The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Economics is a cutting-edge reference work to philosophical issues in the practice of economics. It is motivated by the view that there is more to economics than general equilibrium theory, and that the philosophy of economics should reflect the diversity of activities and topics that currently occupy economists. Contributions in the Handbook are thus closely tied to ongoing theoretical and empirical concerns in economics. Contributors include both philosophers of science and economists. Chapters fall into three general categories: received views in philosophy of economics, ongoing controversies in microeconomics, and issues in modeling, macroeconomics, and development. Specific topics include methodology, game theory, experimental economics, behavioral economics, neuroeconomics, computational economics, data mining, interpersonal comparisons of utility, measurement of welfare and well being, growth theory and development, and microfoundations of macroeconomics. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Economics is a groundbreaking reference like no other in its field. It is a central resource for those wishing to learn about the philosophy of economics, and for those who actively engage in the discipline, from advanced undergraduates to professional philosophers, economists, and historians.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Handbook is successful in showing us what recent philosophers of economics do and what recent [Philosophy of Economics] is, despite the fact that 'what they do' and 'what it is' is not as straightforward as it once was. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Economics will become one of the standard references for philosophers of economics. It will also become an essential part of [Philosophy of Economics] teaching. * Economics and Philosophy *
For anyone interested in the philosophy of science and economics, this unique book and its extensive references should be explored. * J. Halteman, CHOICE *
