Abstract: This review article aims to analyze some of the main contributions regarding evolutionary economics and innovation made by Richard Nelson and Sidney Winter. We reviewed, in particular, the main issues covered in the books published in 1982, such as search, routine, and selection, and 2018, such as the new and important elements of the deb...

Organizational routines have been investigated by scholars from two opposite perspectives: the first is rooted in the evolutionary economics of Nelson and Winter; the second relies on the reconceptualization of routines proposed by Feldman and Pentland. The main reason that has kept the perspectives separated concerns the issue of routine replicati...

The paper proposes an agent-based evolutionary ecological-economic model that captures the link between the economy and the ecosystem in a more inclusive way than standard economic optimization models do. We argue that an evolutionary approach is required to understand the integrated dynamics of both systems, i.e. micro–macro feedbacks. In the pape...

There are divergent views among scholars and policymakers about the nature of permissible evidence for policymaking. It is often not feasible to construct a policy system exclusively based on objective research findings, particularly for rare diseases where conventionally accepted evidence remains a rarity. Evolutionary theories in such cases offer...

Since Industry 4.0 has emerged, it has provoked discussions among managers, politicians, educators, workers, and the wide public. Involvement of new technologies into production process, but also rapid development of information and communication technologies, is associated with this concept. These tendencies are a source of concern for workers in...

A mathematical model for the development of technologies competing for common productive resources is proposed and analyzed. The model is based on the principles of evolutionary economics and constitutes a system of consumer-resource rate equations. Consumers are homogeneous populations of firms employing the same technology. The output of firms is...

In the past two decades, Evolutionary Cultural Science (ECS) has been emerging as a transdisciplinary field crossing evolutionary economics, economic sociology and evolutionary biology. The methodological key is co-evolutionary theory in terms of multi-level selection, evo-devo systemic approaches, and formal homologies in modelling tools, which al...

Firms often reconfigure their resources when responding to changes in their external or internal environment, often by incorporating new knowledge and resources in collaboration with external stakeholders. However, the reconfiguration process is challenging, costly, and often fails. The firm's history plays an important role in the resource reconfi...

For developing Cultural Science as a research field and practice it is worthwhile reconsidering the ways to approach the study of large corpora of digital content and data. In this context, Digital Humanities (DH) has been a success story in the academic world. However, we argue that it is better to consider DH as a transitory phenomenon that needs...

One of my early encounters with the term ECOLOGY, was a 1960s pop-culture poster with a small boy, holding his father's hand, precariously perched atop a mountain of garbage, and the line read "daddy what is ecology"?

From an evolutionary economics perspective, knowledge networks are self-organizing systems. Therefore, studying changes of these systems requires an understanding of how such changes are influenced by both the behaviors and characteristics of key individual actors and the network structure.
