Exploring recent controversies over the role of ethics in economics, The Boundaries of Technique encourages scholars and students to discover and debate the ways in which economics is insulated from ethics, and the ways in which it is dependent upon it. Ultimately, by bringing readers to a deeper awareness of the intrinsic involvement of the individual and the responsibility of moral choice, Yuengert makes an invaluable contriubtion to the study and practice of economics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Draws on the acount of human action in the works of Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle to present an account of economics as purposive, human enterprise and to offer a framework within which to think about the role of ethics in economics. * Journal of Economic Literature *
This book should be read by all economists, but especially Christian economists, for whom values are of vital concern. If you have the time to read one book outside of technical economics, I strongly urge you to read this one. * Faith and Economics *
This extensively documented book makes the case that economics and ethics are meaningfully related. . . .Because most other books on economic methodology do not integrate philosophy and religious thought, this book occupies a unique niche in the field. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
