The Routledge Handbook of Economic Theology - Routledge International Handbooks (Hardback)Stefan Schwarzkopf (editor)
- Coming soon
This Handbook introduces and systematically explores the thesis that despite widespread assumptions about an increasing trend towards secularization in Western societies, the economy, economic practices and economic thought are of a profoundly theological nature.
A state-of-the-art reference work, this volume offers students, researchers and policy makers an introduction to current scholarship, significant debates, and emerging research themes in Economic Theology: the study of the theological nature of economic concepts and the religious underpinnings of mundane practices in the world of organization studies, management and economics. The chapters cover a wide array of conceptual, historical, theoretical and methodological issues and perspectives, bringing together leading international scholars from across several disciplines.
This book will be of interest to scholars and researchers in the history of economic thought, as well as the genealogy of economic theology. It will provide the point of entry for readers into this new and evolving field, and will also offer pointers for the direction of future research.
