Thus, this article discusses Marx’s critical reception of his predecessors and the investigation after him. In this respect, Hicks’ distinction of capital th...

Understanding reproduction at three levels—the biological, the social or cultural, and the economic—the author introduces an evolutionary perspective into political economy in a broader sense. After criticizing the deterministic traits of the so-cal...
Chapter
This chapter explores a historical example of a systemic change that occurred in the late twentieth century, that is, the transition from a socialist planned economy to a capitalist market economy. Starting from the debate among Marxists on the “transition from capitalism to socialism,” it moves to the process of dissolution of the socialist regime...
Chapter
This chapter extends the analysis of approval theory to sociological exchange theory. In contrast to economic exchange, the network of social exchange makes binding constraints in and out of the organization. The market conditions outside of the organization, including “risk,” influences the internal structure of the organization. The interaction b...
Chapter
Adam Smith’s concept of division of labor is an inexhaustible fountain for evolutionary ideas in economics. It not only enhances productivity and generates diversity but also gives birth to the peculiar institution of money and capital. Under capitalism, the transaction between employer and employee reflects the relationship between the class of ca...
Chapter
Starting from the peculiarity of “merchants” and “commercial society,” this chapter discusses the development of commercial and financial relations as the superstructure of the capitalist market economy. In this domain, claims about the imaginary value dominate real economy. This development is grounded on the pursuit of efficient circulation on th...
Chapter
This chapter’s basic theme is that of social philosophy: how is order in human society possible and what is the structure of its order? Naturally, the structure of social order relates to ethical problems in rules and duties. The author begins with a dispute over property and civil society in which he was involved in his twenties and sketches his s...
Article
Kiyoshi Miki (1897-1945) fut le philosophe dominant des débuts de l’ère Showa (à partir de 1925) au Japon. Il entama sa réflexion en appliquant l’herméneutique phénoménologique aux pensées de Pascal et de Marx puis il se mit en quête d’une philosophie de l’histoire où la conscience présente de l’historicité est centrale. Il allait reconnaître un ty...
Article
Beginning the first section with Joseph Heath’s criticism on Jürgen Habermas’s discourse ethics, the author clarifies the structure of deontological ethics in its Kantian version and discourse ethics version. He argues that if we are not satisfied with a transcendental inference, we should take a naturalistic approach to the problem of ethics and n...

Article
This book intends to renovate the view of social sciences in the German-speaking world. It explores the intellectual tension in the social science in Austria and Germany in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. It deals with how the emergence of the new school (Austrian School) changed the focus of social science in the German speaking...
Article
In the last stages of his scholarly life, Sugihara Shiro (1920-2009) wished to collate his lifeʼs research on the history of economic thought in a four-volume work. The ti-tles of these volumes were descriptive of not only his area of research but also his peculiar viewpoint applied in those areas. In the first volume, which is on Marx, Sugi-hara e...
Book
Recent events in the global financial markets and macro economies have served as a strong reminder for a need of a coherent theory of capitalist crisis and analysis. This book helps to fill the gap with well-grounded alternative articulations of the forces which move today's economic dynamics, how they interact and how ideas of foundational figures...
Chapter
After nearly 20 years of retirement, Carl Menger died on 26 February 1921, leaving behind a considerable number of notes and manuscripts as well as over 20,000 books. In the turbulent and inflationary days after the war, the bereaved sold the main part of the library — one of the best collections of economic literature in the world — to a universit...
Chapter
Although pre-modern China possessed rich ideas pertaining to economic matters, they were not separated from the discourse of morality and politics. Even in the late 20th century, Chinese thinking, often unconsciously, reflected traditional ideas. Liberal economics missed the chance to guide the modernization of China. Marxian economics established...

This article traces Schumpeter's texts that fit his definition of "economic sociology" given in the introductory chapter of History of Economic Analysis (1954). The findings are as follows: (1) Since his early years, Schumpeter had a vision of "socio–cultural development" that was characterized by a general interdependence and a distinction between...
Article
Concerned about the prevailing view of Max Weber with the bias of intellectualism, the author explores the possibility of an evolutionary reading of Weber. He finds that an evolutionary scheme is conceivable in Weber's discussion of diversified concepts of ‘rationality.’ Though Weber rejected evolutionism with the reason that ‘selection’ cannot exp...

Article
Do economists realize the historicity of their discipline? Are they coming back to the camp of historians? It is too soon to tell, but there are signs that economists have begun to realize the significance of history, culture, and institutions. We can see this anticipated in the contributions of several renowned economists in the anniversary editio...
Article
A series of radical political changes in East-European nations after the fall of the Berlin Wall renewed the discussion of the concept of ‘ civil society’. Around the same time in Asia, headed by South Korea and Taiwan, the movement toward democracy formed a wave overturning or transforming authoritarian governments. The march of liberal democracy...

Chapter
Giving a glance to the collapse of the etatist socialist economies, the late Professor Murakami predicted the emergence of the “developmentalism debate” in the intellectual world that had been so far occupied by the great debate on “socialism.”2 The term “developmentalism” signifies here a general attitude of developing nations to whom the state-le...
Chapter
A quarter century ago historians of economics celebrated the centenary of the “Marginal Revolution in Economics.” Among the three main figures of this revolution, Menger was more fortunate than other two, Jevons and Walras, that he could have a special conference dedicated to him personally in Vienna besides the Bellagio Conference where all the th...
