The Theory of the Individual in Economics: Identity and Value - Routledge Advances in Social Economics (Hardback)John B. Davis (author)
- We can order this
The new approach put forward by Davis is to pay more attention to what moral philosophy may offer us in the study of personal identity, self consciousness and will. This crosses the traditional boundaries of economics and will shed new light on the distinction between positive and normative analysis in economics. With both heterodox and orthodox economics receiving a thorough analysis from Davis, this book is at once inclusive and revealing.

"I am very pleased by Davis's demonstration that the dominant academic discourse leads at best to the conclusion that "embedded" beings "might become individuals."
