New economic book of Frankfurt School professor Carsten Herrmann-Pillath "Foundations Of Economic Evolution - A Treatise on the Natural Philosophy of Economics"

(lifePR) (Frankfurt am Main, ) Carsten Herrmann-Pillath, Professor of Economics at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management has written a new book "Foundations Of Economic Evolution: A Treatise on the Natural Philosophy of Economics" published by Edward Elgar Publishing.

The book develops an entirely new and independent theory of economics based on the philosophy of Charles Sanders Peirce, one of the intellectual fathers of American pragmatism. The core idea is that the accumulation of information and increasing energy throughputs are the driving forces of economic evolution, being two modalities of what is fundamentally a physical process. The book puts together results from different subdisciplines in economics (such as ecological economics, neuroeconomics or the economics of institutions) and the natural sciences, in particular biology and physics, and transdisciplinary sciences, such as cognitive sciences. It assembles an encompassing and systematic conceptual framework for understanding the different constituents of the economy: Individuals, networks, institutions, technology and markets.

The book is written in english and costs 85,50 Pound. It's available here: More information about the author:
