Darwin's conjecture : the search for general principles of social and economic evolution by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 397 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."--Back cover

Evolution and institutions : on evolutionary economics and the evolution of economics by Geoffrey Martin Hodgson( Book )

Geoff Hodgson's innovative and important new book is about the future of economics as a viable discipline.

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 256 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

18 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 227 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

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

13 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 212 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

Topics covered include evaluations of mechanistic and biological analogies in economics in the Darwinian revolution, the use of biology in Alfred Marshall's economics, the concepts of optimisation and rationality in an evolutionary context and the inspirations that biology may offer for modern economics
