Only in the past twenty years have debates surrounding modernism and postmodernism begun to have an impact on economics. This new way of thinking rejects claims that science and mathematics provide the only models for the structure of economic knowledge.

This ground-breaking volume brings together the essays of top theorists including Arjo Klamer, Deirdre McCloskey, Julie Nelson, Shaun Hargreaves-Heap and Philip Mirowski on a diverse range of topics such as gender, postcolonial theory and rationality as well as postmodernism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"All of the contributions are interesting and worth reading...anyone interested in postmodernism and its place in modern social theory would find this book a valuable introduction. It would be a good ancillary text for a history of economic thought course as well."
-Christopher J. Niggle, University of Redlands, for "Journal of Economic Issues, September 2002
