drawing on a new theoretical approach called legal institutionalism, Hodgson establishes that the most important factor in the emergence of capitalism, but also among the most often overlooked, is the constitutive role of law and the state
From pleasure machines to moral communities : an evolutionary economics without homo economicus by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 355 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
Evolution and institutions : on evolutionary economics and the evolution of economics by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique and important contribution to our understanding, this book will be welcomed by academics and researchers working in all fields of economics, especially evolutionary economics, as well as by other social scientists

Economics in the shadows of Darwin and Marx : essays on institutional and evolutionary themes by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 236 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

Wrong turnings : how the left got lost by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Left is in crisis. Despite global economic turbulence, left-wing political parties in many countries have failed to make progress in part because they have grown too ideologically fragmented. Today, the term Left is associated with state intervention and public ownership, but this has little in common with the original meaning of the term. What caused what we mean by the Left to change, and how has that hindered progress? With Wrong-Turnings, Geoffrey M. Hodgson tracks changes in the meaning of the Left and offers suggestions for how the Left might reclaim some of its core values. The term Left originated during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries sought to abolish the monarchy and privilege and to introduce a new society based on liberty, equality, fraternity, and universal rights. Over time, however, the meaning radically changed, especially through the influence of socialism and collectivism. Hodgson argues that the Left must rediscover its roots in the Enlightenment and readopt Enlightenment values it has abandoned, such as those concerning democracy and universal human rights. Only then will it be prepared to address contemporary problems of inequality and the survival of democracy. Possible measures could include enhanced educational provisions, a guaranteed basic income, and a viable mechanism for fair distribution of wealth. Wrong Turnings is a truly pathbreaking work from one of our most prolific and respected institutional theorists. It will change our understanding of how the left got lost
