From the Publisher"Dolfsma’s book is an interesting contribution, which goes beyond economics and management theory and instead draws on different fields of social science. One has to give credit to Dolfsma’s intrepid ambitions in crossing disciplinary borders to better comprehend how knowledge can be understood and explained. The sheer volume of literature on these topics we have seen lately shows that these are some of the most fascinating, and maybe hardest to grasp, of economic processes.It is therefore important to keep the debate open, and look beyond the realms of one’s own discipline to find further elucidation.As Dolfsma himself says in the final remarks of the book, one must understand that ‘there can be another perspective of a single phenomenon, and it requires one to sensibly use the concept offered, combining them fruitfully with other insights’."
