The theory of the individual in economics : identity and value by John Bryan Davis( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of the individual is central to the understanding of behavior in economics. Different approaches in economics implicitly rely on different theories of the individual. Yet economics is guilty of using this very important concept without questioning how it is theorized. This book remedies this oversight." "The new approach put forward by John B. Davis employs identity analysis to understand theories of the individual in economics. It combines philosophy and economics to determine when theories of the individual are successful. With both heterodox and orthodox economics receiving a thorough analysis, this book is at once inclusive and systematic." "Davis has produced an original book that should become essential reading for all those interested in the study of economic philosophy and methodology, but will also be of great interest to philosophers and social scientists outside economics."--Résumé de l'éditeur
A companion to the history of economic thought by Warren J Samuels( )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion offers a comprehensive and sophisticated exploration of the history of economic thought. It has a threefold focus: the history of economic thought; the history of economics as a discipline; and the historiography of economic thought. The essays in the first section focus on the history of economic ideas, with topics ranging from ancient, Medieval and Islamic thought, to Marxian, Utopian and post-war thought. The second section explores important historiographical topics, including the sociology of economics, methodology, exegesis and textuality. Each short essay serves as a complex introduction to the chosen topic, and gathered together they provide an extensive synthesis of the field as a whole. The volume should be a useful resource for anyone researching or studying the history of economic thought, and will also serve as a text for courses in this area
Individuals and identity in economics by John Bryan Davis( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the different conceptions of the individual that have emerged in recent new approaches in economics, including behavioral economics, experimental economics, social preferences approaches, game theory, neuroeconomics, evolutionary and complexity economics, and the capability approach. These conceptions are classified according to whether they seek to revise the traditional atomist individual conception, put new emphasis on interaction and relations between individuals, account for individuals as evolving and self-organizing, and explain individuals in terms of capabilities. The method of analysis uses two identity criteria for distinguishing and re-identifying individuals to determine whether these different individual conceptions successfully identify individuals. Successful individual conceptions account for sub-personal and supra-personal bounds on single individual explanations. The former concerns the fragmentation of individuals into multiple selves; the latter concerns the dissolution of individuals into the social. The book develops an understanding of bounded individuality, seen as central to the defense of human rights"--

Keynes's philosophical development by John Bryan Davis( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author begins by looking at the unpublished Apostles papers, written under the influence of the philosopher G.E. Moore. These display the tensions in Keynes's early philosophical views, and outline his philosophical concepts of the time, including the concept of intuition. Davis then shows how development and change in Keynes's philosophical thinking affected the development of his later economic thinking, and goes on to demonstrate how Keynes's later philosophy is implicit in the economic argument of The General Theory. He argues that Keynes's philosophy had by this time changed radically, that he had adjusted and revised his earlier philosophical thinking, and had abandoned the concept of intuition for the concept of convention. The author sees this as being the central idea in The General Theory, and looks at the philosophical nature of this concept of convention in detail
The social economics of health care by John Bryan Davis( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too long now, the issue of health care reform has been dominated by the techniques of mainstream economics and the constant application of the tools of cost-benefit analysis to an area that does not suit it. Issues such as privacy, genetic testing and the allocation of organ transplants require a more sensitive approach to the setting of budgets, and so a more socially responsible attitude towards health care economics is emerging. John Davis has gathered together an impressive range of contributors to explore these phenomena

The state of interpretation of Keynes by John Bryan Davis( Book )

12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in John Maynard Keynes's economic, political and philosophical thinking has undergone a tremendous revival in the last decade. The essays and comments collected in this volume were written on a set of themes representative of the current state of interpretation of Keynes's thinking. Some of the topics investigated have received much attention in the past, and some are of more recent interest. In the former category are topics on standard issues in the interpretation of Keynes's economics: the transition in Keynes's thinking from the The Treatise on Money to The General Theory, the nature of the argument in The General Theory, and Keynes's economic policy views. The latter category introduces themes of a wider nature, and includes two papers on Keynes's vision and one on Keynes's philosophical thinking. The strategy adopted in the selection of topics was to review the debates over Keynes's economics from fresh perspectives, and then go on to supply discussions of broader issues concerning the nature of Keynes as a thinker. This collection as a whole adds to our general understanding of Keynes's work, and contributes to the current revival of interest in Keynes

The life and economics of David Ricardo by John P Henderson( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John P. Henderson's The Life and Economics of David Ricardo represents the first comprehensive personal and intellectual biography of the brilliant and influential British economist. Employing the talents of both a biographer and an economist, the author examines Ricardo's early years, his Sephardic origins and his employment in the London financial markets, as well as his later work on money and banking, international trade, economic instability and the theory of rent and value. Henderson also provides a thorough investigation of Ricardo's relationships with Thomas Robert Malthus and other classical economists. The Life and Economics of David Ricardo will be of interest not only to historians of economic thought and students of economics, but also to any economist working in the Ricardian or Classical Political Economy tradition
The Economic surplus in advanced economies( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of monopoly capital is central to any satisfactory analysis of accumulation and stagnation in advanced capitalist economies. This major new book presents in one volume recent discussions of monopoly capitalism to emphasise the centrality and vitality of this tradition in modern political economy. Following the work of Kalecki, Steindl and Baran and Sweezy, a number of leading economists address key issues such as the calculation of the economic surplus, the division of income between labour and capital, oligopoly collusion over output and pricing, the growth of unproductive activity, the degree of monopoly, surplus absorption and stagnation and the history of the present crisis
Social capital and economics : social values, power, and social identity by Asimina Christoforou( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a collection of critical new perspectives on social capital theory by examining how social values, power relationships, and social identity interact with social capital. This book seeks to extend this theory into what have been largely under-investigated domains, and, at the same time, address long-standing, classic questions in the literature concerning the forms, determinants and consequences of social capital. Social capital can be understood in terms of social norms and networks. It manifests itself in patterns of trust, reciprocity, and cooperation. The authors argue that the degree to which and the different ways in which people exhibit these distinctively social behaviours depend on how norms and networks elicit their values, reflect power relationships, and draw on their social identities. This volume accordingly adopts a variety of different concepts and measures that incorporate the variety of contextually-specific factors that operate on social capital formation. In addition, it adopts an interdisciplinary outlook that combines a wide range of social science disciplines and methods of social research. Our objective is to challenge standard rationality theory explanations of norms and networks which overlook the role of values, power and identity. This volume appeals to researchers and students in multiple social sciences, including economics, sociology, political science, social psychology, history, public policy, and international relations that employ social capital concepts and methods in their research; be seen as a set of new extensions of social capital theory in connection with its themes of social values, power, and identity that would advance the scholarly literature on social norms and networks"--
