Scholars of economics and of the history and philosophy of economics examine areas in which economic and philosophical thinking converged during the closing decades of the 20th century. Within the broad themes of political economy conceived as political philosophy, the methodology and epistemology of economics, and social ontology and the ontology of economics, they discuss such topics as institutional economics from Manger and Veblen to Coase and North, rhetoric and postmodernism in economics, methodological individualism and economics, the conflict between formalism and realistic-ness in modern economics, and structure and agency in economic analysis as exemplified by Austrian economics and the material embeddedness of socio-economic life. As well as summarizing the topic, they present their own views regarding it. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
