Schumpeter and the Idea of Social Science: A Metatheoretical Studyby Shionoya Yuichi, Yuichi Shionoya
Pub. Date: 07/19/2007
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book provides a unified and comprehensive analysis of the work of Joseph Alois Schumpeter (1833-1950), the world-famed economist ranking with John Maynard Keynes. Although Schumpeter is well-known for his work on economic development and innovation, his aim to construct a universal social science addressing the evolution of mind and society is usually ignored. A major contribution to the history of economic thought, this book will be the standard of Schumpeter scholarship for years to come.
